Letter to the Editor: Westminster vote disheartening

Posted

It’s disheartening to see the people’s voice ignored, facts rejected, regulation increasing, accountability ignored.

Westminster City Council didn’t properly communicate their plans to significantly increase water rates on top of January’s 8 percent water rate increase. In the face of opposition at the city council meetings, they voted overwhelmingly 5-1 to pass the increase.

Government is increasing and the people are decreasing. Families are paying greatly as individual rate increases become a collective burden. Families have more tax burden than ever before as local government (activists in business attire) only care about their utopian, bankrupting, secret agendas which are usually funded by big crony entities outside of our communities.

What the people want are elected officials we can trust to be servant leaders, committed to our US Constitution and return power back to We The People via stopping waste, fraud and abuse, reduction of our all taxes, more school choice for parents and children, safer communities, more employment opportunities (without crony deals on the backs of taxpayers), focused on community-led development not external views of what our cities should be, etc.

Will we get a government that aims to be smaller and gives our community our natural freedoms? Or a government that continues to make life more costly for all families and cancel our children’s American Dream?

I’ll look at my ballot, study each candidate and issue against my principles, evaluate who their major donors are via tracer (http://tracer.sos.colorado.gov/PublicSite/HomePage.aspx), and vote to have less government and more freedom for all families.

Anil Mathai,

Westminster
