Re: “The PERA saga continues, trails reopen, and more

Amazing how the City Council can't spare $50,000 for an MJ ballot issue, but seems to have no issue with risking tens of millions of dollars in punitive damages in the PERA issue.

Re: “Maketa recall underway, Supreme Court says Gessler overstepped, Lamborn and Rayburn square off

All Lamborn can do is throw mud and then claim the other guy has no track record to lean on. Hopefully that old strategy won’t work this time around. What has Lamborn got to lean on? Oh yeah, he's a lawyer....forgot. Jeez what a surprise that Lamborn would stand there and say Mr. Rayburn had no record to stand on when the distinguished retired Air Force leader managed a budget larger than our state's. Add in all the over-the-top honors Mr. Rayburn has amassed in addition to defending our nation's freedom through his professional military career and then guess what; he's NOT a lawyer thank God.

Lamborn is an unmitigated idiot. I'm sorry but I have to call 'em like I see 'em.

Re: “Sheriff tax rakes it in, Philipps to ship out, more

It looks like the Sheriff overestimated the amount of tax dollars he needed, as he could only find a way to spend $10 million of his $17 million windfall - thus you should expect some wasteful expenditures real soon. I hear the military has some excess MRAPs and Swiftboats for sale.

Imagine if only SOME of this money could go towards road repairs or stormwater issues...

Perhaps we need to combine the Mayor's ballot issue with a ballot issue that reduces the Sheriff's money before we allow our old and new sheriffs an opportunity to waste $50 million.

So will the sheriff's tax be overseen by the psychology major Maketa promoted??? Luckily, the budget is invisible to anyone but those two. Easier that way.

At least Rayburn has proven himself human by the mistake but more importantly has earned his uniform with his service to our country. Thank you Mr. Rayburn and may you be voted into Congress to take your service experience there to represent us with pride and strength.

Re: “All Pikes Peak Reads, Pride Fest snags, Lamborn's self-loan, more

Why doesn't Dr. Dobson or Lamborn's church or other Lamborn supporters give the 100K? I remember two years ago Lamborn's camp blasting the Blaha children for donating some of their own money to support their father's campaign. I don't know what's happening here but something doesn't smell right when a candidate loans himself his own money to mudsling his opponent's impressive military career with accusations that Lamborn's own legal firm is guilty of. Will Lamborn also claim the 100k as a tax free donation as well? I pray we'll see Lamborn's going back home parade this time around....sigh.
