Longmont Race for Mayor Heats Up

The race for Mayor of Longmont is getting interesting. The two recent debates indicate that Greg Harris, long-time resident of Longmont is clearly the most conservative pro-business candidate in the race.

He recently testified against enactment of the Healthy Beverage Ordinance. Then, he argued in the debates that the recent adoption by the City Council of a resolution supporting the federal adoption of a Carbon Tax was bad policy and bad for the citizens of Longmont.

Greg’s focus for the campaign is the city needs to do everything it can to enable workforce middle-class housing to be built in Longmont. Also, he has clearly called for funding of the project to improve Highway 66.

Many have said this November 2nd Mayor’s race could give a signal on voter’s opinions leading up to the November 2022 Congressional elections. 

So, be on the lookout for ballots which started being mailed on October 11th.

For more information on the Greg Harris campaign check out: greg4mayor.com or facebook.com/gregharrismayor. Or write to: gregharrismayor@gmail.com.

October 18th, 6pm in the Eaton Humanities rm 250 and livestreamed hear Michael Strain on Defending Economic Liberalism Against Populist Assault. Click here to read more and to register.

Economic liberalism is under attack from the progressive left and the populist right. Both argue that free markets and limited government have been a disaster for typical workers and households, and for the nation as a whole. Michael Strain will present research showing that the doomsaying is wrong. Capitalism isn’t broken. The game isn’t rigged. Moreover, economic liberalism inculcates virtue--in individual citizens and society as a whole--and is a necessary complement to individual liberty. Michael Strain will discuss threats to liberalism, and policies to complement it.
