Re: “Noted: Bruce caught trespassing

No quorum, no meeting ???

I read with surprise in this morning's Indy, a column report about the El Paso County Board of Commissioners not having a quorum, which somehow interpreted that the commissioners were taking the day off by cancelling our regular board meeting. I'd like to take this opportunity to set the record straight.

What the article failed to acknowledge is that we were doing important public business by attending another important meeting outside of Denver for Colorado Counties Inc., the state organization which represents counties throughout Colorado. Some of the Front Range counties in attendance included Jefferson, Larimer, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Weld, Gilpin, Douglas and El Paso. In addition, the issues we discussed included public health workshops, policies in transportation, health and human services, local government, public safety and others.

Lest the article mislead the public to be under the impression that taxpayer dollars were wasted, I would assure El Paso County taxpayers that we were discussing important state legislation, some recently mandated by state statute changes this year and in addition, possible legislation being considered for the 2010 state government legislative session. All of which have an impact on county services and the folks who live within El Paso County.

As the Indy staff is aware, I pride myself on being available to the media and had I received a call from the newspaper, would have been pleased to discuss our absence and the reasons behind the meeting cancellation. Your El Paso County commissioners do not serve the public best by sitting behind a desk in our office, instead, we should be working on community issues, visiting with citizens at town hall meetings, attending policy sessions with fellow county commissioners to assure good and appropriate legislation and taking an active role in government policy among others.

I am disappointed that the Indy portrayed this as taking our community responsibilities lightly and would encourage them to call a commissioner for verification rather than to assume. As always, I'm standing by ready to take a call.

Re: “Noted: Few voting as election nears end

In reference to Article on this page-Rx discounts made available: El Paso County government will be offering a similar Rx discount drug card to residents within the entire county. Offered through National Association of Counties (NACo)cards will have no enrollment fee and no paperwork to fill out. Commissioners will approve the contract next week and cards will be distributed throughout the county and can also be used within the eight municipalities and unincorporated areas. El Paso County will have the new NACo Rx cards available by June. More to follow soon... Sallie Clark, El Paso County Commissioner
