Re: “Little Nepal

Food was marginal at best, there was very little curry flavor in their curry. We tried it once, and won't be back.

Re: “We're already poor, folks

I would beg to differ Michael. I do think many of the people of this city are as ignorant as government. How many incumbents have been elected over and over and over again.

"Lionel Rivera was first elected to an at-large city council seat in April 1997 and re-elected again in April 1999. In April 2001, he was elected to serve as vice mayor for a two-year term. In April 2003, he was elected mayor and was re-elected to his second term as mayor in 2007."

"He was first elected to serve the last two years of the vacated District 2 council seat in 1991. He was elected to an at-large council seat in April 2003 and was re-elected in 2007. In 2005, he was elected vice mayor."

"Scott Hente was elected to the Colorado Springs City Council representing District 1, the northwest quadrant of the city, in April 2003. He was re-elected to serve a four-year term in April 2005 and again in April 2009."

"Darryl Glenn was appointed to the Colorado Springs City Council representing District 2, the northeast quadrant of the city, in June 2003. He was then elected to serve a four-year term in April 2005 and was re-elected in April 2009."

"Bernie Herpin Jr. was originally appointed to an at-large council seat in March 2006 to complete the term of a member who resigned. He was elected to a full term in April 2009 as the representative of District 4, the southeast quadrant of the city."

"Tom Gallagher was elected to an at-large council seat in April 2003 and re-elected in 2007."

"Randy Purvis was elected to an at-large council seat in April 1987 and was re-elected to a second term in April 1991 and a third term in April 1995. After sitting out due to term limitations, in April 2003, Mr. Purvis was elected to an at-large council seat. He was re-elected again in April 2007."

As you can see only Jan Martin and Sean Paige are newly elected or appointed members. So yes the citizens of this city are ignorant or just plain stupid for keeping the same leadership in play for the better part of a decade.
