GOP caucus set for February
The 2012 Pitkin County Republican Precinct Caucuses will be held on Feb. 7 at Aspen High School. Doors open at 6 p.m. for check-in and refreshments. The caucuses will begin at 7 p.m. (check-in will close at that time).
For those who are not familiar with the process in Colorado, the precinct caucuses feature a presidential preference poll and the election of precinct committee members from each of Pitkin County’s 10 precincts. Although the preference poll is nonbinding, the statewide results of the preference poll will attract national attention.
The caucuses are also the first step in selecting delegates to the Republican National Convention. At the caucuses, delegates will be elected to the Pitkin County Republican Assembly, which will take place on Feb. 29 in the conference room at the Pitkin County Library. The county assembly will elect delegates and alternates to the state Republican assembly, which will take place on April 14 in Denver, where delegates and alternates to the national convention will be elected.
We urge all eligible registered Republicans in Pitkin County to attend the Feb. 7 precinct caucuses. To be eligible, a voter must have been registered in his or her Pitkin County precinct by Jan. 9 and must have been registered as a Republican in any jurisdiction as of Dec. 7. To avoid lines at caucus check-in, we encourage preregistration by going to http://www.caucus.cologop.org.

Basalt mayoral candidates Bill Kane and Rob Leavitt said at a Feb. 10 forum they endorsed the town government’s $1.34 million expenditure to expand a riverfront park. Candidate and councilman Bill Infante said not so fast and provided an alternative view.
