Durango Herald's February 22: “O the irony!” said Dave Peters, another (Lachelt) recall organizer, in the news release. “It turns out the queen of outside dark money is actually Commissioner Lachelt herself.” Recall supporters created a website, Save La Plata County, which explains why they are seeking her removal from office.”
“The Voice of the Industry in the West - focuses on federal legislative, regulatory, environmental, public lands and other policy issues. We represent the voice of the Western oil and natural gas industry in a variety of ways.”
Venom filled words, but in the end very little substance and what there was of that was misrepresented. This is precisely the kind of emotional vitriol that destroys the democratic civility we depend on to keep our society functioning. Exactly what the oligarchs want, this cynical recall attempt is doing their bidding.
