The Longmont Years: 2000-2006 Coming to Longmont, and Wrongmont

It’s not with a heavy heart, but actually a quite light and airy one, that we bid adieu to the city we’ve called home for the last 13+ years; Longmont, Colorado.  But fear not, I still have to work there for a few more years, live close enough to be affected by it, and may once in a while throw some tax dollars its way.  Happily I’ll be throwing less toward Boulder County.

Longmont Airport’s future more secure with recent developments

With the unanimous approval by Longmont City Council of the new FBO (Fixed Based Operator) at Vance Brand Airport, the future of the airport becomes that much more secure, probably to the chagrin of those that have endlessly tried to undermine the airport for the last 20 years.   Continue reading

Longmont Airport complaints go “Hitlerian”

This is just too good not to share:

Before anyone asks, no, I didn’t create this video – although I think it’s brilliant.  I like the fact it’s personalized for Longmont, even with a phone call to “Tim”, our airport manager.  Now, if they would have put Hitler in overalls or made him a female…

LP020: Mexifornia and airport haters gone crazy

On Episode 20 of Longmont Politics we talked about a recent trip to California (aka Mexifornia), the anti-airport group (of 1) Quiet Skies going off the rails and losing all grips on reality and decorum, and citizens gone ballistic at council and how Mayor Dennis Coombs needs to handle them.  We also talked about another ballot issue to pay for the lawsuits that will come from a fracking ban ballot issue, and yet another way for Sarah Levison to shake down Longmont citizens to squeeze more taxes out of them.

Music played in this show was “Oxygen” by Dusty Hughes – courtesy of Music Alley.

LP016: Fracking ballot questions, voter ID, the airport, and deranged Tweets

On Episode 16 of Longmont Politics we played some City Council audio of singing anti-frackers and talked about their group (ROAR) limiting dissenting opinions on their Facebook page.  It was then on to voter ID and some questions for our City Clerk.  We then talked about some proof of voter fraud and letters from some people who may have registered illegally.

It was then discussion of the Twin Peaks Mall, Panattoni, Harvest Junction, the Vance Brand Airport.  Finally, we went through the quite revealing and troubling mental sewage in the form of tweets from former Longmont City Councilmember Sean McCoy, as well as those who “think” they are competition for me or any sane thinking person.  I invite you to check out their swill (Longmont Area Democrats & Free Range Longmont).
