El Paso County Commissioner Longinos Gonzalez and Colorado Springs City Councilor Dave Donelson appeared Monday on the Richard Randall Show (KVOR-AM) to discuss their commitment to keeping immigrants out of southern Colorado.
During Tuesday’s meeting of the El Paso County Board of County Commissioners, District 4 Commissioner Longinos Gonzalez used his board comments to publicly accuse Colorado Springs at-large city councilor Wayne Williams of lying to the media and the public.

Williams will also be facing Gonzalez in Colorado Springs 2023 Mayoral election.
While Mike Lindell was spreading election conspiracy theories at the state Capitol yesterday, the El Paso County Commissioners experienced their own version of “stop the steal” as activists took advantage of the comment section of the commissioners’ meeting.
