Beginning this evening I will be taking a look at the Colorado State Amendments and Referendums by summarizing them and letting people know how I am going to vote and why.
Voting is an important part of being a citizen of the United States and hearing diverse opinions on issues and candidates is what this country was made upon.
Look for the first one tonight, Colorado Amendment 38.
You may view information on these amendments and referendums by visiting www.coloradobluebook.com.
For the last couple of years, the city of Westminster, Colorado, has been overcharging homeowner’s associations for water. They are supposed to charge them the residential rate, but they were charging them $.50 more a 1,000 gallons or the commercial rate.
This does not seem like much, but after a while it adds up. Homeowner’s associations mostly use their water to irrigate their parks and common areas, plus pools.
But it gets worse. Once the city was made aware of the problem, they didn’t stop charging associations for over six months. Still taking their money to pad their coffers. They now owe my homeowner’s association over $30,000 and we are not alone. There are several homeowner’s associations that are owed more than we are. Because of these over charges, are homeowner’s association is now in the black.
The City does not know what to do. They just struggled through a difficult budget negotiation for a city budget, struggling to balance the budget. Now they must come up with some sort of compensation for these homeowners associations.
It just does not seem responsible or professional for this to happen. Especially since they are not responding to questions of their own residents.
I have no idea what North Korea is thinking. I guess they don’t think they can play in the rest of the world and no one matters, especially their own people. The rest of the world has ceased these type of tests. Here are a couple of links to stories. One from the BBC and they other from CNN.
I am sure that there will be more coming in the morning, but you would think that one of the worlds poorest countries would be more concerned about feeding its people than spending money on nuclear bombs. But, North Korea has shown that its crazy leader worries more about inflating his own ego than helping its people. And he might just start a war over it.
36 Pages of Foley Sweet Talk? – Wonkette
I completely agree with Wonkette. This is just sick and wrong for someone to do, especially if they are elected to Congress. I support Wonkette and eveyone running for elected office should sign the pledge.
