At least the old group didnt lay down for Bach or his dirty attorney. Watching this Council is like watching paint dry.
bad and boring article, who cares?
Didnt the old Council actually vote at one time to get their own attorney? Chris Melcher put the old Council in terrible positions from almost the beginning of his employment. He has lied, gone directly to press to mislead, attends events he has no business attending, reported as ignoring Council requests for timely information, undermined Utilities and has paid out more taxpayer money to outside law firms then any previous attorney all while losing and settling millions of dollars of lawsuits. He was practically fired from Colorado College for dirty dealings and brought his unethical and scheming ways to the City. He needs to be fired.
"I warned people..." gosh darn it crank, if we would only listen to you...
The funniest comment of the month comes from crank himself, "...there's something smelly going on down there...". Have you figured it out yet old dude?
Something isn't adding up.
Keith King seems to have been painted as a crony of Mayor Botch but suddenly he and the whole council feel a need to have their own legal counsel. Keep digging, there's something smelly going on down there...probably Botch and Melcher.
I warned people not to elect Botch and not to adopt a "strong dictator" charter. By the time we get rid of this clown it's going to cost us more than Rivera's follies.
It looks to me like Council's focus is on fighting the mayor instead of managing city business. Or is it simply the Indy's attempt to make it seem that way?
Anschutz killed Jackson as sure as he has killed the Gazette.
This is the stupidest trial of all time. Anchutz isn't responsible for Jackson being a crackhead like Whitney Houston or Rick James.
WOW! Who says, "it isn't all about money?!?!?" - because, in reality, "YES IT IS!!!" These two mega-rich people will duke it out and fight to the death because of the ALMIGHTY DOLLAR. Yes, IT REALLY IS ABOUT $MONEY$ - for EVERY PERSON ON THIS PLANET.
C'mon, Bill- it's still the longest running tragicomedy in local history. We should be proud that we each had bit parts in the show years ago. And Scott - who else could play you? Maybe the young DeNiro "You talkin' to me??!!"
Robert Redford??!! I'm flattered but my wife won't stop laughing!
Will it be a comedy, drama, chick flick, gay flick, tragedy, or action adventure series?
John, obviously you're not a member of the CSA! ;-)
"City Council" would probably play well here in COS as a reality show, but I don't think the rest of the country's viewers would get our sense of humor.
Wah wah, we have lost countless years of pointy headed political genius, wah wah. This is one of those politician becomes media hack-job whack job deals, right?
Only an idiot would want to serve now on Colorado Springs City Council and get no pay, no respect. City and County is all partisan. There is no fair representation any longer.
Common sense not ideology should guide our city...this is why Jan Martin was not elected.
But King Kong of the City using brut force is not good either.
Perhaps it would have been useful for this article to actually ASK the rookies why they did not want Jan Martin as council president.
Personally I found her way of "leading" on the Memorial Hospital issue to be both impetuous and financially misguided - especially given the handling of severance payments and the incomplete outcome of the PERA situation. I am glad she is no longer in such a position.
"Cry me a river."
THIS JUST IN: The ultra liberal Colorado legislature, in an attempt to be the first to overreact and in light of the bombings in Boston, have voted to ban all pressure cookers. Crock pot owners are 'up in arms' worrying that they will be next.
