“Goldilocks” Levison “just wrong” for Longmont

If you are a subscriber to the Times-Call you saw a fairly self-centered and egotistical editorial by Longmont City Councilmember Sarah Levison.  This is par for her course as she’s often referred to herself as the “hardest working member of council.”  Talking endlessly does not equate working hard, it just equates…talking a lot.  But the “Goldilocks” reference she used is apt, but not in the way she means.

Trio of Longmont councilmembers don’t deserve re-election

(An edited version of the below was printed in the Times Call “Voices of St. Vrain” Opinion section on 10/7/11)

Our election is less than a month away and there are three council members up for re-election who no longer deserve to represent us because they have made their personal and partisan politics too much of how they govern Longmont. Continue reading
