During the July 7th Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) meeting, SpringsTaxpayers.com got a shout-out by Commissioner Mark Waller. It was during a conversation about potentially indemnifying certain actions by law enforcement. Take a look at what he had to say:
Why would Commissioner Waller think SpringsTaxpayers.com watches the BOCC meetings? Because we are always watching our public servants. One editorial note for Mr. Waller: we’ve never been unglued. Persistent, polite, humble, and citizen-focused are better words to describe SpringsTaxpayers.com. Our watchdog group is grabbing some attention these days—public servants know we represent hard-working taxpayers. Secret meetings and backroom deal shenanigans don’t serve the public well. Public servants work for you, the citizen. It’s your money they are spending. SpringsTaxpayers.com will continue to hold public servants accountable for their decisions and push for government transparency.
Will you help us in our mission? Our tax-exempt organization runs on a shoe-string budget. This year we’ve added El Paso County meetings to our already packed schedule. Between the City of Colorado Springs and El Paso County employees, we are heavily outnumbered. We’d love to add more SpringsTaxpayers.com staff, as well as employ legal counsel when public servants and politicians misbehave.
The team at SpringsTaxpayers.com truly appreciate your support in our efforts. Thanks for joining with us!
Donate here to help us stay ahead of the shenanigans!
