Letter: Caucus collaboration

Special thanks to all the volunteers who took the initiative to put out the fires and make the caucus in Basalt run as smoothly as possible. It could not have been done without you! Kudos to the speakers and the younger generation for participating in your democracy with such passion along with your neighbors. We all appreciate Teak Simonton making the trek from Eagle through the canyon to aid us, giving up her right to caucus. Thanks to everyone for your patience and making the caucus a success.

Unfortunately, we’d run out of time to discuss Democratic platform issues. I urge you all to look into the single-payer health care plan that will be on the ballot in November as Amendment 69. Please check out ColoradoCare.org to become informed about this groundbreaking proposal. Thanks again.
