Treachery on the Springs City Council!

COLORADO SPRINGS- I have to admit dropping my guard on the TABOR issue yesterday after 5 out of 4 council members pledged on Monday to vote in favor of putting reform on the November ballot. Private citizens who testified before the council went home satisfied that the city had heeded their words. No such luck. On Tuesday when the official vote was taken, two of the members changed their vote to NO. Council woman Jan Martin and Mayor Lionel Rivera decided to reverse what they’d told the public they’d do.

I was most surprised to see Mayor Rivera presiding with his usual pomp. Alive and well. From local editorials I got the distinct impression the disgraced mayor was no longer even showing his face. Apparently being caught serving moneyed interests, does not shame our local bureaucrats. They’re in the pocket of developers, they know it and we know it. Putting it in print doesn’t inform anyone I guess.
