By Kyle Swartz

Why "guild"? Seventy-five years ago, why did the founders of the Wine and Spirits Guild of America choose this term for their newly formed industry group? Rather than, say, "association"?

I hope you will consider a ‘NO’ vote on Propositions #124, #125, and #126, which are on the ballot this November.

The out-of-state billion dollar corporations funding these initiatives have no regard for Colorado's small businesses and the local economy. Family-owned...
