No time for losers

Dear Council President King and Councilman Knight,

My husband and I recently attended the "Music of Queen" concert put on by the Colorado Springs Philharmonic at the Pikes Peak Center. The concert closed out with the epic "We Are the Champions," which was timely for Colorado Springs. When it began, the audience rose to its feet, waving their arms and singing at the top of their lungs. The sense of exuberance was thrilling.

The people of Colorado Springs are ready for action — to move this city forward, bring prosperity and quality of life to its citizens, and attract new blood into the community. Everybody needs to get behind the City for Champions initiative and make it happen.
