Re: “Cirque du Soleil's OVO impresses

Cirque shows are amazing; we've seen two of them, they are part of the reason Ringling Bros just announced they are folding their tents and shutting down.

Once Ringling stopped elephant acts last year ticket sales declined notably; the rest of their show isn't competitive with "Cirque" or the horse-based Cavalia shows.

If we want to see lions, tigers and elephants we can go to the zoo.

Re: “Local developers make two picks for Colorado Springs City Council

People of Colorado Springs: WAKE UP.

Developers, greedsters of all sorts, and lying politicians want to steal CSU out from under us. Remember how they tried to steal Memorial Hospital System and GIVE it to McEvoy? We put an end to that crap; we need to stop this crap.

They will privatize CSU, jack up rates, and laugh all the way to the bank.

Is it so horrible that CSU rates are 25% cheaper than Pueblo, Denver or Boulder? Is it terrible that CSU service is excellent? Is it a crime that money we spend on CSU stays local? Do we want to muddy the best water in the country? Do you want to pay 25% more?

They foisted the "strong mayor" on us and now they want their bought and paid for mayors to pick a Utility Board of their own scammers which will be the pathway used to steal CSU out from under us. Do NOT forfeit your right to vote on the future of CSU.

If we need to replace Drake we can do that without term-limits crook Lathen, the cabal of developers behind her, and phony organizations like CSF.

Do NOT be fooled by nice sounding names put on false-front organizations, the only thing they plan to move "forward" is their own wealth.

WAKE UP. Do not let them steal CSU for themselves and their pals.

Re: “Local developers make two picks for Colorado Springs City Council

Robert Gentry:

Respectfully disagree. There is a third choice. With any luck, there will be at least one candidate for each seat who is neither "yes sir Mr. Mayor - as you say" nor bought and paid for by wealthy developers. The former invites another Strawberry Fields (Rosemont?) and the latter invites further unbridled and uncontrolled urban sprawl in a town which even now cannot support its infrastructure.

Our job, in the next three-and-a-half months, is to determine if such candidates are running. I personally accused our Parks Department of not doing due diligence on Strawberry Fields. That cuts both ways. This IS a critical election, and the future of Colorado Springs rests upon the willingness of voters to do their due diligence and know exactly who they are putting in office.

Re: “Local developers make two picks for Colorado Springs City Council

"Utilities Board Members would be appointed by the Mayor"

An 'All Appointed Board' for Colorado Springs Utilities:

Is that a healthy choice for the community?

When voting on candidates supported by Colorado Springs Forward, understanding the goal of a 'slate of candidates' under control of Colorado Springs Forward and Nor'Wood might be a matter to give thought to. The current city council members did a workmanlike job of keeping this group at bay and thwarting their effort to gain control over our Utilities.

With Nor'Wood Development being the 'defacto' executive branch of city government - with Jeff Greene second in command and Amy Lathen the CEO of Colorado Springs Forward - keeping in office those they hope to unseat might assure a more measured approach to the future governance of Utilities!

Re: “Colorado Springs Forward holds fundraiser for select council candidates

Colorado Springs Forward favors 'an all appointed' board of directors for Colorado Springs with their original draft proposal - that created a minor firestorm - called for the appointments to be made by the Mayor. Doonya is correct - this is a group to scrutinize closely as they have done nothing positive for the community but are excellent at fund-raising.

Re: “Colorado Springs Forward holds fundraiser for select council candidates

CSF can only win the April election for their chosen council members if the majority of Colorado Springs voters buy what Colorado Springs Forward is selling (literally). That voting majority outnumbers CSF by at least 1000 to one. There hasn't been a more critical vote for a new council in recent memory. If ever there was a time for each and every voter in Colorado Springs to think for his and her own self, this election is that time. One man, one vote.
