Re: “Colorado Women roared in the midterm elections

Yay for Jena Griswold, Secretary of State, she s like a breath of fresh air. Rather then sending Colo voters data to the Pussy-Grabber in chief, like her opponent did, she will safeguard it here in Colorado and use it to improve voter access. So proud of this dynamic young woman! And proud of the Colorado voters who elected her.
And for those females who think its important to vote against their own sex, even brag about their ignorance, I feel sorry for you that you dont recognize your own interests withou a male giving you his permission. Thats sad......

Re: “Pikes Peak Cog Railway, not subject to outside scrutiny, faces allegations of safety problems

Nothing surprises me about the Broadmoor...... they are stone-cold focused on making huge profits at public expense, by using public infrastructure, not paying their fair share, taking over park land and city neighborhoods. Under The ownership of Phil Anschutz, the Broadmoor is just another money-grubbing Corporation, and with their wealth, they have total control over city and county governments. No elected official will stand up to them, so they always get what they want. Its depressing! I wont patronize the Broadmoor anymore due to their business practices. Ignoring customer safety on the Cog? That is just par for the course.....

Re: “Chris Isaak, Black P and Leftover Salmon book Springs dates

I would love to see Leftover Salmon, but at the Broadmoor? Oh no, no, no, cannot attend events there or patronize the Broadmoor in any way, they are destroying Colorado Springs with their greedy ways......

Re: “The Indy’s 2018 election endorsement cheat sheet

Indy got it wrong on Sec of State. Vote Jena Griswold, she will continue and improve Colorados progressive election system, that was designed and approved by the Democratic-controlled legislature several years ago. This is why we have mail ballots, same day registration, and vote centers, thanks to Democratic leaders. Inactive voters are not automatically removed the way they were before the new law passed.
Griswolds Opponent, Wayne Williams, fought this bill every step of the way when he was the Clerk and Recorder in El Paso County. He wants to continue to pull the same deceptive voter suppression tactics that Republicans use everywhere to get their candidates in. Williams was one of the few Secs of State nationwide who agreed to send COs voter data to DC to be examined by Trumps sham voter commission which has since been disbanded. Close to 1,000 CO voters cancelled their registration rather than have their data turned over to that nut-case Kobach, now running for Gov. In Kansas.
Williams is a corrupt, career politician who should be ejected from public service ASAP! No more Republican dirty tricks. Cant imagine how the Indy got it so wrong.....

Re: “Loopr and High End Transportation stand out when it comes to cannabis friendly transportation

Leave it to the government to try to kill a good thing...... what harm are they causing by providing a space for cannabis consumption? That is a huge oversight in COs legalization experiment plenty Of legal weed but no legal place to consume. Great article!

Re: “Council President Richard Skorman accused of citing his position at accident scene

Stop it, people! Richard Skorman is a kind and ethical man, we need more like him. Hes a role model for what a real leader looks like! Im sure he was trying to help a friend, something that we all should do more of. Stop trying to crucify a good man, just because you dont agree with his political perspective...... soldier on, Richard, thanks for all you do!

Re: “Reader: It's time to push back

Its silly to blame the ACLU for the homeless problems in our community. All they are saying is that laws that criminalize homelessness are not a solution. For what it costs tax payers to incarcerate homeless people for the crimes they commit, say like sleeping in a park overnight, the community could build plenty of affordable housing units. Its just that city and county governments dont want to address or spend money on affordable housing; thus, our current situation exists. Its a lot easier to blame people for their homeless state and to pass laws criminalizing homelessness than it is to step up and provide leadership on housing. The ACLU is trying to push governments to take the harder route, and that is what is needed to make a dent in the homeless problem. I mean, the City for Champions raised how many millions to build an Olympic Museum but not one dime for affordable housing to accommodate the poor people displaced by Urban Renewal? We bring this on ourselves and it is our leaders who are failing us, not the ACLU or homeless people themselves.
