Sad, but true, there has never been a contested DA's race since I've been here (1975). No, I'm not running, but this District clearly needs a change.

I reread Kleiber's March 9, 2015 open letter to the City of Steamboat Springs and what I find troubling is his decision to resign from the SSPD in September 2013 and not participate in an "exit" interview. THEN, around a year and a half later writes his (much reputed) letter. What gives, Dave? if you had such concern for the improprieties of the SSPD why would you eschew the opportunity to "clear the air" and correct what you now complain of? What was the decision for you to resign from the SSPD (after being there since 2000) and walk away from a career in law enforcement? Could all of this rather costly Nuanes investigation been avoided by your failed opportunity to participate in the "exit" interview ? This inquiring mind would like to know as I also suspect that of the "vocal" community.

"As this judicial district’s chief law enforcement officer, I believe that, for this community to have faith in its criminal justice system, the integrity of every officer must be beyond reproach," Barkey said.

This includes you, Mr. Barkey and the Commander. Each of you should have the common decency to resign so that this community can have faith in it's elected officials.What an abject abuse of power. Pony up and pay her legal fees.


bill schurman 5 months, 3 weeks ago on Our View: Blight can be good thing

"New sidewalks and the creation of a promenade along the river will improve walkability, add to the vibrancy of downtown and could ultimately serve to spur private developers and business owners to make investments of their own in Steamboat’s historic downtown."

So turn the "... historic downtown" into what? Reminds me of the Pretenders song " My City Was Gone". Just leave the "Blight" alone. This is not Vail... leave the city as is, it's been doing well for many, many years.
