It is time for our Mayor to resign, not from Council, but from the Mayor position. Mayor Donahue has stated repeatedly that he ran for Council to try to impose his form of social conservatism on the Town. Clearly the wackos that voted him knew that and he should serve out what is hopefully his last term on Council just not as Mayor.
The Mayor position in Castle Rock doesn't have much power, but what little power Mayor Donahue has he has abused. He has wasted Council's time censoring art. He has wasted Town resources by having our lawyers write letters to the Colorado State Legislature about gun laws that were already passed. And now he wasted almost an entire meeting (and probably another meeting) on his personal open carry issue. The stupid smile he had on his face when he "admitted" to being the one behind this showed how much pride he had in wasting everyone's time in a childish response to the State Legislature.
Also, Mayor Donahue also stated that the only person he had ever seen open carry in Castle Rock was himself. Since apparently he is the ONLY one who doesn't feel safe enough that he has to openly carry a weapon tells us what he really thinks about the residents of Castle Rock -- we are so stupid and dangerous, he might need to shoot us.
His election should not be overturned, but he should be forced out of the Mayor position because he is using it as a tool to move forward his personal priorities while other major issues receive no public debate.
Put your bullet back in your pocket Mayor and leave.
