Cindy Ficklin’s application for Paul Pitton’s seat on D-51 School Board raises alarm

Cindy Ficklin, who is seeking a seat on the District 51 School Board, poses with a hand gun.

Cindy Paschal Ficklin, one of Mesa County’s most far right wing extremist political figures, is applying for Paul Pitton’s District B on the District 51 School Board.

Pitton announced he is resigning from the School Board because of the recent politicization of board meetings by extreme right wing activists, particularly members of “Stand for the Constitution,” the group that has been repeatedly pressuring the Mesa County Commissioners to declare the county a “Constitutional sanctuary,” where federal laws don’t apply.

At the August 3 School Board meeting, the right wing extremists were so raucous and threatening toward Board members that members had to be escorted to their cars by the police. Pitton described the atmosphere as “just short of blowing up into something like at the (U.S.) Capitol,” saying the atmosphere at meetings is threatening and he felt bullied.

So, should the school board consider appointing such an extreme political figure?

April 6, 2020 Facbook post by Ficklin that has since been deleted.

If the existing school board members want meetings to become even MORE politically charged than they already are, they’d be hard pressed to find a better person to make it happen than Cindy Ficklin.

Ficklin is a fan of the former president, who expressed “love” for the rioters who attacked the Capitol on January 6th. Ficklin is a promoter of the right wing lie about massive voter-fraud and a defender of missing-in-action Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters. Ficklin wrote on Facebook that Peters’ office was “raded by the Secretary of State” [sic]. In a red-meat speech to a crowd attending a “Stand for the Constitution Freedom Rally” on July 4th, 2020, Ficklin told the crowd that “CDC guidelines for opening schools … are literally formed of human torture and child abuse.” She posts on social media that District 51 schools are indoctrinating children into Marxism and communism. She lauds pop figure Nicky Minaj as a public health hero because on 9/13 Minaj posted an  anecdotal tweet about the Covid-19 vaccine she heard from a friend of a relative in Tobago. Ficklin is a prodigious selfie-taker, is fond of posing with guns, and she has been banned from Facebook numerous times, with increasing duration each time, for repeatedly spreading misinformation.

Ficklin wrote on Facebook tonight that she is “throwing her name in the hate [sic] for School Board Distruct B [sic],” and given the circumstances, these are all very apropos spelling errors.

    • You’re “pretty sure”? Well, I’d say that makes you worth listening to. WTF dude?! How is her sleeping with you make her a bad candidate? Ya, obviously she has made some poor decisions (you – case in point), but who hasn’t? How about focus on all the good she has done for so many people in her lifetime?

  1. I contacted him about herpes cure and he told me how to get his medicine and how to use it for just 14 days. i did as instructed, i went for a check up and my result came back negative. so i made it a task to share this good testimony in the internet so that those sick can benefit and get cured. Email: Ro binso nb uckler11 @gmail com0……………

  2. Please tell me everyone saw or heard of her speech at the school board meeting tonight. Lie after lie after lie! Firstly, stating she’s been buying “beer and starbucks” two times in the past month for troops. No, she was visiting a man she was sleeping with. Assuming she bought him beer and Starbucks.
    She also states she went to CU Boulder. Odd, because her previous posts say CU Denver.
    While I don’t need to post my degrees, please trust they’re enough to know that a liar can’t keep their stories straight when in the thick of their lies.
    Folks, this woman cannot have any seat in D51. She is the post child of bullying. She has bullied me multiple times and each time I try to confront her or discuss, she further belittles and bullies.
    I’ve written to the board. Please do the same. Protect our kids from this woman and her antics. She’s mean, vile, and a full fledged LIAR.

    • Thanks Bree. I’m writing to the board tomorrow. And contacting all news agencies.

      Additionally, I will be contacting Starbucks corporate, and all beer companies. They must be pressured into having her banned.

      A massive percentage of our troops are underaged. If she is banging our military and priming them with alcohol, that’s not good. I’m going to be making yard signs and asking residents to display. We need governors and senators, we need the squad, all the help we can get.

      Also, Starbucks is crap.

    • I don’t know her or know of her but there are two things that should be clarified. She claimed that she has more CTE endorsements than any teacher in D51. She had 3. Her initial CTE endorsement expired 10/17/2019. An initial CTE authorization is available to applicants who meet the educational and occupational requirements for the particular CTE credential sought, but have not meet the coursework requirements for issuance of a professional (five-year) CTE authorization. I know of a teacher who still works in the district that has a professional teaching license with 3 CTE endorsements plus an endorsement in business education. It might have just be a mistake on her part.

