Dilraj's Thoughts

The Sacramento Kings are my favorite team. I’m happy that they fired their coach, Dave Joerger. Unfortunately, we did not make the playoffs and we don’t have our pick this year (owned by the Boston Celtics). They made a mid-season trade for Harrison Barnes, which was a good pickup.

As of May 6, candidates for Longmont’s mayoral and city council seats will have to follow a revised and updated set of rules and regulations for reporting campaign contributions and spending[cq comment=”in their campaigns”]. [cq comment=”Current “]Council [cq comment=”members “]voted 6-0 Tuesday night to give final approval to an ordinance making changes to the city’s [cq comment=”Longmont’s “]Fair Campaign Practices Act, a measure that takes effect next month. The city’s campaign code was last updated in 2011. One of the changes [cq comment=”will “]caps a candidate’s maximum [cq comment=”total “]fine for violating the campaign finance reporting requirements at $999. The ordinance revises and adds requirements about when candidates must file their periodic reports before and after election day. Candidates for [cq comment=”Longmont’s “]mayor[cq comment=”al”] or city council seats up for election this year can begin circulating petitions on Aug. 6 to get enough signatures to qualify for the November ballot. Candidates for mayor and the at-large seat must collect 50 signatures; candidates for ward council seats must collect 25.
