Coletta For Mayor

of Colorado Springs, CO


"Let's take care of who and what we already have before we look beyond that.

Let's take care and listen to our current citizens, fix our existing roadways,

repair and refurbish the many buildings that already makeup our City.

Then and only then cater to those who want nothing more than to expand and sprawl.

Let's grow for the good first!"

Then vote for me!


- You can quote me -

I may just be a grassroots guy...

but what I can offer is to be the open conduit for the people, the citizens of Colorado Springs. The people need to be heard and their words must not fall on deaf ears. Each and every citizen of this community has the right to express an opinion and the right to ask their community leaders to consider that opinion. Two way communication is a must. I will not let our citizen's words drop to the floor to be swept away. I will work to ensure each and every Council person and all those under the direction of the City Manager hear the words of our citizens. This I can promise... this and the many ideas I have to improve our community is what I offer this community. All I ask is for your vote on election day.

I only have one campaign sign and that one is mounted on top of my car.

I do not like billboards and I refuse to use yard signs since they pollute and clutter neighborhoods.


I have been a civil servant for 27 years and

a facilitator for many of those years.

A Mayor is both!

You may remember first meeting me when I was known as the "Moose man". I took a month off work to photograph the Springs Moose each day as he grazed in Monument Valley Park. A number of news stories were done on me and the moose during that month and a half while he was here.