  3. Just like Sarah Palin, people just wanna see her do porn. There’s nothing more to Cindy or her followers.

    Pave over her vagina – she doesn’t exist.

  4. Please keep comments civil and informative. Refrain from name-calling, taunting, use of profanity, posting any personal identifying information about others and use of personal insults. Violating the Comment Policy can result in termination of comment privileges.

    Allowing someone pose as me posting even more lies and vitriol, name-calling, taunting and whatever else you claim to stand against while vomiting it on others……makes you even a more sad case.

    Normally, I’d equate coming in here is like stepping on dog shit by accident…..but to have to do it on purpose is literally sickening….and society should scrape you off the bottom of its shoe.

    You are truly the most vile person on the western slope, Anne.

      • Probably around the time when he had a real job, instead of his “business” version of the High Country Shopper. One would think such a smart guy would know how to spell “discerning” on his LinkedIn profile.

    • Hi-larious! NOT! How do these two things even relate to each other? Panda Express? Oh, because they sell Chinese food? Ya, covid was spread out of a take-out food joint in western Colorado and was spread to millions, worldwide from just one person. What about the hundreds of other people who ate there just before covid? How come you didn’t name any of them? Are you for real? It sure doesn’t sound like you do too much “inquiring”, you should consider changing your screen name to “imdumbifollowstupid”.

      • Destiny;
        People aren’t necessarily being literal here. They’re pointing out Ms. Ficklin’s behaviors, lack of judgment, inability to tell the truth, and extreme short sightedness do not belong in any portion of this school district. Really in any seat for anything. Ever.

  5. I’m a Democrat, AND a friend of Cindy’s. Politics have stretched our friendship and we’ve gone through some tough times. Your comments demean you. When they go low, WE GO HIGH!!! Right now you guys sound ugly and hateful, and you need to knock it off. It’s no better than Trump calling every woman who questioned him “nasty.”You’re confirming to the right that Dems are awful people, and you’ll not turn a single vote in your favor by acting this way.

  6. Ha ha ha.

    First of all, I am wayyy too jealous to be a swinger, although I support anyone’s inclination to do that if that’s what they choose.

    I just can’t do it.

    Secondly, I haven’t had a sexual relationship in almost a year. — (I guess I’m just too ugly.) 😉 lol

    No really … I’m extraordinarily picky. And I can’t seem to change that. Sorry, not sorry.

    As for STD’s … Anyone who ACTUALLY know me … knows that I’m a FREEEEAK about how terrified I am of STD’s.

    It’s a phobia … But it’s probably why I’ve stayed safe … “while gangbanging the Naval base.”

    Is THAT what you said?? Or was that one of your “followers.”

    Craig Hall who owns the Business Times is a great friend of mine, btw.

    Cute using his name there in that comment. (eye roll)

    I mean REALLY?!! … How old ARE we, Ann? That sounds like such a high school bullying thing to say.

    I got a kick out of it, though. 😉

    Third, my ex husband Scott is still one of my best friends. And anyone who actually knows us … knows that VERY well.

    To say differently shows your ignorance.

    Let’s see … what were the rest of the lies?

    Regarding my college and graduate degrees … Do you REALLY think HR at the School District doesn’t have all those transcripts. Duh!

    I was a principal for 9 years, darlin’ … and a teacher/educator for 25 years this year.

    Aaand ummm. They don’t take “fake” degrees in D51.

    You’re gonna have to walk that lie backwards.

    What else …

    Yes, I own a number of guns. And I have a tactical training coach. It’s kind of IN THE CONSTITUTION that we have the Right to Bear Arms.

    I’m pretty damn good at my tactical aim, but I suck at my golf game currently.

    Maybe you should hit me where it really hurts. — And that would be golf. 😉 Lol

    I pay for a golf membership at Bookcliff Country Club, but I’m rubbish unless it’s a good scramble with super fun people. And then I play like I’ve always played at Pebble Beach somehow.

    I can’t explain it.

    I DO wish I was more consistent.

    Where else were you trying to discredit me?

    Oh … Covid. It attacks the elderly and those who are obese.

    Don’t blame me!! — I didn’t manufacture Covid that way. Someone else cooked that sh*t up in a lab like that.

    Oh wait … You probably still think it was a bat in nature, huh. Lol

    Nah. I know you’re smarter than that. 😉

    Sooo … Hitler, who wanted a perfect society of perfect people, would’ve loved Covid … because he was a freakin’ sociopath.

