A Voice of Colorado No. 244 Version 5.0:

A public suggestion by Loveland City Council member Richard W. Ball, who presently represent Ward I, to restrict Free Speech resulted in a number of communications from understandably concerned citizens in Loveland who find his contempt for the First Amendment of the United States of America Constitution to be unacceptable.

Perhaps a recall is in order, and the election of a candidate to office who will respect Free Speech.

A Voice of Colorado No. 234 Version 5.0:

The pursuit of elected office in Loveland, CO. continues to develop. Jeremy Jersvig, presently the chairman of the Loveland Planning Commission, and resident of Ward I in Loveland, recently announced his intention to fill the seat being vacated by Troy Krenning. Mr. Jersvig worked on Mr. Krenning’s campaign when he ran for elected office four years ago.

Mr. Jersvig may have competition for his pursuit because Ward I resident Lenard Larkin, who also acquired a candidate packet from the City Clerk’s Office, has expressed interest in the seat.

The top two issues for Mr. Jersvig’s campaign are public safety and economic development, which he has said have seen changes in the five years he has lived in Loveland.

If elected he would advocate a focus on attracting and retaining more primary employers and less emphasis on retail development. He would also discourage economic incentives because he favors free markets.

Mr. Jersvig is now serving in a second three-year term on the Planning Commission.

His previous experiences include service in the United States Navy and his current employment in the Larimer County Assessor’s Office.
