BOB SEAY (pronounced “See”), is running against KEN BUCK(R) for Congress here in the 4th District.Here’s your chance to MEET BOB, and see why we’re proud to support him in this effort — and why Congressman Jared Polis (CD2) endorsed Bob as well: “Bob will be a great ally in Congress fighting for college affordability, combating climate change and increasing wages. Colorado Democrats must talk to voters about these shared values and Colorado commonsense solutions all across our state and Bob is the candidate to do it.”

BOB SEAY is a band director that lives in Lamar, adored and respected by his students and the parents of that community. Bob wholeheartedly supports Colorado Care and the local control initiatives of CREED. Bob’s intelligence and down-to-earth demeanor form the foundation of an inspirational candidate to represent all of us in this very large district (CD4 map).

BOB NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT: Check out his website, watch his videos, donate to his campaign, and please, come meet Bob THIS SATURDAY at Roosevelt Park!

THANKS FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!
