Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Mayor Suther's was testy and almost seemed to be yelling at the audience while he blamed Bruce for pot holes and rain water. Wasn't it BACH and a most conservative Council that signed off on a Delivery system that required a revenue stream? Yes it was. Wasn't it BACH that screwed around with PPRTA so the City didn't receive the money it had in the past for pot holes - Yes it was.

Stop blaming Tabor for poorly worded ballot measures that do not ensure that once approved would allow increases without voter approval. The lady for d11 was not well voiced on several items.

Vote NO all around!

Are you kidding? You don't know much about the Secret Service. Do a Youtube search for "Secret Service fake arms" and watch the video. Yes, the agents walking along with Trump and his family have fake arms in their jacket. Why? Because each has one real arm exposed and one real arm under their long coat. And what are they holding under their long coats? Short rifles.

Ballots are out. Points pro and con have been made in various venues. Is it your opinion the stormwater measure 2A will pass or fail? Thank you.

Re: “Local health care activists face charges despite Sen. Cory Gardner’s apparent request to dismiss

That CAN group sure was 'ready to be arrested'. They went to martyr themselves and been bragging about being arrested ever since. They want to be called heroes. Did they not tell Nat they want to go to trial, which is their right, because of hidden evidence? One of them paid the ticket took a year on probation. They were bragging about being arrested. One person who was on probation from the getting a ticket for the 'sit stand' protest didn't join them for that reason. Sorry Debra that the other women didn't tell you they were out to get arrested because they brag and brag and brag about it. I'm still not sure how getting a ticket is being called being arrested. You were all free to go once outside the building.

That CAN page came down fast with all the conversations about getting arrested and collecting money for the 'COS 4'. The organizers since figured they are gun toting socialists and had to re-brand because they aren't 'leftists'.

Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Ms Cathey

Jill Gaebler chose to run for office and become an elected offcial giving the people a council of three members who appear to be able to understand and grasp numbers and six who appear continually perplexed by them.

The three who appear to have the ability to read their packets and understand the information therin are opposed to 2A.

As an elected official, the comments made verbally or in print by Jill Gaebler are fair game to be refereneced as Mrs. Carno. The statement below appears to be an accurate reprint of what Jill Gaebler actually said.

"City Council member Jill Gaebler says nobody should get a pass, and I agree with Gaebler."

This statement has been attributed to Mrs. Gaebler in different press organs and appears to be a true version of what she stated.

How is it 'less than truthful' on the part of Mrs. Carno to quote accurately what was stated or to reference Gaebler?

She said it. She owns it.

What might benefit the process is for Mrs. Gaebler to engage her brain before putting her mouth in gear. And rather than run for public office, consider becoming a door greeter at Walmart or something less demanding of critical thinking skills.
