LP024: Hickenlooper attacked in Longmont, Presidential predictions, and Bagley’s got a gun

On Episode 24 of Longmont Politics, Chris talked about the libelous comments of former Longmont City Councilmember Sean McCoy (Twitter: @seanpmccoy) and suggesting Chris was a “homegrown terrorist”.  Then it was on to Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper and his visit to Longmont involving fracking and the harassment he received and the near-riot by Our Health, Our Future, Our Longmont (OHOFOL).

Chris then talked about his current presidential predictions, and finished up with the story of Longmont City Councilmember Brian Bagley and his accidental bringing of a firearm to the Boulder County courthouse.

LP013: Brian Bagley and the neverending fracking fracus

On Episode 13 of Longmont Politics, we broadcast LIVE and had Longmont Ward 1 City Councilmember Brian Bagley in-studio.  We talked about his director work on his film “El Cartel“, we went over his comments at the recent council meeting about the fracking regulations, took some questions from callers and people in the chat room, and talked about MileHi Skydiving and his position on the airport.  Thanks to Brian and all the people who called, chatted, and listened.  Regardless if you love/hate myself or Brian, this interview has a little bit of something for everyone regardless of your politics and position on fracking.
