Ah another libtardigan. This eco-whackjob was also found passed out flat on his back, drunk and disorderly, in the city plaza the night before the Novemeber election. The Orion covered his blatant stupidity and futile attempts at cover up:

He's an idiot extraordinaire, and a liar to boot. I remember listenign to him during the campiagn on the local radio when he was interviewed...he could not carry a coherent thought.

What's worse are the thousands of idiots that voted for him as potential city councilor in the last election.

....but will Ann Schwab and the rest of the libtards boot him off the planning commission for breaking the law....nooo of course not. He's "saving the earth".

These people make me wanna puke.

Judging from the picture, the hippy actually wasn't "standing up" for what he believed in, he was "sitting" like an Indian.

Why are we cutting down trees to make room for more cars? Crazy.

Thanks Mark. Your act shines light on the fact that despite all their sustainable talk, it is still business as usual down at City Hall.

I'm not from Cottonwood. I'm from Chico. I just wanted to write that since it indicates "Cottonwood" below my name.

Mr. Herrera was exercising what our founding fathers said was a God given right. Let it be.

In 2009, we cut down 2.9 million trees and sent them to China, which sent us back furniture, plywood and other stuff.

I'm glad the city is FINALLY putting in a traffic calming measure in such a highly active pedestrian, bike, and car use (mixed use) intersection. Now, when I'm at the Farmers' Market, I won't have to worry so much about getting hit by a car coming from the blind curve over the bridge when attempting to cross the street. Yes, we still drive cars in down town Chico so why not make it safer for peds and bikes? Ironically, this round-about may save Mark's life if he chooses to bike after dark at that intersection. Until cars are outlawed, let's support city action that moves toward slowing the
d a m n things down!

Fewer cars on the road would accomplish the same thing and save Mark's children and grandchildren.

Progressives use non-violence.
"Conservatives" shoot O.B GYNs, firebomb womens clinics, and show up to places were the president is speaking carrying their beloved AR-15s.
Excuse me but who is more "wacko"?

So, why did you nominate Herrera?
Why didn't you just run yourself?

Yes, I heard that, too. Unlike all of the others who went to the studio for a one on one interview, he phoned in. You could hear his puppet masters telling him what to say and when to say it.

What's your point? We sell rice, walnuts, almonds and wood to China. All are crops.
