Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

City of Boulder 2009 Ballot Issues

City Council approved four issues for the 2009 ballot, all related to taxes and debt, and all deserve careful consideration before voting.

Each ballot issue is defined in an ordinance that includes a summary of council`s findings on the issue - good for letting voters know council's rationale. But each ordinance also specifies that these findings are not to be printed on the ballot - bad for deciding how to vote.

Voters who want to know more can find these ordinances on the city's Web site and in the county election pamphlet. But for additional information about the issues voters need to know at which council meetings they were on the agenda, search for meeting notes, and hope that the discussions were actually documented.

Excellent assessment of the what the city needs and what Barry will offer. He is the only candidate that represents all of Boulder and the only candidate who has done his homework to be prepared for this important job. Thanks Mike!

Did a little investigation on some contributions to candidates, first, focussing on Barry Siff.

I started with the most recent filing on October 20th, and started down the list.

I thought to check only on $100 donations.

I got tired and sickened by what I found.

It's up to the real reporters, investigators, to research the contributors, especially those giving $100.

Wouldn't it be nice if the Daily Camera went through every $100 contribution and listed who got what from whom?

This is who Barry Siff will represent... It didn't take long to see a pattern... These are the first twenty $100 contributors on this most recent list filed October 20th.

Some of them are the largest Republican donors in Boulder.

I wonder what more we would find if we did this for every candidate in relation to every maximum $100 donation.
Below these contributors, is a list of contributors from another investigation done on the web, same kind of results...

Once again,

I find another investigator looking over Barry Siff's contributions.... I don't know where on the list he found these contributors.

These are all from another list... we really should check out Fenno, Ageton, Karakehian, KC Becker and others...
