Re: “Mayor calls for downtown renaissance

There goes the Mayor again, saying he is all over job creation yet does not show up to the ground breaking of the largest public project the City of Colorado Springs has ever seen. He makes our city look like such a dysfunctional mess!

Re: “UPDATE: Dougan's gotta go, opponent says

Cindy,

Just to clarify: this one statement made in your video (in the middle of an election, in which he wants to get his people elected to city council) does not negate the documented secret meetings he has participated in to sell or lease the electric generation portion of CSU. People have gone on record to say that behind closed doors he has wants to pull cash from the utility department to fund the city's short fall in revenue, and has backers for his strong mayor campaign that are all developers that would benefit greatly from the sale or lease of the utilities. So his truth in your video seems to differ from his documented truth since he has been in office. Can anyone say political pressure?

Re: “How city attorney Chris Melcher can tip the scales of power toward the mayor, while still representing Council

Sorry Bill incorrect 2nd link. Our mayor has apparently upset more than one group of volunteers since he has been in office. Lol.

Bill,

I agree that it would be a very difficult task however, I think our Mayor is crazy enough to try and pull it off behind all of our backs. Pam wrote the following article where he has had closed door meetings with Excel energy regarding the sale or lease of our utilities last year and then fliped on the subject saying he has not intrest in the matter .

Then there was a run in with storm water vounteers were told by the mayor their services were not needed, because money for storm water would be coming from the utilities budget.

Again how can he say that, if he is suppose to have no say over the utilities? This is what concerns me.
