Mayor Nick Gradisar and a member of the Pueblo City Council had their first public spat Monday night. And guess what? The world didn’t come to an end.
Nobody required hospitalization after the verbal skirmish. The gears of government continue to turn. And if any business prospects who are thinking about relocating to Pueblo heard about what happened, the chances are that their opinions of the city are no better or worse than they were before.
Why? Because that’s what happens between executive and legislative branches of government sometimes. There’s a natural tension between the roles those branches play and sometimes that results in conflicts.
