The Pikes Peak Bulletin reported last week that the Colorado Centrist Project Election Fund has been paying to mail campaign flyers supporting the re-election of Manitou Springs Mayor Nicole Nicoletta to Manitou voters. I have received three of these glossy mailings in the last couple of weeks. The Bulletin also reported that Mayor Nicoletta stated this organization is "a national organization that works to put unaffiliated candidates in office."
I find it disturbing that outside money from a national organization is being spent to influence a Manitou Springs election. I believe Mayor Nicoletta owes it to Manitou voters to explain why this organization is spending money to support her re-election, and what they expect in return.
