    Cordova sees no reason for a primary challenge from Ray Aguilera or Buffie McFadyen.

    "I'm not aware that I've done anything that merits a primary challenge," he said Friday.
    The above should be the quote of the week. Our memories are not that short Mr. Cordova. It wasn't what you have said or done in the last 10 days, it is what a disappointment you have been for three years. Remember the trip to Vegas in a county owned car?
    former City Council President Ray Aguilera confirmed that he intends to challenge Cordova in a Democratic primary.
    A am surprised that it took Ray this long to have someone Google for him the salary of a county commissioner.

    Want to know why you don't want to vote for Packrat? Read his campaign ads, look at all the money he spent building parks and buildings . .

    And then look at your light, gas and water bills, compare them with last December's (2010) and thank Mr. Aguilera for the increases . .

    You'll pay for his personal monuments for years . .

    Cordova's finally right . . for all the wrong reasons . . granted, the county doesn't have the $51 million to build the new Judiicial Building. Worse, the county won't be able to afford the moving costs and remodel to follow . . . how much of the Oak that's currently in the Judicial Building at 10th and Grand is going to the new one? Anybody know? My bet is Zero.

    Can't have "Used" Oak in a new court room. The Judge might be offended!

    So what will become of all that fancy furniture? Dunno, but when the county spends an arm and a leg to remodel the existing building at 10th and Grand for whatever purpose they decide to use it for, (probably the S.O. Offices or something, because it's that close) But count on this . . betcha they add on another couple of million for a "Slight remodel" and get rid of all that expensive Oak . .

    Another question I keep asking myself . . 14 courtrooms? They only have 4 judges and one's retiring . . did I miss something?

    Further, on the subject of the New Courthouse . .

    An excerpt from a suit being filed against the County Commissioners, et al, for failing to obtain consent from the governed . .

    11. The COMMíRS as the governing body are clothed with full authority to make all contracts which are essential to the management of the county affairs. LIGGETT v BOARD OF COMMíRS 6 Colo. App. 269, 40 P 475 (1895). See Article 1, ß10, CI. 4.

    12.The COMMíRS must ac " t collecttvely as a three member board in order to bind the
    county. NICHOLL v E-470 PUBLIC HIGHWAY AUTH. 896 P.2d 859 (Colo. 1995). See also, OíGORMAN v. INDUSTRIAL CLAIM APPEALS OFFICE, 839 P.2d 1149 (Colo. 1992). Stated differently, all three COMMíRS are a majority and must act collectively as a whole body politic. See Title 30-11-108 c.f. 2-4-110 C.R.S.

    13. The COMMíRS have not acted collectively as a Board with JOHN CORDOVA having dissented regarding the financial arrangements of this 55 million U.S. obligation extravaganza.

    14. The COMMíRS have admitted to the commission of a felony by choosing to use reserves on hand for two years to finance the judicial building. They are willfully in violation of Article
    X, ß 13, in the Colorado state Constitution of 1876. Evidence of profit is revealed in the Comprehensive Annual Transaction Report (CAFTR).

    15. The COMMíRS are usurping their subscribed and sworn oath of office by failing to honor their oath of office to "derive theirjust powers from the consent of the governed". They have entered into a contract to build a new judicial building without getting consent of the governed

    16. The COMMíRS know or should know that consent of the governed, the voters appears in two places in the Colorado state Constitution of 1876; namely, in Article 10, ß 20 (2)(4) known as TABOR; and in Article XI, ß 5 which obediently honors the Declaration of Independence to
    "...derivingtheirjustpowersfrom the consent of the governed. "

    17. The COMMíRS have usurped their oaths of office by violating Article XI, ß 1. They have pledged the credit of the county, the people who make up the county, in aid of a corporation-- WELLS FARGO BANK.

    18. The COMMíRS have usurped their oaths of office by violating Article XI, ß2. The COMMíRS have placed the people in Pueblo county (the county) in joint ownership of at least three buildings, namely new Heath Department Building, the addition to the Jail, and existing
    Judicial building.
    Lessee how far this goes . . .
