Even though Pueblo voters rejected ballot issue 1A on Nov. 7, the Pueblo County Jail remains a problem that simply won't go away. At the last unofficial count, raising taxes to build a new county detention center went down by a vote of 18,920 against and 16,258 for -- a nearly 2,700-vote defeat that likely would be repeated if the county tried to bring it back in a future election.
