COS By The Numbers || Week of 9.24.2018

In this week’s show we sit down with members of SRAM to discuss the company and some of its initiatives in advancing women’s leadership – a topic that seems more relevant than ever as the majority group of 11 white men, members of the Republican party, are tasked with evaluating Supreme Court nominee (and incredibly…

COS By the Numbers ||Week of June 4th, 2018

Some big ups and downs in this week’s COS By the Numbers. The economic news for Colorado continues to be great, which seems to be reflected in the State’s continually growing marijuana market. On the “not so great” front – the Supreme Court has decided a case that originated in Colorado and featured a Christian…

COS By the Numbers || Week of May 21st, 2018

As you may have read, the summit between North Korea and the United States has officially been cancelled, as increasing hostility from North Korea has led President Trump to pull out of the talks. Trump cancelled the summit by writing the leader of a country that regularly starves and tortures its citizens a nice letter…

COS By the Numbers ||Week of April 25th, 2018

Why, hello there! Welcome to a politics heavy version of COS By the Numbers.

COS By the Numbers || Week of April 2nd, 2018

We had the pleasure of hosting Sarah Humbargar, Vice President of Development Services for the Downtown Partnership, on this week’s show to talk about bike share, the number of new apartment units coming into downtown and other projects that have broken ground or will break ground in 2018. This week’s COS By the Numbers is…

COS By The Numbers || September 29, 2017

There is a lot of development news in this version of COS By The Numbers – including details on the new bike share program launching in 2018! However, before you dive in, I would like to direct your attention to this amazing letter by State Senator Michael Merrifield in response to a recent Gazette editorial…

COS By The Numbers || September 13, 2017

This week’s COS By the Numbers is very heavy on the “wow, tourism really adds a lot to our economy!” vibe. I’m sure city leaders will see these numbers, think long and hard about what they mean and how tourism contributes to our economic health…and then offer some tax breaks to another defense contractor. However,…

COS By The Numbers || August 30, 2017

Hello COS! We are back with the COS By The Numbers; your semi-weekly (monthly?) roundup of interesting numbers around Colorado Springs, Colorado and beyond.

COS By the Numbers || January 27, 2017

A random hodgepodge of numbers for you in this edition of COS By the Numbers. Pay close attention to the salary of COS City Council members. It is low. When compared to similar size cities it is really low. Why does this matter? It results in a non-representative city council. Our candidate pool is composed…
