Of course, we aren't a true democracy...But at that level, we sorta are.
But the People have spoken:
Ousted (some of) the overreaching legislators who went against the will of their constituents.
A lesson to all the rest of them, both in Colorado and outside that state. A lesson that the people expect representation, not to be ignored and left with party politics. That they expect the person elected to represent their views to the governing body will actually represent their constituents.
Good on ya, citizens of Colorado.
