Only people that put themselves in the public eye are featured on Salida Confidential.
My neighbors thank me for the work I do. I live a very happy life providing my neighbors with news that the local papers won’t cover.
My hobby is DIY Independent Media. James O’Keefe, formerly of Project Veritas, and Tucker Carlson, former Fox News host, have embraced independent media. Now, Chaffee County residents can do the same.
Here are some of the stories we covered:
Salidan Eric Coomer , former VP of Dominion Voting Systems, is suing the former President Donald Trump’s campaign and a variety of others. Eric is a national news figure. Yet when he had a couple of run-ins with local law enforcement, there was zero local news coverage. We posted the police bodycam video.
Salida City Attorney Nina Williams was arrested for DUI last year, with Salida City Administrator Drew Nelson as a passenger. We posted bodycam footage showing Drew Nelson attempting to influence one of the officers who was in his employ for a more favorable outcome. No official investigation was ever mounted.
Salida High School Principal Talmage Trujillo was arrested after the high school lockdown. We obtained police reports and bodycam footage showing former Full Circle Restorative Justice Executive Director Kimberly Parker placing an underage teen alone into a hotel for three days. This was never reported in the papers.
The nonprofit group BETCH advocates for affordable housing in Chaffee County. BETCH Executive Director Cory Salty Riggs was named the 2022 Chaffee County volunteer of the year. She receives public money and wants more. Cory Salty Riggs was arrested for DUI and domestic violence in separate incidents. Watch for yourself.
Recently, Salida saw a 300-person counter-protest to a planned Rosary Rally at the Salida Library. The counter-protesters said they were pro-library and against banning books. They did not mention the obscene images in the books in the children’s section of the library. See the book images the library insists are suitable for children.
