Re: “Engen's return

Who can or will run against Engen in 2017?

I know Harlan Wells has mentioned he might. I can see David "Doc" Moore mounting a challenge, perhaps Champ Edmunds, Susan Cundiff, Bill Murray, and...anyone else?

That's the GOP side. For the Dems, we know Engen needs a primary challenger so he can raise more money in the election cycle. Who might that be, and will they be a serious challenger or a paper tiger?

I hope we can start talking about this more. The city is the most taxed in Montana and we're trying to get a local option sales tax too. Jobs aren't paying that much and it's been that way for years.

I feel it's time for new leadership...but who?

And if Democrats don't "dwell on this failure"...then what?

Re: “Nickeled and dimed

Professional Property Management is one of the worst. I rented from them for several years. One time I was sent a letter telling me that if I didn't remove my outside flower pots in 5 days they would be removed for me and I would be charged. This was around the end of October.

One time they did a routine walkthrough of my apartment. One smoke detector didn't have a battery in it. They then replaced that battery and tried to charge me $90 for this. I went down to the office and after arguing with the office girl for a bit she went to the boss, talked for 5 minutes, and the bill was brought down to $45.

Why that decision was made, I have no idea. I guess it's standard policy to cut bills by 50% if someone argues.

Personally, I believe there is no policy other than ripping off the renter. The group that lobbies on behalf of the rental industry has no problems with this.

Rental insurance is just a racket. There's no need for it, but like Obamacare, it's forced upon us low-income people. No consideration is given to how we pay it. PPM has their own scam where they offer rental insurance at about 20% above market rates. I feel sorry for people that sign up for it.

Check out PPM on Google. Look at all the 1-star reviews they have, reviews that go back for years.

This company cares about no one but itself. I consider them evil, myself, and I urge Missoula renters to bypass them.

Hopefully they'll go out of business one day.

Re: “Respectful correction

I find it odd how much people care about what Dan Brooks has to say.

Re: “Etc.

Do we really think North Dakota Indians are more important than oil? I'm surprised the corporate media is even paying attention to the Standing Rock protests at all.

Re: “Justice and us

I'm sure that man will rape his daughter again. Not during the weekends when he's in jail, of course, but during the week when he's out.

Meanwhile, get caught with pot...well, we'll lock you up for years and throw away the key.

That's American justice.

Re: “The missing piece

If the neighborhood was so park-starved, why weren't funds given to it with the Parks and Trails bond?

Oh, because that area's extremely low income and doesn't really matter to the higher-ups in the city. Ask the residents of Mary Avenue, or that stretch of South.
