I'm voting for Lisa Kellogg, McKinley hasn't done squat for southeastern Colorado!
He did get a sexual harrassment charge, but due to a "Rule" 68 I believe, the details of the House ethics will not disclose what punishment he will get? It's like our elected officials do not have to follow the same rules we do? Time to send his guy home to Baca County!

If you are thinking of voting for the Republicn Tea Party, look at Prowers County. For the past 10 years Prowers County has been under Republican rule. Every elected offical in Prowers County is Republican, and most have been in office for 20 years or more. John Stulp was the last Democrat and the wind farm was the last growth. Since he left, our county has lost 10% of population, lost jobs, NeoPlan gone, Co-op closed with no help from county, no growth at all. This is an ag community, but Republicans in power do not want to be a "cow town". They make sure that PCDI is funded, which makes sure that no good paying jobs come here. The only jobs even looked at are less than $7.00/hr. Do you think maybe some progressive thinking might be good? Look at Bent County, Otero County, Garden City, all have a diverse commissionors/elected officials. They have grown. Look at Baca, Kiowa, Prowers, nothing happening, all Republican. So what is the Rebulican Agenda?

So the horrible mismanagement and maybe even theft that caused the coop to close is the fault of the republicans? Looks like you need to get a grip on reality.

The difference between tea party republicans and entitlement based democrats is startling. you have the left wing entitlement suckers who suck the life out of anyone paying taxes and demand that government increase taxes to support their habits, or tea party right wingers who believe if you want it you should pay for it.

Yes Prowers is an AG county, but why does the county have to kill off its citizens with ag related polution? How about improving the situation by cleaning up the air around feedlots and increasing wages on your own instead of begging government to support higher wages?

It is not governments resposibility to throw money in the black holes such as Neoplan and the COOP.

That COOP example has to be the worst example of all time.
