Calling all Eagle County Democrats
We’ve learned through history and our recent elections that participation in democracy matters. We also know that all politics are local.
I am writing to ensure that registered Democrats who reside in the unincorporated areas of Eagle County and Basalt are aware of the upcoming Eagle County Democratic Party reorganization meeting happening today at the Eagle County Building at 500 Broadway St. in Eagle. Sign-in and light refreshments will start at 5:30 p.m. The call to order begins at 6 p.m.
Elections will be held for county party officers and members of the 3rd Congressional and state Central committees. Additionally, we’ll be identifying potential 2014 candidates for Congressional District 3, Senate District 5, Eagle County treasurer and sheriff, District 3 commissioners (Basalt, El Jebel, Eby Creek Mesa and Gypsum) and outlining other ideas and projects. If you are considering running for any of these offices, you should plan on attending.
This is a great opportunity for the voices of the Roaring Fork Valley to be heard, to elect representation from our side of Eagle County and for people to learn and become part of the grassroots processes of democracy.
If you would like to carpool to Eagle or desire further information, please call me at 970-704-9535.
No matter your affiliation, please partake in our democracy in whatever way you can. There are many issues and any number of ways to make your voice heard from phone calls and emails to signing petitions, contributing or volunteering.
A simple tool to use, which allows our representatives to see your opinion in commentaries and interactive populated maps is http://www.popvox.com.
If you’d like to learn more or teach your children in an interactive way (the three branches of government), please visit Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s website http://www.icivics.org.
I hope to see our Roaring Fork Valley Eagle County Democrats in Eagle today, and I hope that each of you will do what you can to participate and be the change we need to see in the world.
