Re: “UPDATE: Neighbor structure steals privacy, Colorado Springs residents allege

The rest of the story: The statement by Peter Wysocki (above) was FALSE. The building was approved by his office with an illegal size and setback. The numbers on the plan submitted were wrong - falsified, in our opinion, to make them appear to code. When alerted to this, Peter Wysocki ignored us and now, after six months of trying to get him to do the right thing, is helping the homeowner bring this project to code (by some very deceptive means). I hope you all will take a look at our website, "Protect our Westide". All the details are there. Thanks! http://www.protectourwestside.com

Re: “Local health care activists face charges despite Sen. Cory Gardner’s apparent request to dismiss

Those who break the law should have to deal with the consequences of their actions. Take some responsibility and deal with it. They knew exactly what they were doing and city resources were deployed to handle it.

This is a typical progressive action... break laws + whine = injustice

Re: “Local health care activists face charges despite Sen. Cory Gardner’s apparent request to dismiss

Thanks Nat Stein for covering this. One clarification: regarding " ...many of whom had participated in a similar action at Gardners office the month prior. In that instance, they stayed until 7:30 p.m., got tired and went home. No police." We didn't go home because we were tired. Andy Merritt, Gardner's state director, met with us and gave us his business card. We felt like we had made some progress towards getting some straight answers and accountability, so we went home with Andy's card and his promise to follow up with us regarding Gardner holding a town hall. We soon discovered that the phone number on Andy's card was not his. The office claimed that this was a mistake at the printer. There was no follow up, and no way to follow up, because emails went unanswered and phone calls went to a voicemail that belonged to someone other than the person identified on the business card, and were not returned.

Re: “Utilities will fund water and sewer relocations for Olympic Museum area

A look at the handouts facilitated by your utility bill to Developers. More to come if 2A passes and the taxes ("fees") are collected on your utility bill. Vote NO on 2A.

Re: “Jenkins buys RBD downtown properties

Dear RBD; Re-read your mission because everyone who works for you will approve any variance.

That City council of progressives is so very afraid that infill won't happen. This sale is underhanded and should not be approved below assessed value. By the way - assessed value doesn't include realtor fees.

Re: “UPDATE: Felony charges dismissed against John San Agustin

"On June 14, 2017, in preparation of trial of co-defendant Terrance Maketa, Detective Kaiser said that it was definitely Chief Deputy District Attorney Gerhart who ordered Ms. Trull to be arrested and not the defendant or any of her supervisors."

Sooooo.... the question of the day.... Will we be seeing charges against Shannon Gerhart?

Re: “Nicoletta, Jaray running for Manitou mayor

While I have not agreed to all of the Mayor Nicoletta's programs and policies she has always been upfront with me and helpful when possible. As a business owner who does not live in Manitou (an unwelcome species) it is hard to be heard at local meetings with residents shouting "You don't live here and your opinion mean nothing".
I have witnessed Ken Jaray's strong-arming firsthand. In our first meeting he stood in my business and stated "If you do not go along with the residents proposal, I will do everything in my power to shut you down". I do not need this man to be in charge if that is how he treats local business owners.
Nicoletta has made some mistakes but her approach is better for everyone I assure you.

Re: “Loss of a beloved trail in Jones Park is leading to interesting proposals

It's B.S. that they are taking this trail away for a fish that was only brought to the area in the 1800s, ON THIS SAME TRAIL (which was a toll road at the time). That's completely ridiculous. Relocate the fish to their natural habitat on the Platte river and leave this area alone. It's been used for over 100 years by people for living, hiking, biking, and recreation.

Re: “Congressional District 5 race draws fourth Republican hopeful

Rhea is no different than Lamborn when it comes to women's reproductive rights. His quotes from CP Colorado Politics article on Oct 14th, 2017:

"Rhea said his judicial experience has given him unique insight into how to draft anti-abortion legislation that can escape the usual political pitfalls.

"I am concerned that we who are pro-life have grown too silent on this issue. My wife and I both have had dramatic experiences around the issue of abortion. We are passionate about that subject and it will be central to our campaign, he said."

Re: “Firefighters back stormwater measure

Surprise! Surprise! The "stormwater tax" will not be used for stormwater! Let's free up money from the general fund to "bait and switch" to firefighters and police. Interesting three out of the four City Councilmembers on the budget committee voted not to put the "tax" on the ballot. WAKE UP COLORADO SPRINGS CITIZENS! We're becoming the new California!
