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.

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

Old Philly Anschluss is pulling out all the stops to accomplish his latest land grab. He looks desperate at this point. I wonder how much it cost him to get the faceless Zoo board to sign this last minute letter?

Re: “Opponents make final pitch before City Council land swap vote

Too bad Manitou Mayor Nicoletta wasn't there to represent her long suffering constituents on Ruxton Ave.

Re: “A lot to give in Manitou

So, where was Manitou Mayor Nicoletta last night? She should have been representing her constituents on Ruxton Ave.

Re: “Sierra Club opposes city-Broadmoor land swap

It's worth noting that Colorado's premier nature photographer, John Fielder opposes this unholy land grab, as well.
