Early Childhood Alliance
The Early Childhood Alliance presentation to City Council highlights why I love the TABOR requirement of citizen approval before a new tax can be implemented. The Tuesday night presentation follows the typical pattern of providing feel-good elements while avoiding all discussion of actual costs, tax rates and manner of administration such as whether those who spend the potential tax receipts are to be elected or appointed. Absent TABOR requirements, I believe the City Council would have fallen all over themselves to vote in favor of the proposal, regardless of such essential details.
I still think Longmont is too small to support an expanded cultural center and performing arts venue other than what we’ve got already. … I just don’t think Longmont has enough private support for such a facility expansion.
You say “Dilbert” shouldn’t be discontinued because its author, Scott Adams, was just using his First Amendment rights. But here’s the thing: Free speech and hate speech are not the same. Hate speech often leads to damage and even death. You can believe what you want, but in certain cases it’s best to keep your thoughts to yourself.
I’m calling to find out if you could give some attention to the police department on the fact that cars are standing still waiting for lines of people to go through a coffee shop drive-thru on Main Street and it’s piling up the traffic and causing danger. I think somebody needs to do something about that, and I don’t know where to start. If anyone has any suggestions, please print this in the TC Line so that I can make appropriate calls to appropriate people.
