Not agreed that Bach broke the city.
It was the 5 member junta on the city council that has embarrassed our city.
Keith King set the tone for trying to take power. He is the number one person at fault, followed close behind by Joel Miller.
I watched all three of the links. Every person in the city should watch this. I have a feeling that this is the norm not exception.
Embarrassing that people can be on City Council and routinely try to disgrace our city. The media must inform the public about the antics of the Council. Please help our city and expose this lunacy. We can’t wait until a new council is seated. Please get the word out now.
Oh please my beloved Colorado Springs don’t just take the best short term deal like you usually do. Just because the likes of HCA-HealthONE or other deep pocket out of Staters will dump a lot of upfront money at us we may miss a better long term solution.
Such as teaming with the University Of Colorado.
This could help make Colorado Springs a Medical Research and Training center. It may be less money now but it could change the Springs forever. Remember the story of Canon City being promised either the State Prison or Colorado State University. Their choice, the prison because it was more money sooner. Let us not make the decision only on today’s needs but on our future.
Plus how much property tax is now lost. A new business could have moved in and provides jobs and tax revenue for the city. But no, we now have a county buiding that is in the wrong place. reel Samrt laedres!
Martin Drake Power Plant needs to be closed. It is an embarrassment to our city. The location next to downtown and a park named America The beautiful is a drag on the heart of the city. This Dirty Coal plant must be closed and a new plant opened next to Nixon. The area then could be redeveloped and offer more growth for the city. If the utilities have to be sold to a private company to make this happen, so be it.
Why don’t we outreach to the Mayor and Council. Closing it down is good for business, the environment and the city. I will gladly pay higher rates to make this happen.
Please Mr. Hazlehurst lead the fight. You are the only one who can build the momentum to accomplish this incredibly import endeavor.
I am so sorry for my hometown to have this kind of hate. I ask Mayor Bach to lead and make sure that everyone is wlecome and safe. Colorado Springs, we can do better. We must do better.
Mr Milbank knows nothing about this race. Andrew Romanoff is not favored by the Washington Insiders or Wall Street. He has shown he is favored by the people of Colorado with the huge victory at the State Assembly. Colorado will be very proud to have him as our Senator for a very long time.
