City council to vote again on backyard hens - your support needed!

Now that we are nearing the end of 2010, the Longmont City Council is due to vote again on the backyard hen ordinance. The more pro-chicken folks we can get at the following city council meetings mentioning that they support chickens and why, the better.

The meetings that we need pro-chicken support will be held at:
7 p.m. Tuesdays, Dec. 21, 2010 and Jan. 18, 2011
at the City Council Chambers,
Civic Center, 350 Kimbark St., Longmont.

Email Your Support!
If you are interested in emailing the city council members to express your support as well, you can find their email addresses by clicking on the link to the city council, then click on each photo to get the individual email address (or copy and paste the addresses below). The more positive support they receive from Longmont residents, the better our chances that we'll be able to keep our backyard hens.

The current City Council includes: Mayor Bryan Baum, Gabe Santos, Brian Hansen, Katie Witt, Sean McCoy, Sarah Levison, and Alex Sammory.
