A reminder to those that once supported Ray. At his first appearance before the Western Slope Conservative Alliance candidate forum, he stated two interesting positions.  The first was he was only going to run “once.”  That he had no intention of making this a habit. Audience did the: HA HA thing.  The second is he wanted to “sell all public lands” (since he has been a developer I can only assume the sales would be to wealthy developers like Shell, Anadarko etc for oil and gas development at the expense of our agriculture).  He would have the state put the money aside for state use.  If this idea had been followed, the money would be gone by now after the fires of last year and this year’s flooding. Hunters would not have a place to hunt, fishermen could not fish, most of the Western Slope access to our state would be gone and businesses and jobs would be a thing of the past. Would anyone want to live here if you could only see the state driving down the road?  Now, after his TWO terms in office as Representative, he has not taken enough interest in the laws of the state to follow candidacy requirements without blaming “those” people, “their” rules, no one told him.  Who tells you which leg goes first into your pants Ray? Come on everyone.  Is Ray really the person you want to represent your BEST interests?  If I had accorded myself in my job as he has as a Representative, people could have died.  He is at best a chair-warmer and my fellow Republicans know it. If you like living in Colorado it is because in the past the state came first over partisan politics.  Konola maybe a Democrat but she thinks for herself.

I will never forget Claudette’s performance in the debate with Steve King in 2010.  She displayed a sneering and condescending attitude toward Steve and topped the evening with her nasty peacock
comment directed at him.  Since Steve is a genuinely nice guy it got her nowhere on election night.

I agree. I too like Steve King and I’m glad to see he is going back to his real love…law enforcement.  But Claudette Konola is not running against Steve, a man of proven integrity.  Ray Scott goes out of his way to blame others for his short comings.  He has been in office and has run 2 now 3 campaigns and he doesn’t know how to follow the laws of the state regarding candidate financial disclosure requirements?  You and I would make the mistake once, but he makes a habit of it.  Why would I want to give him campaign money? He has been making state law and doesn’t follow the law. Steve made that mistake once and got into a lot of trouble.  How is Scott side-stepping censure? Then Ray goes around blaming the nebulous “their” rules, “they” didn’t tell him, etc.  He’s a grown man…I think.  Claudette Konola has been an open book the last 2 years on her Free Press commentary. Ask yourself, what has Ray Scott accomplished for the Western Slope? Just because he is a Republican does not mean he gets my vote.
