The Grand County Council, like the city council, seems to be in a similar mode as the progressive ideals are costing the citizens more and more money and balanced perspective is pretty much ignored. Nonpartisan politics do not exist here in Grand County and a better form of representative local government needs to be implemented.
I look forward to seeing House Bill 224 being studied and put into place to remain in legal compliance with state law. The last edition of The Times-Independent was biased and the stacked comments clearly showed how polarized we are as a county.
Accusations and personal attacks were made claiming a lack of transparency by liberals, but when you look at the process of how H.B. 224 came about, a full and transparent legislative process was available to everyone. When the study committee is formed, and the final decision is made, I look forward to having a voice by casting my ballot in the November election. H.B. 224 will help restore voter confidence because our nonpartisan form of government has failed and a change is required.
