Re: “VRBO rental ended in a brutal assault, plus allegations of racism and home invasion. Why isn't the DA pressing charges?

I agree with Victoria, except as soon as the renters found out they were in the wrong house, they should have been backing out the door. Both parties could have handled it better.

Re: “Doug Lamborn promises he'll appeal in effort to get onto primary ballot

The system worked, but I do wonder about the integrity of the District Court because it seemed to me, at least the way the facts were presented in various newspaper articles, is the District Court was very selective in only examining the qualifications of just one circulator. That circulator was found to not be a resident of Colorado and his 50 or so signatures were declared invalid. But Lamborn still had over 1100 signatures, so he remained on the ballot. Then when the attorneys filed their appeal to the Supreme Court, I read they stated they would have the Supreme Court look "at the other circulators". And the qualifications of all circulators was then made public, and it was kind of obvious which one was not a resident of Colorado with his 269 signatures. And indeed, the Supreme Court found him not to be a resident and declared his 269 signatures to be invalid. The District Court did not do their job for whatever reason.

Does it make you wonder about the integrity of the District Court that first found for Lamborn?

Re: “D-11 board refers ballot measure to improve Colorado Springs schools

I do not live in District 11. In the breakdown, $15.25M is earmarked per year to attract and retain great teachers. What exactly does this mean? Boondoggle recruiting trips for administrators? And exactly how will be the money be used to retain great teachers? Bonuses? Are bonuses allowed per union agreement? Nowhere is a pay raise for teachers mentioned, but I am sure administrators will get their pay raised. And a full time counselor in each and every school? Another bureaucrat twiddling their fingers all day. Start cutting administrative positions. Start eliminating sports programs, especially at the elementary and middle school levels. The funds for maintenance work seem justified.

Re: “Lamborn does not qualify for the ballot, state supreme court rules

In reality, not many Democrats are going to change their party registration to vote in the Republican primary no matter how much they hate Lamborn. In order to knock Lamborn out at the primary, Hill and Glenn need to reach out to, and even educate, unaffiliated voters (i.e., independents) that they are allowed to vote in the Republican primary this year. Unaffiliated voters are the largest voting block in El Paso County.

Re: “PPCC Black Student Union to host community discussion

The use of the term "people of color" by blacks is hypocritical. They use it to appear all inclusive, but in their reality "people of color" means JUST black people.

Re: “Lamborn does not qualify for the ballot, state supreme court rules

Lamborn only answers to the Koch brothers and/or his sponsors. Everyone else he ignores when they contact his office.

In 2012, El Paso County supported the initiative for recreational MJ, yet only this year, Lamborn went on record supporting Sessions in his attempt to place more emphasis on enforcement of drug laws. I do not need lecture on federal versus state law, but you would hope our Congressional representative would actually be representing his constituents in DC, instead of his sponsors' agenda.
