Re: “Neither Bach nor Skorman stands out in mayoral debate

@TBFR enough is enough. Every single story on this website you have spammed with your hateful rhetoric towards Skorman, and your untruthful insistence that Bach will be a "fresh start" for city hall. Bach is nothing of the sort - he is a candidate hand chosen by the existing power players in the city to represent their interests. You cite the Police Protective Association as being a "special interest" donating $30,000 to Skorman's campaign, but conveniently leave out the fact that the Loos have donated well over $20,000 to Bach's campaign alone. Furthermore, over 50% of Bach's donations have come from individuals or organizations directly involved in the real estate development industry. Personally, I'd rather have our police officer's "special interests" be represented over the interests of the people whose influence has led to our city's current hardships...

Furthermore, just today Mr. Hazelhurst posted a story about a $200/plate fundraiser Bach is hosting at the Broadmoor, and the invitation literally cites a "whose who of" colorado springs power players. Skorman's campaign has received donations from over 1600 individuals, most of which are under $200, yet he has still out-raised Bach by a considerable sum! (speaking of which, Mr. Hazelhurst, why hasn't the incredible outpouring of grassroots support for Skorman been the subject of one of your blogs? I think the fact that a comparison between Skorman's 40+ page filing last period filled with small donors and Bach's 20-some page filing filled with $500 and $1000 contributions might be an interesting topic)

Maybe I shouldn't be scolding you. If you hadn't posted so many inflammatory comments about Skorman I probably would not have been motivated to try to verify your claims in order to solidify my support for Bach (yes, I voted for him in the first election). Thanks to you, I'm now a solid Skorman supporter.

TBFR, sometimes, the truth hurts.
