Curtis Wells, you say you work for the people, not the council, yet you ignore the repeated votes of Grand County residents.

For 25 years, the voters of Grand County have stated their preference for our current form of county government. Yet, having intimate knowledge of House Bill 224, which mandates that we change our form of government, you chose to share it with only a few of your political party cronies rather than the governmental body on which you serve. If this is not illegal or unethical, it is at the very least a breach of trust toward your fellow council members and the citizens of Grand County. It is obvious that you put your self-interest and that of your political party ahead of Grand County.

You have, in fact, been politically involved in changing our form of county government. You intentionally withheld information affecting our form of government from your fellow council members. It is obvious you serve your political party rather than the people. While this may benefit you in the short term, our votes and the will of the people will have the last say.
