LP025: Presidential debate, Longmont Candidate forum and an OHOFOL sounding ROAR

On Episode 25 of Longmont Politics, Chris gave his impressions of the U.S. Presidential Debate, as well as the Longmont Debate & Forum.  The main event was the debate between Congressional District 4 candidates Cory Gardner and Brandon Shaffer.  Their debate brought up the issue of NISP (Northern Integrated Supply Project), and how Mr. Shaffer would not answer the question of if he supported it.

Next was Longmont Ballot Question 300, which is to ban fracking.  A new group called Main Street Longmont has put out mailers and a TV ad, as well as their website NoOn300.com.  On the other side, Our Health Our Future Our Longmont (OHOFOL – pronounced AWFUL) has a goal of raising $45,000 and has so far raised less than $600.  But at least they have some great prizes for your non-tax deductible contribution.

Chris also made some off-the-cuff remarks about rumors of people thinking of running for mayor of Longmont in response to Dennis Coombs lackluster job, and sets the record straight on VoteLongmont!

LP018: Shifty Mayor strikes again, fracking ballot questions answered, and Jared Polis lives by different rules

On Episode 18 of Longmont Politics we talked about yet another example of Longmont Mayor Dennis Coombs and Councilmember Sarah Levison‘s late night shenanigans.  We got answers to our questions about the fracking ban petition and ballot question from the City Clerk, and more or less suggested you don’t sign the petition or ask to have your name removed from it.  Lastly, we talked about U.S. Congressman Jared Polis and how he may have violated House rules when he paid a visit to the High Park Fire.
