Following on their inability to conduct a timely and accurate assembly with only 350 voters, the Adams County Democrats have released the results.  Embattled Adams County Commissioner Alice Nichol failed to achieve enough support to move forward to the primary and in her place the Democrats are nominating union activist Charles “Chaz” Tedesco.

postheadericon Thornton City Council task list: Transparency, a charter change and business

With Election Day over and a new mayor and members of council seated on the Thornton City Council dais, it is time to get down to business – literally and figuratively.  The economy continues to cast a pall on everything but there are other issues we would like to see council tackle.

postheadericon Following the money trail – Campaign contributions to Commissioner Alice Nichol raise more questions

postheadericon Tony’s Take – Obama’s SOTU sounded good; Reelection may be all but assured

I freely admit that President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address last night actually kind of gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling – at first.  Then it occurred to me that if his actions in the last half of his first term match up to the words he spoke last night, his reelection […]

postheadericon Adams County Democrats take a beating; Dem dominated county sees Republican gains

To say Adams County “leans  left” would be a very accurate statement.  Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by 11% of the electorate in the county – an advantage of nearly 25,000 people.  Despite this, the Adams County Democrats took a pretty big beating in Tuesday’s election.

postheadericon Lefty Hickenlooper to become governor; Some other state races still up in the air
