Re: “Douglas Bruce files suit against El Paso County over TABOR

Douglas Bruce is a hero. I'm proud to stand and support a man who has my personal best interests at heart. I'm appalled, ashamed, that my city has continued to keep its greedy paws on MY money since 2013! That's FOUR YEARS that MY MONEY could've been working for ME and not some bureaucrat in a fancy office downtown.

If it wasn't for this corrupt, filthy, shameful government "elected" by the people, that $3.37 could be worth nearly $10 today, and instead of eating a sandwich for lunch this afternoon, I would be eating a BURGER.

Re: “Not many choose to donate their land to the city of Colorado Springs

Instead of hoping for the donation why didnt the city negotiate for the land - make that part of the deal since the developer is gaining so much.

Re: “Colorado Springs Utilities sees two of six top managers depart. Is the CEO next?

A multi-billion dollar organization and no succession plan? This should be an automatic requirement. Why is the city going outside the organization to hire people for vacant positions? Arent there existing employees in the #2 and #3 and #4 positions good enough to move up? If not, why not? Are not employees groomed for advancement?

Re: “Douglas Bruce files suit against El Paso County over TABOR

The man who authored TABOR says El Paso County has violated TABOR. That has to count for something. As the possible next Sheriff of El Paso County, I can't go a single day without hearing some controversy surrounding the Public Safety Tax (PST). My Committee is studying ways we can simply undo the PST disaster and still function effectively. We, the taxpayers, need yet another lawsuit against the county involving the Sheriff's Office like a hole in the head. Read my post on this here: https://angley4sheriff.org/2018/01/03/publ…

Yet more proof that municipal corporations and their enterprises/auxiliaries are businesses, not forms of governance. When will the populace seek the education needed to know this and demand/require a true lawful form of governance?

Re: “Posada blames weed for homeless influx in Pueblo, Councilor says they don't need a shelter

@Margivj "My 22 year old son is mentally ill , an addict and living on the streets of Pueblo. There isnt a day that goes by that I dont worry about him. It is so cold there tonight. I pray he survives"

I guess the best question is... why? Why is he living on the streets? You won't let him stay with you? You just expect him to be a burden on the rest of society? That's pretty sad.

Re: “Not many choose to donate their land to the city of Colorado Springs

@apathetic.... I'm looking over the list of donated land and I'm guessing you are not in that list.
