Activist Kanda Calef shot down City Councilman Tim Leigh on Monday when Leigh insinuated that she’s part of the coal lobby.
Calef, who started Colorado Springs Citizens for Affordable Energy, which advocates keeping Colorado Springs Utilities under local ownership, vehemently denied that the coal industry is pulling her strings.
“Verify your facts before you make statements,” Calef told Leigh.
“I’m a stay-at-home mother who home schools my son. I’m a very busy person who is a citizen of this city, and I don’t want it to be intimidating to people like me to come and speak in front of people like you because you make false accusations,” she said.
