Re: “County's Dave Rose retires after 40+ years in the information business

In case anyone is wondering - the above all relates to the time when Dave Rose was hired at the county following the dismissal under curious circumstances of the previous El Paso County Information officer - and the number of good, honest employees that were all cut loose at the same time! The stories they could tell if they were not tied to non-disclosure agreements would make a great novel and short TV series in the best sleazy soap opera vein!

But Pam is right. Dave did a good job, was straight with the press - prompt and responsive responding to a huge number of requests and I think generally admired.

Re-Elect Suthers - you got him to 2025. Worth it?

The deal brokered by a professional politician to stop the EPA legal action. That worked well.

Think back over the past 60 years of very straightforward, excellent city government.

Think back to county politicians moving into city government. Has it been worth it?

Re: “County's Dave Rose retires after 40+ years in the information business

"El Paso County's attempt to acquire yet another building, a portion of 4425 Arrowswest Drive, has been riddled with problems. And the latest round coincides with the announcement that County Attorney Bill Louis who warned commissioners it was a bad deal and advised them to get out will be leaving soon."

"Louis, who raised allegations of bribes surrounding the deal in November, said Dec. 22 that he will resign in six months and pursue private practice. His announcement came seven weeks after he called for County Administrator Jeff Greene to be placed on leave over his handling of the Arrowswest deal. Commissioners backed Greene."

Re: “County's Dave Rose retires after 40+ years in the information business

In 2005,after a new 'assistant county adminstator was hired at El Paso County - a number of dedicated, straight and honest county employees were fired to include the delightful and terribly forthright and honest Ann Ervin, Parks director Barbara Nugent, the previous assistant county adminstrator, Denny Cripps - an Army colonel and veteran of unquestioned credentials and no political shennanigans in his background - County Attorney Bill Lewis found his sterling service to the county and the public was no longer needed after crossing Jeff Greene over the Arrows West Affair - now we have your typical county professional politician in charge of the city with Greene as his water boy and when did we begin to see so many questions about 'transparency' cropping up? Coincidence or pattern? 2015?
