Can’t make it?  Go to to learn more.

2) Progressive Pizza Night at 723 Main St.

I was trying to think of what to call this event.  Pepperoni and Politics?  Calzones and Canvassing?  Anchovies and Phone Banking?

If you have a better idea for this title, come on by and give me your suggestion (I already told the Republicans that Sausage and Socialism has already been ruled out).  I mean come on, who wants government pizza?

What: Come make phone calls and knock on doors for our Democratic Candidates and afterwords, join me for Pizza (on me!).

Where: 723 Main St. Longmont

When: Sept. 29 at 5:00pm – 9pm (Pizza at 8:30)

3) How to Help Our Candidates Win (and stop the Tea Party) at 723 Main St.

Just in case you weren’t fired up about the 2010 election season, here is a quote from Tea Partier Glenn Beck:

‘I think there is a handful of people who hate America. Unfortunately for them, a lot of them are losing their homes in a forest fire today.”

—Glenn Beck, on why people who lost their homes in forest fires in California had it coming, ‘The Glenn Beck Program,’ Oct. 22, 2007

4.) Longmont Chamber of Commerce Candidate Forum

How: click here for details and to reserve your (free) seat:

Why: Come show your support for our progressive candidates and listen respectfully to the opposition.  The news often comments on how many supporters come, so show up if you can.

Personal Note:

I know a lot of you are working really hard to elect our candidates.  2008 was a cakewalk compared to 2010 in terms of effort.  But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have time to laugh!  Click on this link to see the CSPAN coverage of Pundit Stephen Colbert’s actual testimony before Congress.  Si se Puede!

Keep the Faith,

Jonathan Singer

Longmont Area Democrats President
