Dear Editor:

At GrassRoots TV12, we passionately believe that the health and viability of our community depends on inclusive communal problem solving. Solving our problems as a community starts with an informed and knowledgeable electorate.

Only on GrassRoots TV12 do you get to see, hear and relate to all local candidates and ballot issues on a non-commercial and unbiased. To this end, every local election season GrassRoots TV offers extensive coverage of local candidates and ballot issues: in-depth interviews, access to all candidate debates, forums and Squirm Night, and live election night coverage … approximately 20 programs in all, and each are aired several times in different day parts to reach the entire community.

This year, Brent Gardner-Smith hosts the “ProbeLine” series originated by Tom McCabe. One-hour interviews with candidates are virtually unheard of on television.

ProbeLine is on GrassRoots TV12 this Saturday, Oct. 11:

ProbeLines with Pitkin County Commissioner Candidates: Dee Malone at 9 a.m.; George Newman at 10 a.m.; Bruce Anderson 11 a.m.; Jack Hatfield at Noon; Shellie Roy at 1 p.m.; Michael Owsley at 2 p.m.

ProbeLine with TOSV Mayoral Candidates: Arnold Mordkin at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.; Bill Boineau at 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.

If you value this kind of local election coverage, GrassRoots TV12 needs a little

support from each of our viewers. Governments are not allowed to pay for campaign coverage. No local businesses or political parties have answered our call for support.

That leaves it up to us, individual citizens to fund our own political discussions and access to community debate. Please go to to contribute, watch a live stream of all programming, and find a weekly schedule.

Thanks for watching!

Ellen Winter
