here is emails I am getting why Plan Cheyenne is so Bad
Here is my editorial I submitted to the local newspaper
Plan Cheyenne, first of all is not trusting our own people who can make good decisions for our community. Our local officials are much closer to us than an outside entity. Decisions are currently being made by the local development as they listen to those in our community. An outside entity removes local input from those in the community. Another thing is, when did grant money not have strings attached? Do we understand the end result of this decision, or do we put the horse before the cart? In another words, do we have to pass this to find out what is in it? With our country in such debt, is it wise to take money that has debt attached to it? Have you thought about your children's future? When I talked to a international trade specialist from the Indiana Government, he had told me over 70 percent of water treatment plants in America were owned by Foreign Countries...that was 2 years ago. Something similar happening in Boulder, Colorado. The Colorado Department of Transportation is planning to lease the Boulder Turnpike US Hwy 36 to an Australian company for 50 years. Even more, it's a closed-door deal and people are mad, really mad! And the ones that are angry are the libs in Boulder because now they see their liberties being destroyed. Here is the article: http://kdvr.com/2014/02/11/debate-on-public-private-deal-for-u-s-36-renovations-tolls-heats-up/ - http://www.privatizationwatch.org/2014/02/february-13-2014/. As an Elected Official, by taking Federal Money, you will silence your position, we the people here in Laramie county, and the City of Cheyenne. Others will make decisions for us who will not consider what the community wants. I ask, who will own us when we owe 17 Trillion dollars in debt? Not the Federal Government. The one who barrows is the slave to the lender. At what point do these countries say, "Pay up" and start taking over because of the debt we owe? So I am saying to elected officials of Laramie county and the city of Cheyenne, "Don’t sell out our freedom for 30 pieces of silver."
Every elected official should vote No on Plan Cheyenne after watching this. We must be fiscal conservative and disciplined conservatives and not take the $114 million dollars of Map 21 federal dollars with green strings attached and add to the 17 trillion dollar taxpayers debt that our children will have to pay back.. The two town halls we had has brought in over 250 people and the concerns of people are growing. This has destroyed Colorado cities,Plan Detroit, Plan New york, and Plan Chicago.. The Clarion firm is responsible for this... If your calling that a modern day city then we don't need Plan Cheyenne. We have a gold mind here its are western heritage freedom and liberty that everyone comes here for to get away from the other things and places, lets not let the federal government ruin that with going green bike paths and regulations.
We have a plan that we used for a 150 years that passes state status. Get rid of the MPO and the dept. Save $800k and give it back to the county and city planners.
All elected officials after two weeks of town hall public comments should be thinking;These are the dates for everyone to show up in mass; Tell your contacts tell your neighbors tell a friend ,tell businesses
letters emails, phone calls, newspapers adds, and call local radio stations (Kgab 650 # is 632-6500).
March 4th 6 PM, city council as a whole, March 10th 6PM city council final vote Both meetings need lots of public comment. City Council # 307-637-6357 Mayor office # 307-637-6300
March 11th 5PM County Commissioners' meeting, need lots of public comment. County phone # 307-633-4260
We must be fiscal conservative and discipline conservative don,t take the $114 million with green strings attached.
Protect our western heritage. We need to ask them to vote no or gives us a ballot Vote. some are saying get rid of the MPO Tom Mason and that dept. and save $800 thousand. give it back to City and county planners like it was for a 150 years.
