On Tuesday Oct 10th I attended the Metro Meeting where Commissioner Ortiz talked about needing a new jail. I hope he went to the hospital afterward because he may have broken his arm patting himself on the back for all the work he did. It seems he only needs 140 million dollars to get it built. When asked what alternatives were explored he said they would not get the job done. When asked about all the money Pueblo County received that went into the park system, he said he wasnít happy about that but that is what needed to be done. Prison facility in Walsenburg? That would cost two million dollars a year for a lease and they would have to provide food and transportation to the inmates. But isnít it already built? Why, according to our illustrious Commissioner the only way to do this properly is to stick his hand into our pockets and take the money they think they need. The other two commissioners would be very proud of your actions. I think I will vote no on 1A and keep my money in my pocket.
