Re: “Secret meetings to continue about Memorial

At the hospital we have a culture of "trusted colleagues" and it works because we work together and know each other. I don't work with or know any of the people on the task force or on council making it very hard to just "trust them" to do the right thing, especially when it doesn't seem that what I think is the right thing and what they think is the right thing are so far apart. When will this town accept the fact that perception matters?

Re: “Sunshine laws? No, thanks.

If the above article has even a smidgen of truth to it about the mayor's statements, that is all you need to know about why Memorial needs to get out from under the city government. The third task force in 2 years and still no decisions. The citizens and Memorial deserve better than this.

Re: “You (really) can't drive!

I'm curious why you didn't mention that in the survey Colorado drivers did pretty well? Averaging a score of 82%, ranking third in the nation isn't too shabby. I drive for a living and would not have guessed we'd rank that high, but I'm glad to see we did.

Re: “House Republicans shoot down bill for immigrant kids

Stubborn and short-sighted..while I expect more, I don't think I'll ever get it.

Re: “State: Clerk's election work was just fine

Hi -Five to Clerk Young, her staff and all the election judges and observers. Seldom is anything perfect, but I'll take legal and with integrity any day. Hopefully this report will allow the Clerk and Staff to get on with their business and everyone will accept that due diligence was done.

Re: “Gay tolerance divides Skorman, Bach in mayoral debate

@TBFR - Gays in the city will be a bigger topic than anyone imagined once the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell is certified. Serving gay military members and their families will live and work here and expect to be treated just as their non-gay counterparts. Just for a minute suppose that the non-gay military members show support for their gay buddies by keeping those military dollars on post/base because the city is too uptight to welcome them? Wouldn't that be a job killer? Any candidate who doesn't recognize that makes me question what else they don't know.

Re: “Skorman, Bach offer differing messages to Rotarians

While government can certainly benefit from some sound business practices, it is not a business. Government also has to take into account the humans it is meant to serve and I just don't get that concern for the citizens vibe from Mr. Bach. His service to the community through business and non-profits seems to suit his personality/philosophy much better.
