I'm glad to see our friend has been victorious!
Justice has been served!
I voted for Skorman. Bach actually lost the first election but the HBA and Bach's other puppeteers included a sneaky little caveat requiring that the winner of the election needed to win by a required margin which then prompted another election and we are now stuck with this unethical cranky old man who needs to retire. Great job Colorado Springs conservatives!
Bach is gonna cost CS more money, more money and more money. Now don't you wish you had voted for Richard Skorsman, who was a previous counsel member and vise mayor??? When is this town going to learn not to vote for someone just cause they are a Republican candidate or not to vote for against someone who is a Democrat? The better man should have been elected, then we wouldn't be going thru this crap with Bach!
The sooner this man is no longer Mayor the better. His visions of Colorado Springs do not match the personality of Colorado Springs.
That really was an epic speech. Let's do this and do this right.
Jill Gaybler is a flip flopper. She's really a liberal and proved no friend of Mayor Steve Bach's. She got the job on Council being Susie Bach's friend (who you know had the City Clerk fix the election results). What a joke.
Put "marijuana prohibitionist" next to Hillary Clinton's name and then start laughing at the poll results.
Really? Hall and Oates? Cat Stevens? Is Bryan Adams next? Celine Dion must be on the list soon as well then. By this list, Michael Bolton should be in next year for sure.
As a Utilities rate payer I strongly object to subsidized watering for City Parks. I had to get rid of my lawn because I cannot afford to pay the price it costs to water it. The City needs to find a reasonable solution and not expect money from specific Utilities services to be taken and used for the municipal parks. It is hard to come to grips with this issue but in the end we live in a semi-arid biome and have suffered incredible drought in recent years. Find a way to fund watering parks without robbing Peter to pay Paul.
I LIKE the fact that EPS will provide the county an "outsiders" opinion to balance and perhaps dampen the "insiders" highly optimistic estimates of how many new out-of-state tourists will come to COS because we have built for their enjoyment a stadium/museum complex.
I went to the link and read about the Copper Ridge shopping center/road development. The county commissioners were wise to follow EPS assessment and nix this private/govt deal.
Yes of course!
No new taxes to pay for this boondoggle.
County assessor website indicates 30 S. Prospect is owned by the Gazette
Same website shows two owners for 522 S. Wahsatch Ave (a warehouse)
http://land.elpasoco.com/ScheduleDisplay.a… (TJ&TC, LLC)
The listing for 522 S. Wahsatch (TJ&TC, LLC) says this owner is at 2245 Broadway Ave.
The listing for2245 Broadway Ave shows the owner is Charles Murphy.
Whatever, glad that Ranch Foods is growing expanding.
With what is known to date, would you vote in favor of public funding for C4C?
Quick one question poll. Thank you.
Our city council members represent US. Do you have questions re the stadium, the museum, or the federal owned AFA visitors center, or the state owned UCCS medical tourism project? Let our council members know what you think of assuming a 30-year obligation to pay principal and interest totaling $350M on the issued bonds. The taxpayers will be paying 80% of the cost of building C4C. Will building a stadium/museum complex bring economic prosperity to anyone other than the property owners and developers? We need to know ALL the financial details. We need to know ALL the potential benefits and ALL the certain financial risks. And the mayor needs to keep his promise that ALL bonds will require voter approval before being issued. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org They want to hear from their constituents on this hugely important issue.
This better bring Public Transportation up and down the front range !!! I envy Denver's lightrail system !!!
The Gazette said today that the building they own is located at 522 South Wahsatch (not North).
This is not the day for champagne toasts, unless you're the mayor, the property owner or the property developer. The rest of us, we taxpayers who will be on the hook to make payments on $350M in bonds to be issued - an amount in addition to the $120M which will hopefully be received over 30 years from the state - are not celebrating. Today we have witnessed state govt granting COS sales tax rebates in full as requested. The state - who has no obligation to make the payments on COS bonds - has cleverly found a way via the EDC of luring otherwise fiscally conservative cities to make financially reckless decisions.
And what of the will of the people, those who will be paying for almost all of C4C? Do the citizens want C4C? Do they know what the cost is to them and their obligation for paying? Do they know that the city's borrowing power will be used up by C4C and that essential needs, such as storm water, will require a tax increase? And, if sales tax revenues above the C4C base point are not realized, do they know that taxes will have to be raised? The citizens have not been told about the financial risks of building a stadium, museum, etal. Will the citizens be allowed to vote of the bond issue, as the mayor promised? Will the Gazette inform the citizens of the financial risks involved? And will the Indy ignore its reportorial duty and get on the bandwagon? Or will the Indy report all the facts, the economic benefits as well as the financial risks?