    And that’s a fact.

    Speaking of sociopaths … Oh never mind. 😉

    Look … I don’t know who cooked up Covid … possibly the CCP.

    I don’t know if we’ll ever really know for sure now …

    I just know it’s here, and your “vaccine” doesn’t seem to work as much as you thought it would.

    Didn’t the FDA just reject your booster thing?

    Does that not bother you?? … Big Pharma ready for their next big payout.

    Two FDA execs quitting because Biden was putting pressure to approve the booster that the FDA said today doesn’t really work.

    Are you really NOT seeing what the rest of us see there?

    You hate me because of that, right? Because I believe in the whole “my body my choice” thing.

    Or did you change your mind on that because of the pro-life movement?

    Cuz if you did, lots of lucky babies are gonna be born.

    But PICK a freakin’ side, would ya?

    Hmmm … Ann, what else were you pissed about?

    I believe in Liberty and Capitalism … It’s the American way.

    It’s been that way for 245 years.

    If you don’t like it … There are lots of other countries in which you can go live that are wayyy less free. Send me a postcard. HA HA HA Lol

    Let’s see … What else did you not like??

    Ohhh the bikini pic.

    Yeah …. (Nodding)

    I’m 47 years old, and posted a bikini pic after working my ass off in the gym and recovering from surgery.

    You better mutilate me now. (eye roll)

    Really?!!

    Are you seriously THAT bored?!

    Whatever. If that’s what floats your boat.

    Let’s sit around and write sh*tty blogs and posts about the girl who works her ass off in life.

    Gives to community.

    Would give her life for her friends … on both sides of the political aisle.

    Ann, you put strategically put together a whole campaign to discredit me … based on lies and spin.

    That’ll make ya feel better about yourself, right?

    In schools, we call that “bullying” in case ya didn’t know.

    It hurts people… And you shouldn’t purposefully seek to hurt people.

    Do I really need to make more of a point than that?

    Ann, you have a nice day.

    Cheers to all!

    Cindy

    Peace 😉

    • Nice try, Trolls;

      No one’s going to believe the response from “Cindy Ficklin” was actually her; it looks like a Facebook post by an angry High School Junior who’s stolen 6 cans of her mom’s White Claw and thinks it’s a point of pride that the creepy history teacher keeps telling her she’s “really mature for her age”. Seriously….what 47-year-old communicates like that, sober? You’re trying to make her seem even more unbalanced, senseless, and skeevy than Lauren Boebert, and that’s just not possible.

      Dial it back a notch, okay? No one can be that willfully dumb.

    • Cindy;
      I’m overjoyed you responded. I’ve tried multiple times to discuss things with you. In person and online and you’re always SO quick to dismiss me, argue with me, talk down to me… do anything to not answer me. So here we are; Are you denying your ex husband purchased his degree? Watermarks and all? A degree you supported he buy. And then BAM, you have not one, but TWO masters from schools you have never attended. It’s not cheap to buy those documents. I checked. Several thousands to ensure it doesn’t “flag” an employer. You cannot deny this fact.
      Cindy; are you going to deny giving out your garage code to a classroom of your students and allowing students to come into your home?
      How about relations with a student around 2009/2010 and beyond?
      May I ask why you were asked not to attend a local gym any longer?
      While many folks believe this isn’t imperative to a school board seat; I do! Your choices in life are far less than “exemplary.” Definitely not those of a “leader.”
      I am a mother in D51. I am not a fan of yours. And I will admit to turning you and yours antics into the school board MANY times (see me for screen shots of emails from Paul and others).
      Reality here is, your small fish in a pond you wish was SO big. And it isn’t. You’re still small fish. Your morals are nonexistent. Your credentials are an argument, at best…. And I’ll leave it there. Because the rest I have to say is extremely REAL, and not what you want then folks of Mesa County to know about you.
      Wash well. Take your pills.

  7. The School Board needs to ask Cindy why she left both vice principal jobs after only a few years each and why she keeps going back to real estate or back to teaching. She doesn’t seem to stick to anything longer than a few years. She has not been a producing realtor consistently for 20 years.

    She posted pics of her thong clad body-building competition photos on Facebook where her middle school student ‘friends’ could see her butt cheeks hanging out.
    She left her husband because she didn’t want to be married to sometime who was ill – he had Crohns. She’s known to have laid down on a public shopping mall sidewalk to get a tan while waiting for an appointment!

