Broderick undermined budget with campaign

Durango City Councilor Paul Broderick approved the cityís budget which was dependent upon the $900,000 La Plata Electric Association franchise fee and then used his official position to actively campaign against it.

His actions will end up costing the city of Durango $18 million over the course of the next 20 years. Broderick breached his fiduciary responsibility when he neglected his duty to put his constituentsí interests ahead of his own personal ideology.

Durango is a great place to live and work, but it is important that we donít rest on our laurels and let our progress fall victim to the simple-minded thinking that Broderick subscribes to.
