Woodland Park Concerned Citizens
We believe Woodland Park Councilman Jim Pfaff should immediately resign or be recalled.
Feelings – Mr. Pfaff says, ”I feel like I met the residency requirements”.
Reality – His claiming “homelessness” as his legal argument in attempting to fill the gap in his story is weak, as he has a home in Indiana. At the 12-03-2020 City Council Meeting, he participated via Zoom from his “home” in Indiana. We are confident that in his run for Congress in 2016, and ultimately losing a run for State House, he told the voters Indiana is where he wants to be.
The Residency Issue
Furthermore, based on evidence currently available to us, we believe Mr. Pfaff may not have been a Woodland Park resident for 12 months prior to the April 7, 2020 election (as required by the Woodland Park Charter). Firstly, and prior to the election, Mr. Pfaff signed an affidavit under the penalties of perjury that he satisfied the 12-month residency requirement. Secondly, he will not (cannot) provide credible evidence to investigating authorities that he was a Woodland Park resident on and after April 7, 2019.
If Mr. Pfaff was not a Woodland Park resident at that time, our hope is that, after reflection, Mr. Pfaff concludes he reasonably misunderstood how “residency” is determined and ultimately resigns. In any event, if Mr. Pfaff does not immediately resign, we will continue to push the issue. Additionally, we believe that if he did not satisfy the residency requirement, then Mr. Pfaff may have committed election fraud, and perjured himself.
