Re: “Nicoletta, Jaray running for Manitou mayor

I have lived in Manitou and the Pikes peak region for 42 years, never has Manitou suffered by a totally incompetent Mayor as it has with Nicole Nicoletta. This woman has proven to us all :
a .she doesn't care about the public process, will bully citizens at council meetings and would rather NOT MEET WITH CITIZEN GROUPS(denied meeting with large groups 3x before using the POLICE to help her CUT DOWN TREES on Canon Avenue- Nicole is a RUDE BULLY !!
b. has no idea what living in a "Historical" town means. Consistently jams through useless construction projects with no advance warning's to huge "material change of appearance" for the town
c. Nicole has been a horrible leader with consistently flawed decisions on a wide variety of Manitou topics such as : parking : Wrapping Soda Springs park in steel to keep the homeless(and everybody else) out of the park while sponsoring a food bank 300 yards down the street for the homeless; Zero Tolerance program ; Cutting of trees needlessly on Canon Avenue : Consistently lying to the public - Nicoletta and her administration have graduated from the Kelly Anne Conway school of alternative facts!
d. In two council meetings alone Nicoletta WASTED $800,000.00 ofcitizens funds.... Manitou is a small town with a modest budget. Someone whom has been on food stamps recently SHOULD NOT BE ANYWHERE NEAR A $12million budget ! she has no experience .
e. All of Nicoletta's combined policies have damaged the reputation of Manitou Springs, she does not care about the voting locals at all. SHE MUST BE REMOVED !!

Re: “Racketeering case against Pueblo weed growers (partially) revived by federal court

"The Reilly's who don't actually live in Pueblo " , this is a Trumped up case, they don't live there ....complain about the smell , you mean they can smell anything above the horse poop. Ah an out of state special interest group is promoting the case.....and I'll bet they own stock in an Opioid manufacturer !

Re: “City EPA lawsuit costs on the rise

RAISE THE DEVELOPERS IMPACT FEES ! Since the City Council and County Commissioners have been on the POCKETS of developers for over 50 years, developers impact fees are 70% LESS than the average of the front range cities. If someone with courage raised them to equal the other front range cities that would be an increase of $15k-$20k/residence. More than enough to pay for all stormwater issues (CAUSED BY DEVELOPMENT ONLY) and improve the roads to the better standard they used to adhere by. But you can bet Suthers will stay in the pockets of the developers and billionaires in town and screw the general population .... that's his pattern!!

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

Suthers is a whore to a bully of a billionaire ignoring the thousands of citizens whom put him in office. Anshutz is a bully, wants Rosemont reservoir to water his golf courses. We can only speculate Suthers was offered a higher paying job in the Anshutz empire to screw the public on the Strawberry Fields property and the process. Do we really need "Johnny come lately " billionaires screwing over Colorado Springs with "Colorado Springs Forward" a despicable dark money PAC and putting our Mayor on puppet strings. Suthers you whore ..... stop having dinners with a bully of a billionaire and represent us !

Re: “Reader: Who cares how much taxes Trump paid!

We care Jack. We have a liar in chief , a twit who twitters , and you say "fix my country" , he is destroying it bit by bit. Looks like we are headed for another useless unneeded war. About to give his family and cabinet members a $9billion dollar tax break just on the death tax alone. All he has done is promote family interests/businesses since he's been in. Jack you are a Trump supporter = LOSER !!
