I recently attended a meeting about the new courthouse. Maybe a dozen citizens, what felt like the entire staff of Delta County and the construction company representatives.
For those not in attendance, you did not miss much. We were presented with 3 options arranged by price.
We went there about the Courthouse building.
When the subject of the people of Delta County voting was mentioned things turned.
Your “public servants” and one very vocal citizen, who advocated like her next vacation depended on it listed about 5 reasons why voting was a bad idea.

The good news is that it will only cost every man, woman and child in Delta County about $1,200 each. If you are a family of four, $5,000. More if they finance and you have to figure interest which was not covered.
Honestly, I don’t know how they arrived at a figure as no plans were presented, not even a sketch and only ONE bid was submitted.
Expect to pay more, a lot more, than what was presented and it still leaves us with a courthouse that no doubt the county will want to turn into a museum or demolish at some point.
After two years of not having a vote about what the government is doing to us, do we want to support anyone that does not believe we should get a vote on this?
After all we’ll be the ones paying for it.
Not a SINGLE county employee spoke up in favor of a vote by the citizens, not one.
This was not a meeting to decide what was to be done, it was a FYI, this is what we have decided to do and we have already started.
I trust their numbers about as much as I trust gas station sushi.
I urge everyone to make your voices heard, especially the business owners that depend on courthouse traffic.
Another great example why we must Replace Career Politicians with Patriots.
