Liveable Boulder and Better Boulder duke it out

Jann Scott at plan Boulder event where Livable Boulder and Better Boulder face off.

Posted by Boulder Channel One on Friday, August 28, 2015

Late yesterday we got  word of a debate between Livable Boulder and A Better Boulder in the Boulder Creek  room at the Boulder Public  Library. It was arranged by… well, we are not sure . Plan Boulder said they set up the debate. One boulder and Better boulder said they arranged it. And everyone said that Liveable Boulder was divisive except Livable Boulder who asked ” why is the other side being so mean”.
See 3 Videos here on Face Book 
We would have liked to heard the debate, but by start time there was a line out the door. Hundreds were being turned away including our news department who couldn’t get within 10′ of the room. They should have held the event in the Library theater. They are definitely going to have to redo it. The overflow crowd could not hear a thing.  Former city council woman Allyn Fienberg stood next to our reporter and pointed out everyone who was in the attendance. They included half the city council, environmentalists, activists and boomers. Mostly boomers.  There were hardly any millennials in the room.

The techies who made so much noise about how horrible Boulder is did not show up. Becky Boone who F Bombed her way to to notoriety at Ignite Boulder made a brief appearance. ( we thought the city fired her). She told  Millennials that they better vote in this next election if they want the Livable Boulder initiative to fail, showed up for all of 30 seconds and then disappeared. Her peeps were not there.

Former Boulder City Councilwoman Allyn Feinberg talks about protecting Boulder… at butter Boulder, 1 Boulder Boulder tomorrow plan Boulder event at Boulder library Boulder Boulder Boulder Boulder Boulder Boulder Boulder

Posted by Boulder Channel One on Friday, August 28, 2015

Allyn Fienberg told us ” they never show up and don’t vote either.  They represent 20 % of the population and they come and go every semester… so they are not real citizens and they don’t act like it. … They want to live in Boulder , they want to change Boulder. They want  their Big tech companies to take over the city, but they don’t respect Boulder…….People live in Boulder because of it’s beauty…its access to the national forests and parks…. but we don’t want to see Better Boulder destroy the downtown area with big tech companies ” Fienberg also said that tech companies  could easily move to Gunbarrel Industrial park and have plenty of housing there.

Absent were startup  gurus Andrew Hyde, his boss Brad Feld and their kids. Andy Shulties  former councilman  who runs Better Boulder was there, but left half way through.. that is not a good sign.

Feinberg said that Will Toor was on the wrong side of the issues.. namely” letting each neighborhood decide it’s own growth”… People standing around Fienberg chimed in “it will be a disaster”.

Former Boulder mayor Will Toor tries to explain a better boulders position at plan boulder a better Boulder Boulder library 1 Boulder tomorrow Boulder event

Posted by Boulder Channel One on Friday, August 28, 2015

Will Toor former Mayor and founder of Better Boulder, said that Boulders best years were ahead of us and that Livabile boulder was standing in the way of progress and growth.

Several attendees said that Brad Feld ,  Tech Stars were pouring millions of dollars into A Better Boulder to stop Livable Boulders no growth initiative. Feinberg said “follow the money ”  Feld has flooded downtown Boulder with his startup companies taking over all of the office space. Now they want the rest of the city. Feinberg said that they are  relative newcomers to town like Feld completely miss the essence of Boulder… what happens here is Companies start here and then when the get big enough they move. They don’t get to take over the city or they move to an office park or build within our rules.

With a cool atmosphere, clients like Harley Davidson, and segments of employees that have the title of “hive” this is one of the coolest new startups to be made on boulder. I went there today for the party.
One of their most interesting features: a catapult that launches old, biodegradable food off of a balcony, for the benefit of animals and unpaid interns living in the woods.

The fiasco of “Boom Boom Boone” F-Bombing  her heart out from the stage of The Boulder Theater as an official city contractor speaking on behalf of the city made the city manager pull her hair out. Any denials by Boone  only made it worse. She was supposed to bring the community together not start WWIII.
Code for America was an an ill conceived choice from the beginning. Here is why.

Becky “boom boom ” Boone

Bringing code for America to Boulder was the idea of pro growth Venture Capitalist Brad Feld. Boulder Startup Community Members: Help Fund the Code for America Fellowship  He chipped in $75,000 to bring  F U America to Boulder. But the city never reveals that anywhere.  Feld is the main proponent of A Better boulder, too. They are a lobbying group that want to see more businesses , taller buildings and more crowding down town. No one reveals that.

So when the city says that Becky Boones F-Bomb speech became divisive pitting pro-growth and no growth groups agin each other, well it was part of a larger plan.  She was designed to do that. She was hand picked , bought and paid for by Brad Feld and his agents to push their Growth Agenda. Another problem is there is no transparency from the city or from F– for America concerning Brad Feld.

Brad Feld He gave $75,000. to Code for America

 Question: How much money does Brad Feld or his investments have invested in Code for America ??  Feld has so many investments , does anyone know?? City spokesperson Patrick Vonkeyserling said that Code F— America “Brad is one of several investors. The total raised privately by CFA is $41k.”  But what about the $75,000. ??

