Our View: Vote ‘no’ on municipalization

"[I]t seems extremely unwise to put the city’s future at risk based on some vague hopes that this would all work out well in the end.

We urge a 'no' vote on ballot issue 2A."

4 on Pueblo City Council oppose new utility

"The Pueblo City Council voted 4-3 in favor of a resolution to oppose ballot measure 2A that voters will decide on May 5, which would allow the Pueblo Board of Water Works to take over Black Hills Energy assets and become a water and electric utility."

Our View: Blank checks and ballot titles

"Approving the referendum essentially would give Pueblo Water a blank check to spend as much as necessary to make this project happen. And no amount of legal mumbo-jumbo can hide that fact."

at-large member of Pueblo City Council

Too many questions on municipalization

"Do the voters know that: This will give the municipal utility a blank check with no expiration date? We are giving permission for the municipal utility to have unlimited condemnation rights in the city limits as well as outside the jurisdiction of Pueblo with no expiration date"

former member of Pueblo City Council
