Mr. Malthusian, what a clever argument you make against "working on transgender issues" when you write, "Jill [Gaebler] is a L-I-B-E-R-A-L." Had you merely written "liberal," or even "Liberal," with a capital L, it would not have been nearly so convincing. Even setting every letter in upper case alone would not have made the point that "working on transgender issues" is "outrageous!" However, capitalizing every letter and separating each one with a dash was a stroke of genius without parallel in these pages. I am sure you have swayed even the most obstinate readers to your position!
Really Zoe? How about Detroit? I think that is a far greater illustration of the failure of 1 party rule... Democrat rule. My god woman, how can you keep a straight face when you say that?
How is this a solid plan using more of taxpayer's money to pay for transiets, drug users, and those with mental illness? Mayor Bach is readily offering taxpayer's money for every project he thinks will give him a legacy. We want to keep our money Stevie Boy, stop spending it.
she drove on "snowy roads to Denver on Dec. 4 to speak in uniform at the Economic Development Commission hearing on City for Champions "to be a good community partner," as a federal officer, she's barred from endorsing state government activities". She cant endorse but presents her opinion while wearing her uniform. Abuse of the uniform for sure.
I don't want to see Peggy anymore than I have to. Anyone can see that she is a little high school cheerleader that will shake her pom pom's for anyone that will make her look good.
What exactly has any of these young professionals done to help this City? There numbers for voting are non existant. The only clubs mentioned above are social gatherings to drink at the Ritz. Young professionals under the Chamber and EDC are mostly endulged melennium types whos daddy's have given them businesses to run -Toby Gannett. They push agenda items like C4C with hopes of the powers at be throwing them scraps of a job or a committee position make believing they have any real power. The only young professional, Brandy Williams to serve in City leadership has been married three times alraedy and is only 30 years old. First she pushed every liberal agenda while on Council, tried to destroy our Utility, sold our hospital for a terrible deal, and although claiming to be a Republican she now is married to a union City fireman. Bet her votes for Fire while on Council was generous. So where are these young professional when things count? Many of this generation show no morals or sanctity of marriage and committment, no work ethic, no leadership skills, no interest. Keep moving to Denver. Peggy Littleton is a conservative woman married over 30 years. She is solid. Her only disadvantage is that she only gets along with 2 of the 5 Commissioners. Her and Clark and Lathen are not friendly.
I think a fresh set of eyes and a new approach is a good thing. I like that Walker is not a politician. Littleton needs to allow some new blood up there. Lord knows we need it. I saw that she is supporting Sheriffs candidate Bill Elder who seems to have an issue with integrity and has a list of supporters who lie. (Pete Carey and many others) I would really like to see someone who has a true caring for his community in this seat. I'll stand behind you Walker.
I remember years ago the City contracted snowplowing and it was a disaster and cost taxpayers alot of money. Hope a competitive RFP was done.
Bring on the drilling.
Its outrageous that this fraud of a politician is working on transgender rights, goats, and pushing for citizens to pay for projects that private businesses should pay for when our roads are being washed away with every storm. Short haircut, bad marriage, marijuna supporter, and Jan Martin's best friend. Jill is a L-I-B-E-R-A-L.
Get Peggy Littleton out!! She is a snake. I've never seen a women more consumed with herself. She jumps on any bandwagon that she thinks will make her look good. I'm ashamed to have her as my commissioner. I'm spreading to word to get someone else. ANYONE!!

So we haven't elected a Democrat to the El Paso County Board of Commissioners since 1970 - I haven't seen a better illustration of the failure of one party rule. At the very least, we need another voice on the board - otherwise no one is accountable.
I recently heard that Victor was already let go. That doesn't surprise me much. What does surprise me is that this particular publication insists on proliferating the out and out lie about his "master chef" status. He is not, in any way shape or form, a master chef. There are chefs who work hard their whole lives to achieve this honored status, and it is an insult to all of them to allow this person to claim this with nothing to back it up. I thought that journalism is supposed to be based in fact, not myth.
It's about time we try to leverage our city's support of the USA Olympic committee into something more tangible. That being said, I think that group has finally realized that Colorado Springs is a dead end street - so don't be surprised to find them looking at more vibrant (and rich) cities as their next home within the next decade.
Why the big hurry to spend $200 million of public money? If this proposal cannot stand some in-depth scrutiny then it must not be well founded.
To raise the taxes it will have to go to the voters...and then we would finally have a chance to put an end to this silly plan the old behind the times have cooked up.
CSindyReader: These questions about Federal government and UCCS were posed in a letter to the EDC before the decisions was made to grant $4M/year. An article in the Denver Post stated that some board members were surprised that CS got that much. They were anticipating$53M total for the 30 years. Makes no difference as the $4M/year will be sucked up by consultants and soothsayers of economic prognostications. Also the letter stated that stadiums are money losers and the USOC can tap it's corporate donors for a museum if they are so inclined to build one (this would be #4). An article in the Washington Post said that maybe it's time to send the USOC and IOC packing since they have become so politicized. I tend to agree with them. We haven't gotten much for the $53M we gave the USOC.
Not to worry, though. Colorado Springs will not be in compliance with the requirements that have been stipulated and the monies will stop and the town will have to give back what they received. Hopefully the citizens will not be on the hook for too much.
