Since I'm "the media" who captured and quoted those words, I'll say the conversation didn't last much longer than what I tweeted. She said what she said, I tweeted it, and then the meeting started.
Just gonna add one more and say there wasn't any context that I left out. I got her words. Of course, she may have additional thoughts, but I tweeted what she said. That's my job.
Back to the Holocaust/prairie dog discussion, if anybody has more to say.
Friend thanks Nagle for her apology. "I think that does help to heal the community and the hurt that stemmed from the false equivalency."
Brockett also helped with the statement that Friend/Wallach did.
Friend thanks ADL, JCC, Rose Community Foundation who "reached out"
Nagle: I had a lot more to my letter that I wanted to read in the beginning.
"so you guys can understand the thoughts I would like to have gotten out last Tuesday," Nagle.
"This was a chat b4 council. ... Obviously, we did not have near enough time," Nagle says.
"Tweeting this incomplete conversation was a reckless use of the media ... that spread hatred. "
"Animals and the environment are something I've stood for as a child," Nagle says. "Helping preserve the natural world" is one of the reasons I got on council.
Serial killers start by killing small animals, Nagle says. My question is, "where does it stop?"
Killing cats and dogs is legal in many states, even if they're in perfect, "adoptable" condition. .... 98% of prairie dog habitat has been claimed by humans.
Jewish Nobel Prize laureates have drawn comparison between animal suffering and the Holocaust, Nagle says. She's quoting one of them now.
"If there had been more time before the meeting, this important" point is what I would have shared, Nagle says.

"When we kill animals on a mass scale, we and our children become numb to the atrocities" ... and creates a global consciousness that "life is disposable."
"These are my opinions and my values. ... No one has to agree with them .... But I am allowed to have them."
Brockett: "I really appreciate the statement and the passion and the care you bring to the mistreatment of animals. I appreciate that moral position of yours"
BUT on the media: "They were more or less just quotes. .. In this time of the media being called fake news and enemy of the ppl, I just want to make sure those were just quick quotes tweeted out and not misinformation."
"I'm very uncomfortable" attacking the media. "I think they're just doing their job."
(That was Friend; sorry, moving fast)
Wallach: "As one of the Jewish neighbors who are valued in accordance with this statement, I want to thank everyone on council. ... I understand (Nagle's) passion."
Friend also said she just wants to re-state that council rejects all Holocaust equivalencies.
Wallach: "I'm grateful we could come together on this matter."
"Proper historical referencing of the Holocaust ... which in my view is absolutely the most hateful and vicious and destructive regime in recorded history. Loose comparisons of that regime and those behaviors to almost anything else in the world are simply not acceptable."
Weaver: It's an issue that deserved our undivided attention. Thank you all for working through this.
OK, that's all for this one. Hands are shaking, so I might take a quick break to deep breathe. I'll address later.
OK, back with one correction to the tweet thread above and Nagle's full statement, which I have just transcribed from the video.
First, a correction you might note: She was quoting Edgar Kopfer-Koberwitz, not the unnamed Jewish Nobel Prize winner (who I've since ID'd as Isaac Bashevis Singer).
Full statement is attached.…
Nagle also said, in introducing Part 2 of her statement, that these were "the thoughts that I would have liked to have gotten out last Tuesday with Mark, as this was a chat before council. ...
...We had discussed during the retreat that, you know, we should jump on and have some discussion with each other and, obviously, we did not have near enough time. It at least helps set where I was coming from."
Sorry there aren't any paragraph breaks or anything in it. I wanted to be as exact in transcribing as possible; paragraph breaks might be seen as editorializing.
Nagle used an image of prairie dogs as her Zoom background tonight.
Here is council's statement on Holocaust equivalencies that all council members, Nagle included, voted to support. It will be adopted Feb. 16.…
I feel like there is something else I wanted to note or add...? But I've forgotten.

That's it for the council meeting. Sorry I kinda zoned out on the last couple of issues (city manager search update and city attorney search). I wish I could say it doesn't matter what Nagle said, but it does. It fucking hurts.
I will get over it because I know I did my job. But I am not going to be blamed for her saying something uninformed, hurtful and offensive.
It is my job to report what elected officials say — and unguarded moments offer just as much truth (often more) than what they say when they know people are watching.

I did what I do every single Tuesday. This particular Tuesday, the only thing new was what she said.

Up now: Upstream detention at South Boulder Creek. This has been turned down 3X prior; OSBT just said no thanks. Presentation:…
UGH, looking the least forward to this. Feels like we're just going through the motions, since OSBT already turned it down. Very unlikely council will do different.

This was initially schedule for Jan. 5 but got pushed bc that meeting went too long. My notes from that meeting are as follows:

I hate moving on from this so quickly, but we're jumping straight into COVID. Presentation:…
There was a "short-lived" spike between Christmas and NYE, says Jeff Zayach of BoCo Public Health. Things trending back down since then.
Zayach: "We are now into a place we have the ability to do followup on contract tracing and case investigations. Across the state, looking good."