    There’s too many odd stories about her for her to be anything from a sub-teacher to a procipal…. and I didn’t know about the sex stuff!

  8. Way to keep up on your policies there Anne!! What else do you lie about! Hmmm…

    • You raise a good point regarding personal attacks whether they come from the right or from the left.

      In support of Anne’s valuable blog, I thank her for informing us about an unqualified applicant to the school board (Ms.Ficklin), and for giving us a way to contact the school board members to ask them to oppose Ms. Ficklin.

  9. Anyone dressing up as Cindy for Halloween? Its easy (just like her):

    1. Binge drink.
    2. Take off clothes.
    3. Put men into all your holes.

    …..and BOOM! – you’re cindy!!!!

  10. Alas. Joe McCarthy and Sarah Palin started it. Donald Trump put it on steroids. And now every a****** with a gun and a flag, like bobert and ficklin, think that they have a patriotic right to the throne. God I wish Americans would read a book for a change. Every redneck in Mesa County will vote for this lady.

    What Cindy says: judge not lest ye be judged.

    What Cindy means: I’ve slept with a ton of different dudes but that’s my business as a conservative christian. Now stand back so I can belittle you on my Facebook page.

    Coming within a 10-ft radius of this woman makes your dick look like a cheese pizza with everything on it.

  11. Anne Landman’s valuable blog provides us with timely information about Mesa County politics and policy. Let us act like adults who comment, instead of anonymously slinging mud.

    • You’re right. It’s definitely better for us to not tell a series of humorous satirical half-truths on a blogger’s website. We should do what Cindy did and get every redneck in Mesa County wound up and try to overthrow a school board meeting. Meanwhile we can do what she did and support our whack job clerk and recorder who’s now fundraising off of her felony. Definitely a good choice.

    • Anne Landman needs to step down for spreading and encouraging this misinformation and hate. Her blog and opinions are dispicable, utterly distasteful and arrogant.
      I hope Cindy sues you for defamation!

      • Anne is in her element. Anne is in her natural element. Anne speaks of the natural environment, of what is real, what exists.

        Confirmation bias gets increasingly difficult as it does not reflect the natural, is not natural.

      • And Landman is not an elected official, and this isn’t communist china. The first amendment cuts both ways. Cindy doesn’t get to sit on Facebook and blast everybody she doesn’t like as being liberal and accuse people that are different from her as being Democrats without some kind of blowback. Cindy is a person that positions herself as a public figure willingly seeking fame and notoriety and she should have expected this and this is what happens. Oh, and by the way. Obama had to show Trump the birth certificate so now I’d like Cindy to show us her diplomas and I’d like him to be watermarked from the institution she allegedly graduated from. She’s lied about so many other things I can’t trust her about her credentials.

  12. Cindy has no business having anything to do with public office. She is just doing this for attention. That’s all she wants. Her moral compass is way off. She is a swinger and has slept with half the lenders in grand junction. So many skeletons in her closet! She would only embarrass any office she holds.

    • SO many skeletons. And a great deal of her poor choices have been documented in photos and screen shots. She continues to bully people with opposing opinions than hers and these images will come to surface.

  13. 4785 days ago, Sarah Palin was all over the airwaves telling the universe that she would “get back to ya” with her list of newspapers.

    Maybe Sarah gave the list to Cindy?

  14. Where is her bible in that picture, does she not love jesus?

    “May the blood of christ almighty……blah blah blah”. FFS. Propaganda.

    • Should we all start talking publicly about made up rumors about your sex life as well? No class or facts in this hateful blog of vitriolic bullies.

    • I’m aware many share the same name, but it’s all too coincidental that multiple of your “supposed” commenters share the same first and last name as our friends.
      So, “Darren Cook”,
      what animal where you attacked by in front of me?
      Who won the last round of putt putt at your house?

      the point being, anne you and your followers can comment all you want. but use your real names! don’t be a coward!

  15. She just can’t get enough attention. That’s all this is. Another “look at me” ploy. Move along Ms. Ficklin. Your fake credentials and fake hair/nails/tan are not needed or wanted in D51 AT ALL! Go play with your swinger friends.

    • Fake Credentials? So why don’t you tell us which ones are fake then? Sounds like someone is jealous. Why don’t you tell us what YOUR Credentials are and all about YOUR rumored sex life?

      • If Cindy had gout or a cleft palette, not a single conservative would vote for her.

        Conservatives mistake substance for image – just like they mistake substance for an image of jesus. The ignorant do this. They are unable to see, because, they are ignorant.

