Here is a comment from the Steamboat Pilot on April 9, 2019 regarding the west Steamboat annexation made by Jason Lacy, President of Steamboat Springs City Council:

Council President Jason Lacy asked the community to keep the annexation discussion positive.

“It’s really important that the community engages with this in a respectful manner,”  Lacy said. “If we were to resort to personal insults and childish jabs — the sort of things that we sometimes see, especially on our national political scene — I think that would be a real shame. I think it’s really up to us as a community to agree to disagree in the right way. I think we can do that. I think everyone’s capable of doing that.”
