From Slapstick Politics: Larimer County Sheriff Decks The Halls With Nativity, Menorah
Sheriff Jim Alderden led an old fashioned tree trimming celebration Saturday in protest of the City of Fort Collins’ decision to remove religious symbols from city property.
The tree trimming was originally organized in response to a holiday task force that recommended the Fort Collins City Council vote to remove all religious references and colored lights from the city’s display. Because the sheriff’s tree is on county-owned property, it is not subject to any decisions the Fort Collins City Council makes.
BEST SHERIFF EVER – proud that he’s living in Fort Collins
