Consent Item for Renovation of Denver West Floor is arrogant, deceptive and betrayal of taxpayer trust

Obviously, you think that Jeffco voters are fools for you to approve a nearly $800k capital transfer to renovate the 3rd Floor at Denver West, BEFORE approving any capital transfers for maintenance at schools after the passing of 5B.

Essentially “hiding” this item on the Consent Agenda only contributes to your arrogance and deception.

You never would have approved this if 5B had not passed, so attempting to make this appear that it is not linked to the passage of 5B is ludicrous.

It might be one thing if once all of the 5B funding has been spent there would be no other school facilities needs, but you know that is not the case. Therefore, your allocating $800k to Denver West essentially takes $800k directly away from schools with needs, and that’s not right.

Schools should be your Number 1 priority, not your offices! I’ve been in those offices and they look perfectly acceptable. Fix the schools first!

What you are doing here is a blatant betrayal of taxpayers trust.
