Read an article that The COS EDC invited three leading U.S. senators regarding defense spending and possible spending reductions.
UCCS Chancellor Pam Shockley-Zalabak welcomed Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., members of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee, and other elected officials including Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado Springs, and staff from the offices of Sen. Michael Bennet and Sen. Mark Udall. They primarily spoke about “sequestration,” which refers to the $1 trillion in cuts the Pentagon is required to make over the next decade under the Budget Control Act of 2011. The bill was part of a bipartisan attempt to balance the federal budget.
With such an important issue facing Colorado Springs, that could have devastating consequences on our City, where was your fine Mayor Steve Bach?
Why arent you all over Mayor Bach? Has everyone over at this paper forgotten the reporting Indy did about Steve Bach's allegations of abusing his ex wives. That he's had financial problems with his family and past businesses. That the City employees are terrified of him because hes axed any one who questions him. He's no Bob Isaac. The public fighting with City Council, County officials, Urban Renewal, etc. is embarrassing for our community and a sign of poor leadership.
Of 9 Council members, Steve Bach only gets along with 2 of them? That tells me there is more a problem with him then Council. If Bach is supporting the two clueless flip floppers on Council, Leigh and Dougan, for re-election, that says it all. Council speaks for the people, not a developer out to improve things for his cronies.
Under Bach's administration, the media has reported exorbitant salaries, hundreds of thousands of dollars to his personal lawyer, and now almost a hundred grand to the ex fire chief who doesnt even work for the City any longer?! Bach is a dictator ripping us all off and you keep praising him week after week? Whats wrong with your reporting Indy? You used to be a credible news source now your reporters are on the list as just more of Mayor Bach's puppets. Im going back to reading the Post.
