Michael Bennet: Fulfilling our promise to veterans 11.4.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Colorado is fortunate to have a large and proud veteran community, and our state is committed to being the best place in the country for veterans to live and work.  More than 400,000 veterans live in Colorado. El Paso County boasts one of the largest concentrations of veterans in the country, Pueblo County is home to four Congressional Medal of Honor recipients and Buckley Airforce Base has one of the fastest-growing military populations of any base in the nation. Our veterans and their families have bravely served and sacrificed for our nation, and now we have a sacred promise to support them upon their return. That includes timely access to quality health care. A critical element of this goal — especially in Colorado’s rural areas — is access to non-VA care from community providers. The Department of Veterans Affairs, the agency charged with serving our veterans, has attempted to implement a variety of programs to offer veterans access to non-VA health care. Congress also passed the Choice Act to give ...

Our View: Look for Steamboat’s next CEO 13.1.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Diane Moore, community representative Carl Steidtmann, community representative It was in 1973 that the residents of Steamboat Springs voted to opt out of the statutory form of government described by the state of Colorado, which calls for cities and towns to be presided over by an elected mayor. Instead, voters here chose to elect a city council, which would choose its own president from among the seven council members and hire a city manager to do its bidding. Finding a right fit for the city’s new leader Understanding the city of Steamboat Springs’ form of government is vital to picking the next city manager After a long run of Steamboat city managers who haven’t enjoyed long tenures in the job, we think it’s particularly important that everyone involved, and particularly candidates for the job, understand the nature of the beast. Former city manager Paul Hughes, who served in that role from 1998 to 2005, described the essential elements of a successful relationship between city councils and city ...

Dan Foote hired as city attorney after receiving a wave of community support 17.12.2015 Steamboat Pilot
The appointment of a new city attorney on Tuesday night prompted a loud and rare celebration in the Steamboat Springs City Council's chambers. Just before midnight, Dan Foote's friends and co-workers broke into a raucous round of applause in Citizens Hall after the City Council appointed Foote as its lead legal counsel. Veteran local attorney Bob Weiss, who has worked on the opposite side of cases from Foote, even came to the podium late in the evening to express his support for the new city attorney. Foote, Steamboat's staff attorney and assistant city attorney for the last 17 years, brings a wealth of institutional knowledge to the job, including expertise on constantly evolving marijuana rules. He will now go from being an audience member and occasional guest speaker at council meetings to sitting on the dais with the council to provide legal advice. "It's very gratifying they have confidence in me to appoint me," Foote said Wednesday. "We are facing some challenging times right now, but I look ...
