Dear Editor:

At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 6, we are hosting U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet for a summer fundraising fiesta at our home at 1500 Silver King Drive off Cemetery Lane.

This is a perfect opportunity to meet Sen. Bennet and get his take on many of the pressing issues facing our fellow Coloradans. Please join us for intriguing conversation, delicious food and cold drinks. Tickets begin at $50. Please RSVP: for more information or contact me at or at 920-4969.

Although only recently appointed to fill former Sen. Salazar’s seat, Michael Bennet has already become a respected U.S. senator. Michael showed the courage of his convictions when he championed the public option, and he told CNN that he would vote yes on health care reform even if it could cost him his Senate seat.

Michael’s background as superintendent of the Denver Public Schools has given him tremendous experience and insight into the challenges we face in educating our children. My husband Cavanaugh and I are ardent supporters of Sen. Bennet and look forward to helping spread the word about his thoughtful, reasoned and practical approach to legislating. We invite Aspenites to come meet him to see why we are voting for Sen. Michael Bennet in the Aug. 10 primary.
