This is the third time this group has formed, each time producing little more than a new FaceBook page with each attempt. But at least they are trying.
Mr. Snider is perpetually confused at what is going on with council.
Is the public willing to make an investment in the future and fund these capital improvement and storm water needs? Will local voters pass or turn down a city-county wide one cent sales tax increase should this be the chosen instrument to place on a November 2014 ballot?
Sallie Clark and Amy Lathen made a serious attempt to increase their terms in office from two 4-year terms to three 4-year terms. The voters cut them off at the pass on this measure and forced them to remain at just two 4-year terms.
City Council has nothing to do with the county policies. The city is a home-rule municipality - the county is nothing more than an administrative arm of state government.
Ms. Zubeck, as usual, did an outstanding job from within the Indy, as did the Business Journal, on reporting the maneuvering that took place with the Clark-Lathen attempt to increase their time in office.
Should all El Paso County elected officials, other than the coroner, be subject to the same two term limits as are the county commissioners and should there be a four year period between the time an elected official leaves one office and runs for another elected position?
Yes. Take care of business and all else falls into place.
Time for 'monkey business' to come to an end!
Fortunately, there is at last - - a substantial, qualified, stable candidate running for the Dist 5 seat for the board of county commissioners.
Should all El Paso county elected officials, exclusive of the coroner be limited to two terms as are the county commissioners? And: should there be a four year period before an El Paso county elected officials can serve in another county elected position?
