LP020: Mexifornia and airport haters gone crazy

On Episode 20 of Longmont Politics we talked about a recent trip to California (aka Mexifornia), the anti-airport group (of 1) Quiet Skies going off the rails and losing all grips on reality and decorum, and citizens gone ballistic at council and how Mayor Dennis Coombs needs to handle them.  We also talked about another ballot issue to pay for the lawsuits that will come from a fracking ban ballot issue, and yet another way for Sarah Levison to shake down Longmont citizens to squeeze more taxes out of them.

Music played in this show was “Oxygen” by Dusty Hughes – courtesy of Music Alley.

LP017: Katie Witt on being an RNC delegate

On Episode 17 of Longmont Politics, we concluded our interview with Longmont Ward 2 City  Councilmember Katie Witt where she talked about the process of being elected as a delegate to the Republican National Convention.  We talked about some of the antics of the Ron Paul supporters, and how Mitt Romney was considered the conservative alternative four years ago, but now is considered a more liberal candidate for the Republican Party comparatively speaking.  I also asked Councilmember Witt about questions of her public support of a national candidate in the presidential election as an elected city representative.

LP016: Fracking ballot questions, voter ID, the airport, and deranged Tweets

On Episode 16 of Longmont Politics we played some City Council audio of singing anti-frackers and talked about their group (ROAR) limiting dissenting opinions on their Facebook page.  It was then on to voter ID and some questions for our City Clerk.  We then talked about some proof of voter fraud and letters from some people who may have registered illegally.

It was then discussion of the Twin Peaks Mall, Panattoni, Harvest Junction, the Vance Brand Airport.  Finally, we went through the quite revealing and troubling mental sewage in the form of tweets from former Longmont City Councilmember Sean McCoy, as well as those who “think” they are competition for me or any sane thinking person.  I invite you to check out their swill (Longmont Area Democrats & Free Range Longmont).