      • I’d like to say, “Don’t waste your time white-knighting Cindy, she’s not gonna sleep with you”…

        but…

        uhm…

        Yeah.

      • Erik;
        I’m not asking for support for a position where my credentials matter. That being said, I have an MS degree. Ms. Ficklin has publicly stated her ex husband purchased his bachelors degree and she thought it was a great idea. She never says the same schools or timeline of attendance twice. Her degrees are purchased. This is a true fact. Ask her for a tour of one of her claimed alma maters and she won’t be able to even locate the dining hall…. Because she didn’t attend.
        So jealous? No. Hardly.
        This woman posted a joke for sale and at the bottom of the screen was her camera roll; with a photo of her vagina and her fingers on it. FACT! And that’s only the tip of the Cindy Ficklin photos out there!!

        • The School Board needs to ask Cindy why she left both vice principal jobs after only a few years each and why she keeps going back to real estate or back to teaching. She doesn’t seem to stick to anything longer than a few years. She has not been a producing realtor consistently for 20 years.

          She posted pics of her thong clad body-building competition photos on Facebook where her middle school student ‘friends’ could see her butt cheeks hanging out.
          She left her husband because she didn’t want to be married to sometime who was ill – he had Crohns. She’s known to have laid down on a public shopping mall sidewalk to get a tan while waiting for an appointment!

          There’s too many odd stories about her for her to be anything from a sub-teacher to a procipal…. and I didn’t know about the sex stuff!

      • Obviously Erik, you have never met Cindy. If you had you know how much she likes to brag about her sexual adventures. She talks openly about dinner parties where she encourages her guests to follow her deviant behaviors. She love the attention she gets when she talks about sex clubs, swinging, cheating, and homosexual relationships. She is often seen in public with known public swingers. She even posts openly on face book about her desires for casual encounters. She is not some one who should be around children much less in a leadership role.

        • This blog and all the people who take time to comment on it are a bunch of sad pathetic left wing extremists who have nothing good to offer the human race. You all are the butthole of society and do nothing but spew your hateful excrement all over town. If you all think this place is such a racist hellhole, then do us all a solid and take your negative unhappy ass over to Commiefornia or Washington DC with all the other hateful shit starters. YOU ALL ARE EXACLTY WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD. Unbelievable how vile and absurd you all are. No wonder there is so much hate…look at yourselves really good and hard in the mirror and ask if you are contributing ANYTHING good to society??
          Sounds like a bunch of guilty haters who have nothing better to do than to make up lies and trash other people in order to attempt to get that guilt feeling and attention off of yourselves. Anne Landman you and your shamefully run blog are nothing more than a hate factory incubator for attention seeking delusional mental health candidates.

          • There’s no apostrophe on “Moms” as a plural of “Mom”.
            You guys can’t even get trolling right.

          • All of your Mom’s – Pot, kettle. Lots of hateful words for such a righteous person claiming that I am what is wrong with the world. I am from Western Colorado, born and raised. I am a liberal! Yes, there are people who were born and raised in Western Colorado who are liberals. I believe in equal right for all! I am a health care worker who has not had a day off in over 18 months and I believe that vaccines in arms save lives. I currently take care of two people who are fighting cancer and one of them is a disabled Veteran. Seems to me that you are the one taking the time to comment and spew hate. Maybe you are the one who should leave if you don’t like it. Why do you even look at Anne’s informational blog if we are so evil. Nobody is holding a gun to your head, are they?

      • Anne is in her element. Anne is in her natural element. Anne speaks of the natural environment, of what is real, what exists.

        Erik don’t you have a freedom flag rally to attend?

  16. Why mess with small potatoes like the school board Cindy? You have the same resume as the last Republican president—run for president!

    • I’m a little bit tired of every two bit nitwit demagogue desperate for attention without any moral faculty posting pictures of themselves on Facebook claiming to be visiting and supporting the troops when the truth of it is she’s out there gang banging half of San Diego’s naval base. And I’m also tired of people thinking that just because she has one or two followers she’s actually fit for the school board. She isn’t fit for anything. She’s an embarrassment and she needs to go away. People will follow even more reality TV stars and Kardashians 2, but that doesn’t mean they belong in any kind of authority position.

  17. Just what we don’t need here! Another mouthy, good looking, and mouthy, rather pretty, political playground extremist. I am glad I don’t have children going to school in this town. Where is the other side? Need a balance here. Shallow voters will vote for what they see. It’s a trick!
    Thank you for painting that picture of what is going on.
