Invited to search for accurate information about HUD/AFFH grants
A few weeks ago our County Commissioner Libby Szabo (Jefferson County Colorado – District 1) asked me to help her find accurate information. She is being bombarded with information from two different sides — information making opposite claims, even about the same incidents. She wants to know what is really true.
The question Libby is facing: Should she vote to accept or reject HUD/AFFH grant money?
Because of Libby’s request to me, I have been diligently researching through the internet and books; have interviewed several people with insight and experience; have learned some things about Douglas County that has refused the HUD/AFFH grant money; and have reported in four previous blogs on this site some of the research up until last week.
Meeting two days ago with Libby and Kat
Last Monday afternoon (2 days ago) I met with County Commissioner Libby Szabo for several minutes. Kat (one of her staff) joined us for another two hours. Kat and I then continued talking another half hour, after Libby left to get some work completed before leaving for the day.
While I met with Libby and Kat, I heard some points of view and pieces of information new to me. I have asked for documentation. Some things were given to me at the meeting, and other information will be forthcoming. I have studied what has been given to me so far — and will continue analyzing the information. I will report back to them what I am finding.
