Jason Phillips 4 years, 10 months ago on Letter: Denver Post's coverage unprofessional

This is an incoherently partisan critique. Steve, go ahead and name one specific policy that has caused Peabody to change their hiring. I'd love to hear it.


Jason Phillips 4 years, 11 months ago on Mitt Romney today in Craig: Obama 'out of excuses'

Tip my cap to Mitt - if he wants to drive to NW Colorado for a campaign stop and happens to get a photo op with one of the school buses then that's fine with me.

I just probably wouldn't have let the buses be used at a political campaign event if I were running the bus garage.


Jason Phillips 4 years, 11 months ago on Mitt Romney … meet Craig, America

"Tears rushed over us."

For a campaign stop?

Ok, Frank Moe, settle down. He's a politician, not the savior.


Jason Phillips 4 years, 11 months ago on Moffat County officials discuss encouraging healthier lifestyles

yampafamily - while I share your desire to see the community get healthier... I don't feel like the solution is more sidewalks or trails. That is an urban city problem. You have an abundance of options available in Craig - you already listed the two tracks, you've got Loudy Simpson to the south, the sand rocks to the North, Ridgeview to the West, Cedar Mountain is a quick drive away... Moreover, I think the town is already ideal for leisurely strolls - traffic isn't bad, there are plenty of sidewalks and the city keeps everything pretty well maintained relative to their big city counterparts.

I feel like there are a lot of valid complaints about Craig, but access to outdoor exercise is the least of the problems. If you aren't accessing it, that is on you.


Jason Phillips 4 years, 11 months ago on Craig City Council reacts to Victor Tarango

I think the process worked in this instance. The council didn't rush to judgement, they attempted to give Tarango the benefit of the doubt, and he proved himself unworthy of a second chance. Now it's game over for Tarango.

I was in favor of letting him re-apply after some sort of cooling off period as I thought there was at least some possibility that it was an oversight or misunderstanding. Our governmental process ought to allow for those possibilities - and I'm glad they did. But then it became clear that this man is either unwilling or unable to play by the rules, in which case the council came to the appropriate decision.


Jason Phillips 4 years, 11 months ago on Council again denies proposed nightclub owner

I wanted to give Tarango the benefit of the doubt a few weeks ago... But he is clearly incompetent at best and dishonest at worst, so I will no longer defend him.


Jason Phillips 4 years, 11 months ago on Night club owner seeking council approval

ranger520 - does that apply until the end of time? Because he failed to disclose a couple of misdemeanors he should never be considered for a liquor license?

I'm not even sure I agree with background checking people to obtain a liquor license. As someone else stated, all licenses are subject to revocation if they are misused, so his background is almost a moot point.
