Dear Editor:

Sadly, I have to report that a conspiracy to highjack our county government, led by a contracted attorney, Todd Starr, began in earnest last Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014, when a work session had been scheduled by the BOCC, to proceed with ballot initiatives, presented by the citizens of Archuleta County back in November, 2013. From the outset of the meeting, Clifford Lucero made it clear that under the direction of Todd Starr, he and the other commissioners would take no action to follow the law, as laid out in Colorado Revised Statutes; 30-11-103.5, 31-11-101, and 1-40-101. Under these statutes, the BOCC is directed how to proceed with initiatives presented by the people of the county. This is a very grievous offense, an outright violation of their oath to uphold and defend the constitution, from all enemies foreign and domestic. These elected officials are our servants, as in public servants and a crime has been committed by Todd Starr, Clifford Lucero, Michael Whiting, and Steve Wadley. This violation of oath carries federal criminal consequences. This is no joke. The commissioners meeting room was filled with citizens prepared to work out the details of putting these initiatives to a vote of the People of Archuleta County and our elected officials and their attorney committed treason. Why, I do not know, but a crime was committed on us all and our rights were outright violated. Will the BOCC make things right by apologizing and following the law or not, time will tell. Advocating the overthrow of government by violation of oath is a federal criminal offense and doing so in a time of war is Treason.
