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.
Andrew Romanoff is the only candidate not taking special interest money. He doesn't have to answer to any one but the voters.
Pastor Ted I am happy you are back. You have made a tremendous conversion. After years of having distain toward you I know that you have changed and are a good person. Please come to the Democratic Party. You can be the voice in the local party. As a tolerate, conservative, Environmentalist. You will be welcomed. I truly hope you run for mayor.
