I had a feeling sooner or later something like this would come about: a petition for Longmont to drop the lawsuits and appeals against the Town of Firestone. Here’s how it reads:
We, the taxpayers of Longmont , demand transparency from our City Council. We demand fiscal responsibility in this time of budgetary shortfall. We demand our hard earned tax dollars be spent in the best interest of our community. We demand our council represent the electorate, not a special interest agenda.
Because of this, we feel it is time to drop all lawsuits and appeals with the City of Firestone. We feel our tax money is better spent keeping our city workers on the job than throwing money down the drain. We feel we deserve to know exactly which members of our council continue to fight for appeals when we have had judgments against us telling us we have no case. We feel that while we can’t take back the hundreds of thousands of dollars we’ve already spent, that this needs to end now before we spend another cent.
We’re asking you, our Longmont City Council Members, to end this fight. You promised us more open government, yet have held a record breaking number of secret meetings; we request you release the tapes to those meetings to hold true to your promise.

Sometimes you need to put yourself on record, have your voice heard. If at all possible, you should sign this petition with your name, not anonymously. But I, probably more than most, would understand why you would be hesitant to use your real name. We have goons and thugs in this city who do all they can to keep people who would normally jump into this fight silent.
You’ve seen them, you’ve heard them. To make their point they go after anyone and everyone even slightly related to this subject – whether they are leaders of LifeBridge, realtors, developers, right down to your everyday church goer. They have elected and appointed officials who carry forth their agenda, if you read this site at all you know who they are.
They use tactics to silence YOU, and I suspect they will attempt to take any and all names of people who sign this petition and do something nefarious with the information. That’s how they operate, basically the worst of Longmont and society in general. Real scum of the Earth types.
They haven’t succeeded in silencing me and others who speak out on this, are you going to let them silence you?
