“What is the benefit, to the average taxpayer in the Westminster community of spending $100 million taxpayer dollars on a New Downtown?” – Jason Blanckaert
Westminster, CO (PRWEB) September 21, 2015
Debbie Bergamo, Jason Blanckaert and Mike Melvin have joined in their campaigns to build a “New Majority” on the Westminster City Council. Along with current Councillor Bruce Baker, their intent is to give the voters in Westminster a clear choice in how the city is being managed.
Bergamo, Blanckaert and Melvin are the only candidates in the Westminster City Council race who are on the record as opposing the New Downtown project. The wastefulness of taking prime real estate in our city to convert it to 2,300 apartments, 4 to 6 story buildings and relying heavily on RTD for transportation for its residents is objectionable to these three candidates. This coupled with the idea of spending $100 or more million tax dollars to fund the project without going through the proper TABOR channels to avoid it being voted on is inexcusable to them. Bergamo, Blanckaert and Melvin would like to bring back transparency to the city council. The people of Westminster deserve to be represented efficiently and ethically, and to have their tax dollars spent in ways to benefit all.
