It’s Showtime!

I guess I should thank Longmont City Councilman Sean McCoy for directing all of you to my various websites.  Since you’re probably here based on his tirade of September 1, 2009, here is the video and a transcript:

“I want to throw my sincere support towards Richard Judays civility movement.  I’m concerned with the actions of radical, negative bloggers that write on YourHub and call in to the TC Line, fringe groups like LIFT and websites like Wrongmont, and Longmont Advocate, and the Longmont Report.  My concerns are that we’ll never know how these groups and individuals have hurt businesses and financial opportunities for Longmont and her citizens.  We’ll never know the millions of dollars in commercial real estate rentals that must have been lost.  We’ll never know the job growth for Longmont citizens and the home sales that could have happened if these people hadn’t been so negative in their actions.  I urge all of you out there to be productive and civil in this next election cycle and to ignore these radical fringe elements that run down the city council and the city.  Thank you.”

Last year, this same city councilman wondered about the “threshold” to take legal action against a city official, in that case former Firestone Mayor Mike Simone.

I guess we’re about to find out.

    Mr. McCoy seems to be concerned that “we’ll never know” how many millions were lost. I suggest he demonstrate to us how many were lost by bringing people to the next council meeting who will say things like “I was going to move my business to Longmont, but I saw criticism of the City Council that was so horrific that I immediately moved to another location, where citizens never have the temerity to criticize their elected officials.” If he can prove it, let him do so, and let us all acknowledge the truth of his charges. If he cannot prove it, it’s just Mr. McCoy sharing his speculation as though it actually meant something.
