NEW:
Join the Elbert County Democrats on Saturday, June 4 as we participate in the Elizabash/Stampede parade. Parade starts at 10am. We will be decorating the float at Running Creek Elementary's parking lot at 8am. See you then!

The Dems' will be having Socials: the 2nd Saturday of every month from 3-5pm in the community room at the Elizabeth Library....an informal gathering of fellow EC Dems to get to know each other.


Bob Seay, candidate for Congressional District 4 (running against Ken Buck).

You can read more about Bob's campaign, volunteer and donate at www.bobseayforcolorado.org

We admire a person who will accept a tough challenge...running blue in a red district...however, Mr. Buck does not represent the interests of the majority of Eastern Coloradans, so we need to do everything we can to help Bob win this election in 2016 and send someone to Congress who will actually fight for our needs...not the needs of the corporations which support Mr. Buck."
