NEXT LAD MEETING: Defend, Promote, DO Democracy: CAUCUS! CANDIDATES! CLEAN! TOMORROW, Wednesday, March 2, 6:30pm, via zoom. Last month we showcased Democracy Defenders AG Weiser and SOS Griswold. This month — with CAUCUS on THIS SATURDAY, MARCH 5! — we’ll have Amy Weinstein, BCDP Vice Chair, give us an inside look at what’s up for caucus. Lots of planning since redistricting — making caucus this year SIMPLER FOR YOU (no preference poll, but will elect or re-elect precinct leaders — 2 hours max. You’ll need to be registered as a Democrat. Look up your Voter ID and new precinct number, and REGISTER for Caucus, here).
And it’s hard not to be sobered by the deeper meaning of direct, grassroots democracy, given what’s happening in Ukraine…
THEN, we’ll have the CLEAN SPOTLIGHT (Community Legislative Early Action Network) with Marilyn Hughes. She’ll give us updates on exciting legislation as it makes its way into Colorado law.
FINALLY, it wouldn’t be an LAD meeting without YOUR FIRST LOOK at CANDIDATES!* This week, we’ll have Karen Beslin, candidate for US Senate, and Boulder County Commissioner candidates, Ashley Stolzmann, Elaina Shively, and Lisa Widdikind.
SO JOIN US, and please tell a friend! Wednesday, March 2, 6:30pm, via zoom. (Email us for the zoom link at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Send me the Zoom link!” in the subject line. We will also send the link out in this blast twice on Wednesday, 9am & 6pm.)
