The Gazette: A Colorado Springs councilman said Wednesday he feels the new mayor is restricting his ability to ask questions directly of city department heads.
“This was not the policy under Mayor (John) Suthers, and it is wrong and dangerous under our current mayor,” Councilman Dave Donelson said in a news release.
The weekend before Colorado Springs Chief Financial Officer Charae McDaniel presented a city financial report at the council’s regular work session Monday, Donelson emailed her asking her about the city’s current total spending and what it was four years ago. It was a question a resident inquired about, Donelson told reporters in front of City Hall Wednesday afternoon.
