Springs Mayor Steve Bach’s downtown plans centered on real estate speculation and corruption

As I was listening this AM to Right Wing talk radio on 105.5 today, they had Colorado Springs mayor telling us in an interview that it was no secret that he wants a baseball stadium to be built downtown which he claims will somehow revitalize the center of the city. That’s as doubtful a claim as his idiotic boast that he personally will direct the city into ‘creating’ 6,000 new jobs during his term, which could only come about with a US economic recovery he banks on seeing happen though he would have no responsibility in bringing any such possible thing about.

The fact that he has such little common sense in making this comical boast in time of national economic downturn is underlined with his other ass backwards (to the real estate industry) drives to initiate FURTHER witch hunts against the city’s homeless population through a law making panhandling an illegal act, and now his budding personal campaign to convert the coal using Drake Power plant an area for a gigantic, wasteful, and totally UNNEEDED stadium bond project for his real estate cronies to personally profit off of. What other schemes will he soon be behind?

What a sorry cretin of a mayor the city is now saddled under! It is hard for me to believe that anybody worse than former Mayor Lionel Rivera could have been created but that’s exactly what the El Paso County Republican Party did in pushing steve Bach off onto the community. They brought us even worse than Rivera! They brought us Bach.

Bach as mayor is like having our very own local clone of dullard Mitt Romney running the show here at military elite’s home base, Colorado Springs. Makes us weep about what the future will soon bring to Colorado Springs, military show base central or not. More faceless, lifeless, and UGLY development by a real estate industry that only wants to build build build without any real thinking about how trashy their building really is? Certainly another big empty parking lot for a big empty downtown urban stadium like Bach is pushing for is just building more failure on top of the other major construction boondoggles in urban planning many other cities have already lost out on in having their own local corrupt politician and business crews stick it to the public and stick up the public with. It would be the crown followup for the real estate industry’s ugly SPRAWL to the north and east of the city, which is the real reason the downtown has so little to offer at this time. Much of the city’s public now lives miles and miles away from the core of the city in kind of dead zones. No! Make that really socially dead zones where they live in. YUCK! Now Back wants to bring their dead lands to us center city…

No thanks, Bach. We don’t need a huge lifeless stadium built downtown to add to the city’s sorrows. That building of stadiums downtown did not do any good for downtown Denver and it won’t do any good here in Colorado Springs either. We should not copycat the failures of others cities’ in their bad planning. Colorado Springs deserves something much better than a big empty stadium parking area to look at downtown, PLUS the years of paying off the bonds that would be sought to create an empty zombie stadium downtown. And we deserve much better than you as our mayor.
