Supporters of the Denver preschool initiative say early childhood education sets the stage for future success. They are asking voters to raise the sales tax by 1.2 cents on every $10. The money would help families offset some of the cost of preschool. Zack Neumeyer is a Denver businessman who works in the hotel industry. He served on the task force that crafted the proposal. Denver City Councilwoman Jeanne Faatz is the only council member who voted against the measure. They talk to Ryan Warner.
