Re: “Bus drivers still speaking out

Thank You Nasya,
I will contact you and get you the flyer. NO YOU ARE NOT OUT OF THE LOOP, I AM SORRY TO SAY BUT I FEEL AMERICA HAS BECOME NOT THE HOME OF THE BRAVE BUT THE HOME OF THE COMPLAICENT, WE DO NOT STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS, WE ARE AFFRIAD OF OUR GOVERMENT. WE NEED TO TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY BEFORE IT IS TO LATE!!!! WHEN I OPERATED THE BUS I TOLD PEOPLE TO GET 10 FRIENDS AND FOR THEIR FRIENDS TO GET 10 FRIENDS AND TO MEET ON THE STEPS OF CITY HALL ON A FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND DEMAND ANSWERS BEFORE OUR CUITY LEADERS LEFT FOR THE WEEKEND, BUT I NEVER SAW OR HEARD ANY BODY DO IT!!!
I was away for a few weeks in Jackson, WY, where I found a FREE PUBLIC TRANSIT SYSTEM AND UNLOCKED RESTROOMS IN THE PARKS, imagine this!!! I have since applied to work for START BUS (Jackson's transit system) and others that I see are much more progessive tahn Colorado Springs!!! I hope that some day people realize that public officials work for you, you pay thier salaries and if you don't like thier performance you can remove them from office or force them to straighten out thier act!!!!

Re: “Bus drivers still speaking out

Sorry for the typos, I was a bus operator, not a writer. And it was written in frustration from dealing with an uncaring city goverment.
Thank you to the rest of you for listening! Now we all need to make things happen. Socialism and communism occur when people don't stand up for thier rights and allow officials to slow take them away. I believe we can change the nation by starting the ball rolling here in our own backyard. The United States was created in a time when there was no mass media and look what these folks managed to accomplish. This occured again during the civil war.

Re: “City pays extra for contracted-out transit expenses

OK, it is time for the truth to come out. This council was out to rid the city of the transit workers union and the retirement system these workers had. In fact it was well over 200 transit workers that were displaced and now collecting unemployment and some are at risk of loosing thier homes to foreclosure. The city continues to spend tax dollars on fightingwitht the federal deparment of labor trying to get out of the 13C agreement that provides protections for displaced transit workers. Ask Councilmember Martin about that waste of money and I bet you wouldn't get an answer. If you ever saw the movie "Best Little Whorehouse In Texas" that is our city hall. We are paying to get screwed and if you remember the govenor it that movie you can pick you own member of our city goberment to put that hat on .
