Letter to the Editor: Local political party caucuses March 7

Listen to this post

Dear Editor:

To all Rio Blanco County registered voters: This week a very important event will occur that is both a privilege and a responsibility. You should attend! Yes, you will donate a short bit of your scant time but that time will be like nothing compared to the time politicians will steal from you if they receive free rein resulting from your lack of participation in the democratic process. Do not miss it! The event is the Rio Blanco County Precinct Caucus, Saturday, March 7. This is your opportunity to participate in your chance to choose which candidates will be on your voting ballot, rather than someone else choosing those candidates who will be on your voting ballot. A healthy democracy requires not only that you vote, but that you actively participate in choosing those individuals who will be on your ballot.

Unfortunately, money has a big influence on our elections. Those who make large campaign donations expect undue influence. Fortunately for you, there is another way. That way is your presence at the Rio Blanco County Precinct Caucus.
