  • Three Stooges says:

    Mark Pulido scored a political grand slam with this pick. He outmaneuvered the three stooges Barrows, Chen and Ray.

    With three seats up next election we will see brother and sister running on a slate with non other than number one vote getter Mark Pulido.

    Someone one f’d up at the Republican club. lol…

    Democrats to control the council after the next election.

    George Ray aka Jim Edward’s ‘mini me’ is guaranteed to be a one term councilman after this fiasco.

    RE: Planning Commission:

    Xcel choice, as the council and commissions lack open binder. Glad to read, female will be appointed. Sure wish we had more blonds, red heads, handicaps and teens appointed, so the decisions made will be more diversified. Hurrey for the (D) .


    Congrats to the PC and hope the CCC will approve. Maybe our next mayor, as we need more female council persons.
