That was the first comment it received on Facebook.

“As a founding member of original PPRTA Board, I can recall that one of our most important founding objectives was to engage the entire region in solving our transportation problems. I find the Colorado Springs objective and weak reasoning to exclude a community to be most offensive. To City Council, I appeal to you to support regionalism and stop thinking only of City power. You are already an 800-pound gorilla and should not fear for anything. You are sending the wrong message to all of your smaller neighbors,” Dick Bratton, mayor pro-tem of the Town of Green Mountain Falls, said today in an email to city and county officials.
Bratton was referring to the city of Colorado Springs’ opposition to letting the Town of Calhan join the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority with a vote on the board.
