The Elbert County Democratic Party was honored to have Morgan Carroll, chair of the Colorado Democratic Party, participate at our monthly meeting on Saturday, April 8, 2017.
Morgan shared with us some of the initiatives the state party is pursuing as well as some specific suggestions of how the state and our county parties can work together.
Among the most positive ideas that she and we agreed on is to “adopt on the margin”.
Specifically, this would involve targeted assistance in particular races outside Elbert County to add enough additional effort (door-knocking, phone banking, sign waving, etc.) to turn a close race in the Democrat’s favor. It is our belief that our efforts can mean the difference between winning and losing.
In the Colorado legislature, we are one seat short of a majority in the senate, and many school board races are tightly contested between those with progressive agendas and those who want to turn back the hands of time. Douglas and Jefferson counties are good examples of this.
So, join us to form teams of 4-6 who can go into nearby areas and campaign on behalf of those candidates who need a little extra boost to get over the hump to victory.
The officers elected are:
