Re: “Will voters be allowed to decide on parks funding?

Perhaps we should redirect the current .1 percent TOPS sales tax from acquisition of property to maintenance of existing parks and open space.

Re: “Update: Tim Mitros leaves his city job

I come to praise Mitros, not bury him. He is one of the good guys.

Re: “Update: Tim Mitros leaves his city job

Mitros worked tirelessly during the 2013 floods. Too bad he was unable to ingratiate himself with the current regime.

Re: “Two ways Strawberry Fields swap has been forgotten already

Jill Gaebler will have my full support for reelection in April since she was one of three Councilors who had the guts to oppose the illegal land grab of 2016.

Re: “UPDATE: City tax hike study paralleled land swap debate

After witnessing the Great Land Grab of 2016, I will oppose any tax increase for Suthers' corrupt Parks Department or his sycophants at TOSC.

Re: “Legal opinion released; Zoo urges approval of land swap

Sandmarc, the Bear Creek parcel is 8.6 acres. So, the photo above is relevant. But, if you believe that's all the Broadmoor is getting in Strawberry Fields, you've been reading too many City press releases. They get all of the 189.5 acres on both sides of Old Stage Road. But don't worry, they'll be back for more.
