Mother Nature has dealt all of us a heavy task over the last two weeks with the road crews carrying the heaviest load of all. I think we all owe them a friendly smile along with a hearty thanks for all the hours they put in. How many places in the world could even keep these roads open given the sheer volume of snow we have seen?
Thanks out there guys, keep up the good work and know that we appreciate your efforts.
Regardless of your position on the political scale we should innundate Rep. Tiptons office with communications until he actually starts listening and responding. It should not matter if your opinion is right or left, your elected representative should at least acknowledge that your message was received.
Two more phone calls, and another email with zero, zip, nadda in response from Scott Tipton's office. At least I get form letters from Cory Gardner even if he disagrees with my opinions.
COME ON MAN! If you cannot even bother to respond to your constituents you are NOT doing the job you were elected to do.
Any worker that manages to work 40 hours per week should be above the poverty line. Paying them anything less just transfers costs to the federal government in the form of food stamp and Medicade costs. When you talk about subsidies, keeping the minimum wage below the poverty line is one of the largest corporate subsidies in existence. In order to balance the federal/state budgets the single biggest thing we could do to eliminate costs in the safety net is to pay workers more. Sure, the cost of goods and services will go up for those of us with the money to purchase those goods and services but the economy as a whole would be healthier.

Representative Tipton writes:
"I look forward to reading your ideas."
I have sent him direct emails, I have sent him written letters via the USPS. I have called his office number above and left messages.
As near as I can tell, Mr. Tipton has never even read or considered even one thing that I have personally sent to him. He certainly has not bothered to respond or even acknowledge that he even received said communications. Not so much as a form letter. Nada, nothing........
I sent all three of our Representatives an email about the proposed Fanduel/Draft Kings merger. In almost a month, Bennett is the only one to respond. This issue is not about Right or Left, it is about the Daily Fantasy Game that has exploded onto the scene over the last 5 years.
COME ON MAN! - Scott Tipton you could at least acknowledge that you received communication from your constituents. Simply ignoring our communications is unacceptable.
Debbie, what information do you have that makes you so sure this individual is an immigrant illegal or otherwise? Nothing to that effect has been released to my knowledge.
It just does not matter if he is white, black, hispanic, asian, green, purple, lgbt, martian or homegrown. The activities and actions that he stands accused of are an abomination.
Ken, I accept the effects of Citizens United and that includes both corporate and union campaign activities right?
"The real issue is that the unions were meddling in local matters. Regardless of the effort to right the ship, outside interference and the politics that are involved is not tolerable."
Either Citizens United allows these kinds of activities or we should ban them, but signaling that only one kind of campaign message is unacceptable is "not tolerable."
That is the source and reason for my comment.
Ken, what does any of that have to do with the 5 members of the school board? None of them solicited or accepted any of these contributions.
