Help to start a new neighborhood group:

The Small Business Chamber is creating a new Job-Aid for startups. For a copy attend an SBCC meeting in Denver. For more see 

If there was a healthy small group in every neighborhood it would restore the grassroots. Watch for more here about this soon.

Election Day

RTD University Station
Denver--It used to be that going to the polls on election day was the great American tradition.

No more.

Today the ballots are mailed out weeks ahead of time. What effect does this have on who we elect?

It heavily favors the powerful forces that have the money to do continuous marketing for their candidates and issues.

Mail elections appear to be grassroots-friendly. They are not.

The powerful forces that want to rid us of going to the polls in our neighborhood say the mail ballot is much more convenient, that it's more tolerant of those who just can't get to the polls.

The fact is those who wanted to mail their ballot could before. The convenience was there for those who wanted it and needed it.

Now we all have to vote by mail. Going to the neighborhood polling place used to be a convenient way to stay in touch with neighbors.

No more.

Are you a good neighbor? Do you want to be?

CALL (720)495-4949 WE DON'T READ EMAIL.

Do you live in a good neighborhood?

 Whether it is good or not, do you want to help make it even better?

If you do, we invite you to join us in this new effort.

We are forming a network of people across Colorado who want to be good neighbors by taking a couple of hours each month to:

 #1) greet newcomers as they move into your neighborhood; and  #2) email all your neighbors each month to help them learn, initially about our wonderful Colorado Caucus. (What's that? Search on Google or on click here.)

As you may know, our Colorado Caucus is the best chance for your neighborhood to be represented by the best people, very often the average, ordinary person who reads the newspaper and votes, but other than that may not have had much if any partisan political experience.

Will you help us? Just takes a minute:

I believe most Colorado voters have
no idea of the consequences of 107/8.

If you love our Colorado Caucus, we need your help now!

As I'm sure you are aware, the passage of Propositions 107 and 108, pounded down voters throats with a million dollar ad campaign that was very misleading, along with the Election Rules that are currently being proposed will mean the eventual death of the Colorado Caucus, pushed through a special session of the legislature in 1911 to clean up Colorado politics.

If we form a political committee Secretary of State Wayne Williams has given us until July 18 to tell him why the new rules shouldn't be adopted, of course, we can each individually tell him between now and July 18. Whether we form the committee or not and I hope you will, each and every one of you reading this right now who loves the Colorado Caucus, the best chance the common person has of serving in elected public office, write Wayne and tell him why.

We are going to hold an exploratory committee meeting to consider if we should reinstitute Save the Caucus in the form Ruth Prendergast, the Admiral, Dick Sargent, Phil Perrington and others led it to victory over misguided Amendment 29 in 2002. Despite being outspent 1400 to 1, they won big time, 60% to 40%

If you'd be willing to serve on the committee, please rsvp yes or no for the exploratory meeting that is being hosted by the Small Business Chamber of Commerce at Pete's University Park tomorrow, Thursday, at 1 p.m. Please rsvp at

Your rsvp yes or no right now will guarantee that you will receive an invitation to our kickoff party and dance which will also honor the memory of one of the biggest fans of the Colorado Caucus. It's going to be huge! So rsvp now for tomorrow, July 13, at

If you have any questions please call me if you must, but much better to attend tomorrow or read the announcement that will be made there about the party if we do decide to go ahead. Please rsvp now. Thanks!