Having Boone Speak at Startup week Boulder and then at Ignite Boulder was another move by the pro-growthers to spin her supposed objectivity.  These events are run by event planner Andrew Hyde who was brought to Boulder in 2006 by Brad Feld to run Tech Stars one of Felds VC engines. Feld has backed Hyde from day one.  Their plan is to turn Boulder into Palo Alto California. More specifically Downtown Boulder.  Everything is smoke and mirrors with these guys.

Some media want to make a big deal that  city staff knew Boone was going plead   F— F— F— 8 times from the stage of the Boulder Theater and then put it on you tube.  But the city never said that their staff knew….. exactly  but Patrick Vonkeyserling City of Boulder PIO today said “The email pdf shows there was knowledge of the f bomb” presumable by someone on staff.  But did the city know that “Car Bomb Becky” was going to blow herself up on stage with 8 invective F bombs. ?? #hmmog!

Jennifer Pahlka with he femne fatale looks nearly sunk the company.

Meanwhile , the  Code for America Executive Director Jennifer Pahlka, tried to weasel her way out of this mess by saying:  Well she said it was just her opinion Oh nonsense!

So the city slapped Pahlka with a $15,000 dollar fine.  Code calls it a donation. Bull shit. It’s a fine. Then Pahlka goes on to imply that f bombing is the way to engage hard to reach segments of our population.

It is any wonder that the city did not hold Code in violation of contact and fire them last week.

To top it off Twitter exploded with it usual amount of hate speech from Boulder Startup employees aimed at no-growthers and media covering this story beginning with Boulder Neighbors.  All of this just what the city did not want. Code for America was supposed to bring the city together not blow the place up.

The Irony of all this is no one has said F— on TV more than me. The city shut down public access TV over my use of the F— word. ( I am now on channel 22 run by the school district where there is no F—s allowed)  But I did not “work for the city nor was I a contractor for the city” If I was I would have followed city decorum. Do I really have a problem with Becky Boone using the F— word at Ignite Boulder ?? I have a problem with the dishonesty of Ignite Boulder, Andrew Hyde, Brad Feld, A better Boulder and Code for America. In this case I side with the city staff all the way.  They really are trying to do what’s best and keep us protected from the minions of developers who would turn our Paradise into a parking lot. — Jann Scott

Below is the city full press release.
City, Code for America complete reviews into Ignite Boulder presentation

The City of Boulder and Code for America today announced that each organization has concluded independent fact finding reviews about the May 13 presentation at Ignite Boulder regarding the authorization of the presentation and potential city staff involvement.

While the city does not believe that formal authorization occurred, the review showed that some city staff members were aware of the planned Ignite Boulder presentation and provided input on potential topics, and one member of staff assisted with and reviewed the presentation prior to Becky Boone’s delivery. The review by staff may have led Ms. Boone to conclude she had city approval.

Jane Brautigam Boulder city manager is hopping dam mad and slapped a $15,000 fine on Code.

“Boulder has very high standards for the professionalism of its staff and strong core values that every city employee is expected to uphold,” said City Manager Jane Brautigam. “The failure of a city employee to honor the city’s commitment to respect all residents and their diverse perspectives on local issues is unacceptable, and the city will address this personnel matter seriously.”

“Boulder remains committed to working with Code for America to implement new engagement tools, and we believe the final report will include additional opportunities to engage every member of our community on a variety of issues,” said Brautigam. “It is unfortunate that the progress made under this project has been tainted by a divisive presentation. In the coming days we will be working to restore the community’s trust in city government and to take appropriate actions to ensure city procedures and standards are met going forward.”

Code for America also apologized for the tone of the presentation and remains committed to increasing Boulder’s opportunities to engage more people in local government.

“Our work in Boulder to help city staff diversify public input on housing was designed to supplement the already-planned engagement process spelled out in Housing Boulder with a variety of approaches consistent with Code for America’s engagement standard,” said Code for America Executive Director Jennifer Pahlka. “This past week, that work has been overshadowed by a focus on a talk given by the Code for America Senior Fellow working on the project, Becky Boone. Code for America works in city halls around the country, and we train our staff and fellows to understand and respect the professional norms of government and to use language that supports our partners. In this case, though Becky clarified she was not speaking for the city, it created a problem for our partners for which we apologize.”

“The ability for all to participate is a core value of government and of our work with the City of Boulder and around the country. It is also a core value of the generous private donors who contributed to the project,” said Pahlka. “Code for America has been working for the past several months to encourage all the citizens of Boulder to provide input on local housing discussions. While the intent of the Ignite Boulder presentation was to engage more people in the conversation, some interpreted it to take sides, and that does not reflect the inclusive approach that city staff and Code for America staff have taken throughout this project. Code for America believes that government can work for the people, by the people, in the 21st century – if everyone gets involved. We are eager for the focus to return to the important and innovative work that the city is doing and to the share the outcomes.”
Pahlka said to underscore its commitment to inclusive engagement and support the city’s commitment, Code for America will contribute to the city $15,000 in training, education, and additional software as a service and open source technical support to continue the use of some of the tools that have helped reach a wider audience in the project so far to assist the city to continue this pioneering work.

“Engaging the full community, especially hard-to-reach members, is important and critical work. We are committed to continuing to help the City of Boulder tackle this and ongoing community engagement work,” said Pahlka.

Emails regarding city staff input and contributions to the May 13 Ignite Boulder presentation have been released to the media.
