Now Don Marostica has spent over $125,000 of his own money (much of it lately to discredit this website) on the State House 51 Race.  If elected, he will make $30,000 per year as a Colorado State Legislator.


Let's make this a TOP TEN LIST.  Inspired by a recent letter to the editor, can you think of better ways that Marostica could have spent his $115,000 instead of wasting it by trying to cover his ill advised actions on Loveland City Council?


Please submit your ideas for what we should list on the "TOP TEN LIST" of better ways Marostica could have spent over $100,000.

Marostica could have rewarding his dancing poodles on the Loveland City Council with $10,000 desk chairs for their homes. They don't seem quite comfortable in anything cheaper so why not buy each one a chair like the ones they bought themselves with tax dollars.

If Marostica cares about transportation, why not pay for the needed road improvemants where he waived the developer fees by projects he used to own? Oh, maybe its too much.

According to UNICEF, $100,000 could buy vaccine for 1 million famine stricken children and save them from slow and painful death from preventable deaths like polio, tetanus, DPT and BCG.

How about Habitat for Humanity? Combined with the donated labor etc.. $100,000 could get a low-income family a home of their own.
I would respect Marostica if he did this but instead he voted TO USE OUR TAX DOLLARS to support affordable housing projects.

Marostica loves charity when the rest of us have to pay the bill.

Hey - back on topic.
Marostica could have paid his ex-wife the money instead of fighting her in court. Imagine, supporting your own family with the moeny.

Don Marostica could have taken his current wife on a long and wonderful vacation with the $115,000.

The Aspen Knolls development (like many more) received a pass from Council on building infrastructure normally required and Marostica voted to waive the requirement.

Maybe he can donate the $115,000 to fix the Loveland High swimming pool or widen Boise where all the people who live in his substandard project cannot get to work on time due to congestion!!! LOL

We live in a development where Marostica and company promised us a club house, pool and other amenities.

As far as i am concerned, he still owes us that pool and is using our money to run for office. They controlled the HOA and decided not to build the pool after we bought our house.

i am interested if you friends of Don Marostica would please talk to him and explain that we are still waiting for the pool. A gesture to fix this problem would go a long way towards him improving his image with us before the election. In the meantime, everyone here is voting McNaught.

Because of the opportunity of early voting I voted today. I did NOT vote for 'The Don' Marostica.

And just how does one vote to raise sales taxes while on city council when TABOR says only a vote of the people can raise taxes?????

The same way the State Legislature passes legislation even though it isn't law until signed by the Governor.

If you accept Marostica's false logic, nobody in the legislature is ever responsible for how they vote since it requires either the Governor's signature or (in this case)a vote of the people before it can become law.

Let me quote for you the resolution Marostica voted for, "..amending Section 3.16.020a of Loveland Municipal Code to increase the sales tax rate imposed on..." Seems very clear to me.

The increase must first be PASSED by the City Council before it goes to the voters. Marostica not only voted for it I believe he seconded the motion. If he really is for "less government and lower taxes" he should have mustered the courage to vote no.

What I find even more shocking is his Clinton double speak trying to pretend he didn't do it. This speaks volumes to me about his lack of character.

The Reporter-Herald made a mistake? Name a day they didn't.

Congrats on a great site!! I heard about this on the radio yesterday and like the hosts said are doing a great job.

I read the Reporter-Herald this morning and what a great letter!! I agree, "The Don" should expect smart citizens to check his desperate campaign mail against what he really did in office.

I would respect Marostica if he ran as the moderate to liberal person he is and just disagree with his support for higher taxes and eminent domain use for developers.

Instead he tried to pretend he was against those things and WHACK you really gave it to him.

I think he should have spent the $100,000 on hiring better campaign advisors instead of the guys he did who put him in this bad place!!!

The evidence suggests that Marostica is just another rich Republican attempting to buy a public office. He espouses the Grand Oil Party's dangerous agenda, boasts about his false "rags to riches" success, has a documented history of questionable business and political practices, proves his poor financial management skills by mostly self-funding his campaign , and appears not to have had an original thought in a while. So, how could he have better used his self proclaimed fortune? My recommendation would be for him to use it to support a more worthy candidate.

A suggestion: Don't bother with The Reporter-Herald. Credibility and respectability are not their strong suit.

Hey - why didn't Marostica use that money to take a Dale Carnagie course on how to win friends and influence people BEFORE talking to the media!

If that character wins the Republican Primary, I am voting for the Democrat in the General Election for the first time in 30 years.

How can anyone support such a fellow?

I am just disgusted that a nasty fowl mouthed campaign employee of Marostica wrote a letter to the editor today. HOW PATHETIC! Paying people to write letters to the Editor - what next? Maybe he will hire a double in a wig to stand at steeet corners and wave at people with his sign.

Shame on you Reporter Herald for nprinting the phoney letter and pretending it was really someone from the public who cared.

We should start a list of every phoney person who is taking Don's money to speak for him.

Did you know she is also the Real Estate Broker who interviewed the other candidates on behalf of the Real Estate Board acting as if she was not involved? At least she picked the right campaign to lose her ethics on - Marostica's. Maybe she should drop the cute name "Kitty" and start using the appropriate title of "Old Alley Cat"

If the person you are talking about is Kitty Wild, it is worse than you think. She actually had Marostica signs put in her employee yards without their permission! I know since I am related to one of her employees! What kind of attorney does my sister need to find to protect her rights from the Wild Ole Alley Cat? By the way, never trust a real estate broker unless you know them well!!!!!!
