Re: “Ed Jones might run; recall people paid handsomely

My uncle used to collect signatures. He'd get a different amount of money for signatures for different kinds of petitions. So, paying someone to collect signatures is normal. Also, the signatures are checked by gov, city clerks in this case, to make sure they qualify (right jurisdiction, etc.). In this case, paying 6 bucks a signature must've really encouraged the collectors to push hard.

Re: “Help for underserved

Nice to see this kind of service in the Springs.

Re: “Pride Fest organizer faces financial struggle, major changes

It'd be nice if the city set up funds for helping non-profits like these rather than spending money on severance packages, high salaries, and cash bonuses for executives in city administration.

Re: “City spends big on separation; new form of government brings new costs

Don't forget that Mayor Bach also gave cash bonuses, $25,000 each, to Melcher and Newman (in addition to their salary pay). Now that I consider the other amounts of money this article highlights spent due to council V. mayor infighting; I realize that there is a tremendous amount of public money being wasted that could have been used in other ways to help the city: infrastructure at parks, trails, recreation programs, public events, and more. Kudos to the Independent putting out stories that point out these issues in our local government.
