Did he really write and publish a book with city funds? Or in his time off with personal money?

Are all the spots taken for this Saturday? I'm organizing the Colorado Springs leg of a Cultural Tour of Tibetan Monks coming to town Sept. 9 - 14th. Would like to know if this might be a good way to get the word out about their events (sand mandala, meditation, talks, cultural pageant, prayer stone workshop)?
I heard something I am totally confused about. The people can vote on item 1 (yes or no on the recall) AND/OR item 2 (candidate). Why on earth would you be able to vote for a person if you were not voting for the recall? If you voted "no" in the recall, why would you vote for a candidate? So do those votes actually count? For example, I vote "NO" on the recall but vote "Jan Brooks" on the candidate, would the candidate's vote count? Even though I am voting against the recall? This gets more confusing to me every day.
