You don’t have to be a Republican to know that politics in Boulder County are more or less dictated by a powerful Democratic Party — indeed, by a relatively small inner circle — that faces absolutely no challenge at the ballot box.
It’s all in the family—the Democratic Party, that is, which enjoys a stranglehold on Boulder County government. First, let it be said that if the three Boulder County commissioners were Republicans engaging in the same sort of behavior, I would criticize them as well. What’s going on here may be perfectly legal, but to some of us it’s objectionable.
