Re: “Suthers kicks off Colorado Springs stormwater ballot measure campaign

Voting NO. When eight out of every ten citizens asked to vote on the Broadmoor Land Swap and it didn't suit the mayor's agenda, he said "I won't have a vote if I don't have to." He paid for those misguided few words with the April roust election. And he's going to pay for it again with storm water. Payback is a bitch.

Re: “Millions for I-25 widening riding on November election

Instead of continually chasing the inadequacy of I-25, why not take a lesson from Denver and build the equivalent of C-470? Make it, as Denver did, a toll road and let it pay for itself.

Re: “Colorado Municipal League sides with city in Strawberry Fields lawsuit

Given that the city invited CML to join the case, are the citizens of Colorado Springs paying the municipal league's attorneys?

Re: “Stratton Open Space fire mitigation delayed after residents object to extreme treatment

Your comment, like the mitigation, goes too far. When the person in charge admits that the crews "went a little crazy" you are hardly on solid legal ground when you defend their actions.

Re: “Reader: Suthers' quote is a staggering piece of irony

The task at hand is simply to make sure that Mr. Suthers does not serve a second term. The City of Colorado Springs deserves much better.

Re: “Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Foundation plans overhaul of Norris-Penrose Event Center

Recognizing that not everything in the world is somehow connected to The Broadmoor Land Swap of 2016, one cannot help but see an interesting thread buried in this article. If the right of first refusal (a title restriction) can be undone in this case, what does that say about the highly-touted, iron-clad right-of-first-refusal which was placed on Strawberry Fields?
The inclusion of that title restriction was used by both the city and the Broadmoor to reassure the public and help sell
their deal. Just sayin' .........
