Running for any office in particular or just:
"Elected Official At Large"
Thought of the day..................
I'm loco, I wonder if Staci will vote for me?
Let's keep John Morse in office. Volunteer to help keep local politics local!
Awesome, more support for the cause !!
If someone handed me that rag of a paper I would firstly assume I would not be able to have an intelligent conversation with anyone in a town that depended on that as its news source.
Then I would actually just head straight for the counter to buy a one way ticket back out of town.
Not good for Bach to make a connection between himself in that half baked 'we don't have reporters in the budget' advertising circular.
Golly Pam, with all the favorable stories you write, why would the gazette need bother?
Typical liberal hubris:
I know that Woodland Park is always looking for some way to make it a "destination" town. Just sayin'...
rfk: After disregarding your feeble attempts to be sarcastically cute ("cap pistols", "play cowboy", "center of your universe"), one need only a single sentence to discern how ridiculously partisan and pathetic your post was. "But most people have grown weary of the ubiquitous NRA bullying tactics." "most people" It is hilarious how dim-witted, self-absorbed liberals think that, if they believe something, "most" other people also believe it. Please (attempt to) back up your theory that "most people have grown weary". You obviously have no clue what "ubiquitous" means. The only time I see the NRA mentioned is by anti-gun zealots looking for a phony boogeyman. Lastly, please provide examples of the "bullying tactics" of which you have grown so weary.
By the by, I am not a member of the NRA and the only guns I own are shotguns for bird hunting. I simply do not particularly care for loud-mouthed liberals.
Cowards? Really? You need 100 round magazines while many of us seem to get through life without needing a gun for life support. So who's the coward? We're not afraid of background checks, why are you? And no one's taking away your cap pistols - you can still play cowboy all you want and continue to have firearms as the center of your universe. But most people have grown very weary of the ubiquitous NRA bullying tactics. I'm proud that we have lawmakers like John Morse who have the courage to stand up to the NRA's one-sided interpretation of the 2nd Amendment.
“Attracts big money on both sides” my butt. Take the time to look at the facts and who is behind the $20,000 plus donated to help the misguided Morse and compare it to the hard working ordinary folk from Colorado who are donating to get him out. Democratic lawmakers “hard work”, well maybe, but “bravery” what horse poop. They are cowards for pushing through laws that serve no purpose other than to make them look good (only when looking in the mirror). They took the easy wrong instead of listening to Coloradoans and taking their time to do the hard right. This will be evident soon when they are looking for a job.
Hey Otto, maybe you should refrain from sniffing his breath.
But in Monument people actually live IN Pikes Nat'l Forest, not merely abutting it. And the Monument area will be a focus of drilling leases.
please keep it local, we've got some rally good growers!
Mayor Snyder is a known pot-head. One whiff of his breath is a giveaway. Just sayin...
"Gateway" drug -- really? For a majority of people the primary gateway drugs are ALCOHOL and PRESCRIPTION drugs from parent's liquor and medicine cabinets. Methinks someone watched "Reefer Madness" too many times! I really don't understand what these people (Mayor Bach, Dan May, John Suthers, lol, and even TejonTech, etc) are sooooooo afraid of with legalized marijuana use and sale??? I'd rather see alcohol prohibition come back and leave marijuana alone. It's much safer to the population!
Sue his lying ass! I thought the city council controlled the purse strings? If so use the power .
he wants to make a straw man out of Marijuana, to distract people from all the money he has wasted paying off people with golden parachutes.
The Mayor has no trouble trying to "change" the charter without a vote from the public when it is giving himself and his administration more power. The charter does need to be reviewed and revised by an independent citizen committee and not one hand selected by Mr. Bach. This should have been thought out and then voted on prior to the Council-Mayor form of government was ever allowed to be put in motion. Wasn't he also against a ballot issue on the last election asking if the City Attorney should be an elected position? So he actively is against anything which may limit his power grab.
primary employers? and the 86 locally owned and operated medical marijuana centers? they don't count? 86 leases, plus over 140 leased grow operations, that is almost 300 local leases, insurance contracts, hundreds of local jobs, security contracts, packaging, labeling contracts, transportation contracts, and so much more. Bach continues to use the same old tired lies that have been used for over 90 years. For what? Public safety? I'm not sure, but in the last 3 years, I have yet to see 1 single case where a child walked into a marijuana center and purchased cannabis. Let's hope that the city council stands up to this mockery of democracy as proposed by Bach.
