Douglas County has many leaders in the county government. The county clerk put woke ideology on the ballot on 5B. How does woke ideology work on a building levy? It does not. The county commissioners fight among themselves and go into investigations and innuendos. They pronounce about being against CRT, not wearing masks, and no vaccine mandates on one hand while the other hand is in your wallet. The school board fight almost as much as the county commissioners. They wave their hand on CRT, equity, and other issues so they can whip up the base on their red meat issues to distract them from the actual issues facing the schools. The treasurer brags he is bringing in 10% to 20% more revenue every year into the coffers of Douglas County. How do they get the money? Increasing property taxes. Rest assured the property tax increase will come this December. Douglas County is debt free, but we get nothing back because they get to keep all the money. The State of Colorado gave us property tax relief not the county. We want TABOR to hold the state in check, but nothing holds the county accountable. One commissioner is lobbying for a water project to bring water from San Luis County to Douglas County. How will we pay for it? The taxpayers will pay. They want to develop Douglas County and steal water from another county. Looks like the county government want to make us the California of Colorado.
