Planning Commission appointment shows Hotter’s true colors

La Plata County Commissioner Kellie Hotter’s nomination to reappoint Wayne Buck to the Planning Commission shows the extent to which she bows to a small group of right-wing extremists. Buck was one of the most outspoken opponents of the draft comprehensive plan, blatantly thumbing his nose at the hundreds of hours of community input and the $750,000 of taxpayer money spent on developing an inclusive plan. He called the process flawed, but he was a member of the Planning Commission that approved the process in the first place.
