Colorado Springs and its money problems will be back in the national spotlight Friday.
CNN is set to air a story at 6 p.m. Mountain Standard Time on the Campbell Brown show, journalist Jim Spellman said today.
The story could run at a different time in the event of breaking news, “but that’s the plan at this point,” Spellman said.
“We took a look at the cutbacks in Colorado Springs and some important questions came up about what we should expect out of our governments. We asked the members of the City Council and (others) about the tough choices that have been made and what they envision for the future of Colorado Springs,” he said in an e-mail.
“Then we took it to the people directly impacted by potential cutbacks at community centers. They obviously have a different point of view. I don’t think there are easy answers here, but we hope to shed a bit of light on the debate as well as introducing our audience to some of the folks directly impacted by the cutbacks,” he said.
“This is part of our network wide investigation called Broken Government, but I think the real question in Colorado Springs may be ‘Is this broken government, or good governance?’” he said.
