This man has been mayor since I've been in Pagosa...30 years and counting. Words cannot describe how much I wish someone else would take the stern and that Ross would step aside. It is past the point of being ridiculous. It's the same as when good ol' boy Tom Richards was sheriff for 4 terms...The Good-Ol-Boy system is still alive and well, unfortunately, in Pagosa Spgs. Those who are intelligent enough to deal with a political job...don't WANT the job. I love this town and the people but the politics REALLY SUCK!

Ahem....be careful with the "shotgun" approach in your statement (i.e. "you people"). There are many of us who have/had to deal with Ross Aragon and EX(thank God he's finally gone)sheriff Tom Richards. There are many of us who live here and have to put up with Ross because we live outside the city limits and cannot vote - therefore cannot vote the bum out. Talk about FRUSTRATION!!

Once agian THE PEOPLE OF PAGOSA ARE GREEDY,LAIRS,or SHEEP. TAKE YOUR PICK

Nope. Don't have a clue who you are. Yes, I am a long-term resident. I said that I've been here almost 30 years. And, you certainly have a right to your opinion. All I'm saying is that you should direct your anger toward the people who deserve it....not toward Pagosa as a whole. Have a nice life in LA with Russell Hebert!! Another swamp rat!

Typical, complain and come up with excuses. Post on a board like this....dont have the guts to "put up or shut up". In what ways have you impacted this community? Move in to the town limits. Run for Mayor. Get your one vote, which will be your own. Yeah..put up or shut up....ur the bum.

You are quite amusing. You are a "proud pagosa native"...yet your location states "bayfield"....what's up with that???? But you have a right to post your opinion on here...just like I do. So guess I have to "put up" with you too. You must be related to the Mayor. LOL.

Wow. Don't get your panties all in a wad. LOL. It's honorable that you have an opinion and are defending the Mayor.
It's a ugly job but someone has to do it!! LOL.
Not to worry. Since no one else wants the job, your Mayor will get another shoo-in term.
I still think you are related to him.

I find it interesting that you choose to attack me but you don't know me.
My criticism is toward the Mayor...and at least I know who he is.

To answer your question...I am a contributing productive member of this community.
That is more than you deserve to know.

The Mayor's position is a public office and, therefore, open to public criticism.
Also, I help pay the Mayor's salary. That makes him my employee.:o)

I recognize the fact that you are the Mayor's supporter.
If you want to continue your trash talk ad nauseum, which, frankly, is quite elementary, why don't you go back and bash the person from LA some more. Seems you two have a lot in common. LOL
