Re: “City reins in its sales tax revenue forecast

How many major national firms have moved to Reno, bringing in high paying jobs during the term of Hillary Schieve and how many major national firms have moved to Colorado Springs, bringing in high paying jobs during the term of John Suthers?

A 'thriving economy' is one that features revenues moving up and to the right - not turning flat. Zubeck is the only reporter in town noticing real numbers? Or perhaps the only one to report them?

Re: “City reins in its sales tax revenue forecast

Actually, if after sitting through "Twinkie Time at the Broadmoor with John" - one were to go home and do some casual 'Googling' one might find that the slowest growth rate in per capita income, dating back to Mary Lou Makepeace's time in office - - - has been during the Suthers administration. For comparison:

$68,027.00 for Boulder
$59,660.00 for Denver
$54,615.00 for Omaha
$50,539.00 for Fort Collins
$47,729.00 for Huntsville
$46,529.00 for Colo Spgs

It's all about creating REVENUE - but you are doing one hell of a job with lawsuits, John.

Re: “City reins in its sales tax revenue forecast

"Rather, Suthers labeled the local economy as booming, and hailed a thriving job market, citing the $77,000 annual median salary for posted jobs in the region. "

Please NOTE: $77,000 is the number for 'Posted Jobs' - not the actual real income per capita.

Have you ever gone to your bank and tried to deposit money you hope to make? And will the bank accept only the actual real money you actually have available for deposit?

John, relax Dude - you will get re-elected as Vice Mayor when your turn comes up without putting out Fluff Numbers!

The ACTUAL Per Capita Personal Income in Colorado Springs, CO (MSA) is only $46.529 for 2017 according to numbers last adjusted 15 Nov 2018 by the Federal Government.

Re: “Council adopts RV parking ban

O.W.E.

Ordinances Without Enforcement.

1. How many 'Ordinances Per Capita' does Colorado Springs have relative to cities of comparable size?
2. How many 'Ordnances' does the city have that are not enforced?

Curly stated once he had the shelter beds in November, he would begin moving the homeless campers off public property,trails, bike paths and along the creeks. Did not say he was going to move them into the Police Center's back yard! The homeless are running the table.

Re: “Colorado Women roared in the midterm elections

What is truly disgusting is the plethora of local phony christians spewing out hatred for a new governor because he is gay - - or for any number of issues of hate mongering due to race or beliefs that differ from those who belong to the local 'hustle jesus for money and profit groups' such as Focus on the Family and the Anschutz funded hate groups as the one run by local Will Perkins that was the Amendment 2 campaign through Colorado for Family Values.

Great values for children to learn!
