Two Pueblo County commissioners are giving up their taxpayer owned vehicles and will instead drive their own personal vehicles.
In our 100 hour undercover News First Investigation, we found 2 commissioners driving their government cars more often on personal business than public business.
Also among our findings - questionable accounting for those personal miles, and that it's cheaper for taxpayers if the commissioners drive their own cars.
Commissioner John Cordova is giving up his county vehicle, and so is Commissioner Jeff Chostner, although we never received any complaints from county insiders about Chostner's use of the taxpayers' vehicle.
Commissioner Anthony Nunez hasn't decided if he'll give up the SUV that Pueblo County taxpayers own.
