Some towns are big and brash and happy and confident. Some are like Colorado Springs, too often a small-minded place, roiling with doubt and discontent, full of angst and even anger. We’re a place that feels as if everyone else thinks we’re the dork in class, though it’s worse than that. We feel that our… Continue Reading Strong leadership will help city hold its head high
