As a whole though I am deeply disappointed. Essentially electing Mayor Dave’s candidate/replica, continuing the status quo as if nobody remembers when similar candidates in our small town ran the city council along with our former mayor and the mayhem at city hall that resulted from them.
I also won’t forgive Kevin Walker, Bob Greenberg and the Grand County Democrats’ endorsement of Niehaus and their written condescension towards David Olsen in their email blast recently. It was blunt, divisive and uncalled for. I know they have the right to endorse candidates but in non-partisan local elections (especially in a diverse small town) it’s troubling.
I’m an extremely active and proud Democrat and know many others that were wholeheartedly supporting Olsen and to see my party dismissing and blasting my candidate to influence a local election based on who better fits in their social circles was pathetic.
Not everyone is involved or informed when it comes to local elections unless they make it a priority to do s — and those that aren’t as involved or informed, instead of getting to know the candidates as a person and hear their background, proposals, ideas and views — they vote based on endorsements like that crap, which does more damage than good.
