On Episode 27 of Longmont Politics, Chris talked about the Times Call refusing to run his "Longmont's Liberal/Progressive Thugocracy" editorial, and made some comments in general about the newspaper/media industry. Then it was onto Ballot Question 300 (the ban on fracking) and how it's main speaker is now saying that if the ban (and cost of lawsuits or private property concerns) gets too expensive, we can just repeal it in a special election! Chris read the editorial by four councilmembers asking voters to vote NO on 300, and then played audio of Longmont City Council Mayor Pro Tem Gabe Santos speaking to council - as a private citizen - also imploring voters to vote NO on 300, citing the excellent Denver Post editorial requesting the same.
Chris then passed along rumors on the campaign trail relating to 300, and thoughts on the St. Vrain Valley School District mill levy 3A and how they are illegally placing yard signs all over the city. It was then on to observations around the city, including the shortage of Obama yard signs, and the possible outcome of the various races, including State House, Congressional, and Presidential races. And yes, some predictions were made.
Music played in this show was “How The World Ends” by Modern Science – courtesy of Music Alley.
