Re: “Lathen leaving BOCC early to head C.S. Forward

Joel, can you support the statement that CSF threatened to drag her family into the mud over the Maketa issue if she refused? I do recall the part of her being offered the chief of staff job, I don't remember that it was offered by CSF, but I wouldn't argue with you on that, but I just don't have any memory from reading the news or attending any of the candidate forums about CSF and the Maketa thing.

Re: “Lathen leaving BOCC early to head C.S. Forward

Pam, you said that Lathen could run for another term but chose not to. That is not true. When she made the motion to put the item on the ballot that would take the term limits from three back down to two she didn't include any language that would exempt herself. The only two commissioners who were exempt were the ones who ran for reelection on the same ballot that included the ballot item to reduce the number of terms back down to two...Sallie Clark and Dennis Hisey. Lathen was elected in the general election twice, in 2008 and 2012 and, as such, is term limited at the end of her current term. For somebody who writes so much about politics I am disappointed that you didn't do better research on something like this before writing it.

Re: “UPDATE: The go karts are coming ... in July

Maybe I'm just confused, but doesn't the headline say that the go-carts are coming in June and the press release says July?

Re: “SDS on track, HBA endorses county candidates, Indy wins SPJ awards, and more

Headline says... HBA endorses county candidates...am I missing something? I don't see any story about that.

Re: “Cullen makes primary ballot

Staci, you are so deceptive. Amy Lathen was the commissioner who made the motion to put the term limit issue back on the ballot. And to call it a "self-extension" is also deceptive. They didn't extend the limits to three terms by themselves. It was voted on by the people of El Paso county. I wasn't in the least bit deceived by the ballot question because I knew that the commissioners were limited to two terms when I went into the ballot box and by voting yes I was expressing my approval to have them limited to three terms if the measure passed.
