we call Todd Trustee Jirsa? You better bet your bottom dollar his name will be on the ballot in April. He's just warming up.

Speaking of the pot calling the kettle black everything Todd is accusing the town of he did as a school board member. Does he think our memories are that short?

Free Estes? You have got to be kidding. What we need to be free of is Todd Jirsa. He just can't stay out of the spotlight can he? Will 1% hurt your business that much?
Twenty five percent

The correct questions is - will a 25% increase in the local sales tax hurt your business that much?

Quite possibly not But I do agree with Jirsa when he questions why the infrastructure of this town have been allowed to slide so much. I have no problems with our paying the town employees well - that part of his argument seems to be Tea Party government employee bashing.

Anyone go to the Post Office at night? Why have those two streetlights been out for months? It's near pitch black there! Oh, maybe it's because the clueless trustees and the administrator don't go there at night and have no clue about the conditions of the community?

That eroded ditch on the side of the road on the Bypass - it could have been filled in with one load of fill from the back of a Town one-tonner - but no, let the ditch sit there and have residents drive into it and damage their suspensions and tires. Luckily it's filled with packed snow right now - but these clueless trustees don't care what the poor infrastruture can do to a working person's vehicle - a working person who may be only one or two paychecks ahead - tough! Screw 'em! They have no place hear in paradise!!
