First Day of Spring-- We Begin Again!

There will be a join meeting with Denver No Labels and Denver Speakers Corner on Sunday, April 24 at Panera Bread, 13th and Grant here in Denver, just a block from the Capitol.

At our last join meeting in March, the group decided to have a No Labels Hate Free Zone at Denver Speakers Corner each week when it resumes meeting again in Denver Civic Center, pending the approval of the No Labels powers that be, which we will report on at this meeting.

Dottie Lamm has invited Ken Gordon to meet with us, and she's giving a talk on No Labels at the Denver City Club next Tuesday, April 22 that we hope to post here for you.

Dick Sargent was a speaker recently at the Denver IDEA Cafe. As part of what he share, he gave the best short statement about how to get involved to make a real difference:

1.  Google either "Democrats" or "Republicans" and your zip code. Get the phone number for your county office, call them and speak personally to you county chair person.

2.  Tell him or her that you want to get involved, give them your address, and ask for the names and addresses of your precinct committee people. If there is a vacancy (and there usually is) volunteer by saying, "would you like me to help until the next elections?" Then you are on the central committee for your party, any you can make a big difference.

3.  If there are precinct committee people in place, go to their residence, knock on the door, and talk with them face to face. Say something like, "I want to get involved, I'll help you in anyway you want. Would you like me to contact people in my neighborhood."

4.  Get to know all the people in your precinct, at the next election of precinct committee people call them all and volunteer to serve as one of the two precinct committee people. Again, this will make you part of your party's central committe, you can volunteer to serve as district captain.

Spring is a good time for each of us to take a look back and then to refocus on the next step along the path. Let's all do that between now and April 24 when we can share at our No Labels join meeting. Click on the link at the top of this page if you'd like to be with us.
