Divert a tiny bit of the 36% of the $370,000,000 annual Boulder County budget used for “sustainability”, “community programs”, and “human services” to chip sealing and resurfacing the roads that Boulder County owns?
Yeah, Boulder’s the capitol of the Rocky mountain, the high Hippy Dippy city. I keep remembering them as Big 8.
They must have a thousand oddball groups demanding funding.
Why don’t they tap some of, what must be incredible, wacky tobaccy revenue for the ‘truth-to-power’ CU hippy leisure class, and with the remainder concentrate on doing what local government should be doing, and for people trying to get to work, like roads and street repair.
