Re: “Colorado Springs' 2C road measure takes some heat

If the tentative measure to ask voters to approve a storm water fee makes it to the ballot, how large is that pool of voters who view 2C as being less efficient than it could be - - and more important, how large is that pool within the 'Marijuana Supporters' who say they will not vote for another fee or tax without recreational marijuana being allowed? And is that pool large enough to defeat the storm water fee? Please consider taking our grass roots poll and weigh in. Thank you.…

Re: “A message to city voters: Rise above the negativity

" - - -we could be looking at turnouts as low as 15 percent in District 4 and only in the 35 percent range for the other closely contested district races."

On the date Mr. Routon posted this article ( 6 days from the election) the overall rate of return of ballots (voter turnout) was at 18.47%.

What do you feel is the impact of negative advertising on local elections? A five minute grass roots survey. You can also check the current voter turnout for your city council district - Thank you.…

Re: “Opposition researcher looking into Council race

And Mr. Gentry,

Can you PM me with the full contact details on Mr. Falili that you have redacted in your post?

I am quite sure with a minor amount of research, there will be a local connection.

Re: “Opposition researcher looking into Council race

A "Failing" Campaign for The CSF/Developer Candidates: Looks realistic. It is not dollars that win elections. It is what is marked down on the ballot. Looking back through the financiasl an interesting thing is observable:

- - - The Big Money candidates of Iverson-Fowler-Hendrix-Basham all have big donations from a very limited number of donors. HBA-CSF-Nor'wood-Lane-LaPlata-Johnson, etc. But those candidates have a very low number of private donors. (Votes count)

The non-Big Money candidates have impressive funds - but from many more donors - if votes count - then it looks as if CSF may have cause to be concerned.

Gaebler (wide public support) About 230 private donations. -0- Big Money donations.

Iverson has only 22 private donations. 21 Big Money donations.

Skorman (wide public support) About 210 private donations. -0- Big Money donations.

Hendrix has only 20 private donations yet has 16 Big Money donations.

Fowler has only 9 private donations. 14 Big Money donations.

Basham is at the bottom. 5 private donations. 13 Big Money donations.

Mrs. Collins is not big on fund-raising but she did, as you have stated earlier, beat Deborah Hendrix once - and then survived the Hendrix-led recall.

Obviously these numbers will change - but as of 8:00 pm on 10 March - that's the score.

The Take A Way: Looks as if the 'non-CSF/Builder' candidates have more wide-spread support, including the incumbents - thus more potential votes to win and the Big Money candidates will be able to go back to their day jobs on April 5th.
