Elections for Longmont City Council positions are non-partisan. Longmont Area Democrats and their “Progressive Center” are anything but non-partisan. They are holding a candidate forum on Wednesday September 7th – any serious candidate, regardless of party, should avoid attending this event on principle alone, if nothing else.
Supposedly “Longmont’s longtime statesman and patriarch Tom McCoy” (their description, not many other peoples) was to moderate this event, but in recent posts his name has been removed. I’m sure it would be fair, regardless that his loathsome son Sean McCoy would be one of the candidates. That, and it’s being held by LAD at their own facility – visions of the old Soviet Politburo come to mind.
