Longmont City Council Ward 2
Endorsement appears in bold.
While Rick Accountius has a lengthy resume when it comes to local civic and political experience, having served on many community advisory boards, we are more impressed with Jeff Moore’s early and steady commitment to the fracking ban and his even-keeled, open-minded approach, which never comes across as politically motivated. We like that Moore recognizes the need to balance economic development and growth to enhance Longmont’s quality of life, an acknowledgement that managing growth is sometimes necessary, as opposed to Accountius’ declaration that no growth limits are needed at all. Their performance in the Longmont Chamber of Commerce’s candidate debate on Oct. 10 simply confirmed our position. Our endorsement goes to Moore.
