El Paso County Commissioner Douglas Bruce is putting up a fight ... to save a downtown building and has come up with a million reasons to stop demolition.
At the commissioners work session on Thursday, Bruce made an offer to buy the building himself.
But his colleagues said no thanks.
The plan is to demolish the Atrium Building ... making room for a parking garage.
But bruce says destroying the building would be a waste of money.
The County says it would cost too much money to renovate the building.
