Colgan is to be commended for his attempt to help his fellow Chicoans.
His letter shows none of the small mindedness typical of many losers in the election. He is the only losing candidate.
The guy has class.
But I don't care!
I can only find fault.
I can only criticize.
I am a hate-filled dirtbag.

I am not, of course, not trying to prove anything. I simply question Quentin's math. He made the assertion, I would like to see how he arrived at it.
Certainly you have the skills and astuteness to reproduce his calculation. Please expound in detail showing how that figure is arrived at. Or ask Quentin to do it for you. I would like to see his method for arriving at the figure that 1 in 10 votes were cast for him.
In my previous posts I have even gone as far as to assume that this figure is true. While I do not find it at all unreasonable that 1 in 10 voters in Chico are a few fries short of a happy meal I conjecture that at best that figure is a bit (possibly by a factor of two) too optimistic.
Please note that I have also already accepted, for the purpose of argument, Quentin's claim without qualification and have based my conclusion on his own number.
Perhaps I should lead you through it again?
OK, here we go ...
1) If 1 in 10 voters cast a ballot for Mr. Colgan then that means 9 on 10 voters did not.
2) I completely and absolutely concur with Mr. Colgan's conclusion (as expressed in his letter) based upon this figure whether it is accurate or not.
3) With 9 out of 10 people declining to cast a ballot for Quentin Colgan and rejecting his bid to serve on the council it is perfectly reasonable to assert (in Mr. Colgan's own words), "that a significant number of Chicoans want reason to be a part of the decision-making process."
Are you following me here? If not, please feel free to ask any questions to make it more clear. My door is always open. There is not such thing as a stupid question.

If you had a backbone, you could ask him yourself.

Following your rambling "reasoning" with no problem and that's why I'm ROFLMAO. Such fun!
