Chet, Thank you for spending time and doing the research to understand the issues and the difficult job our DHS workers do everyday. Maybe someday, the efforts to prevent child abuse will be successful and we won't need government intervention.
I agree with El Paso County Sheriff Maketa and these City Councilmembers in requesting an unbiased review of the Waldo Canyon Fire. An opportunity to better prepare for future disasters will ultimately benefit our community and our citizens. Kudos to the Sheriff and Councilmembers Hente, Martin and Czelatdko for supporting an independent assessment. -Commissioner Sallie Clark
I appreciated participating in both the commissioner district 3 candidate survey from Citizens Project and the Stargazers forum sponsored by the Indy and CP. As one of several Republicans who returned the questions posed by CP, I feel it's important to reach out to all constituents and have always held that philosophy throughout my years of public service. Thanks to Kristy Milligan for providing the opportunity to share my views and project priorities to get things done in El Paso County. -Sallie Clark www.ElectClark.com
Exactly why we need to be proactive in our community about stormwater and flooding issues. The County Commissioners heard an interesting presentation on Thursday discussing the problem, the needs and some potential opportunities to address.
I sincerely hope that the Mayor and City Council seriously consider County Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams' proposal to integrate city clerk functions, especially the elections department. El Paso County has direct access to the Secretary of State and voter records, the necessary verification equipment, etc. Especially when times are tough, it's important to look for potential consolidation of local services like this. As an El Paso County Commissioner, I am supportive of this collaboration and thank the Clerk for suggesting it.
Lisa Czelatdko is the best candidate to represent District 3. Along with the endorsement of former councilmember for district 3, Jerry Heimlicher, and a host of community leaders, she's shown a personal interest in our "local" issues. She's articulate, has a grasp of the city's inner workings and is extremely hard working, something we constituents in Colorado Springs need. Lisa has been involved with non-profits and serves as a volunteer on many committees including the Council of Governments and Historic Preservation Board. A fresh face and new perspective is just what our city requires to put us on the right path to economic vitality. -Sallie Clark, El Paso County Commissioner District 3. www.ElectLisaC.com
Lisa Czelatdko (Lisa C for District 3): Former District 3 Councilmember Jerry Heimlicher and I have heartily endorsed Lisa because she offers a fresh new voice for District 3 and she has a commitment to the district and our community. We respectfully disagree with your opinion in the District 3 race. While her opponent is a former state legislator and former government employee, he has also shown a lack of understanding of city issues and in particular, the future of our water availability and the importance of the Southern Delivery System. Lisa has worked for years by readying herself in the "local" arena and has demonstrated an understanding of our neighborhoods and city government by her active participation. It's important for District 3 to have a specific voice on issues, a perspective that both Jerry Heimlicher and I shared when we represented the district on city council and a district in which I live. I'm proud to support Lisa Czelatdko for City Council District 3 and I would ask others to join us and many other community leaders in our endorsement by voting for Lisa C. www.ElectLisaC.com -Sallie Clark, El Paso County Commissioner District 3
