George Sherman

I want to thank all those Democrats who by their numbers and enthusiasm made our Summit County Assembly for this election year such a success last Friday evening at the Summit Middle School. Special appreciation goes to Mil Plant who skillfully organized attendance from our many county projects, and to Nancy Sherman who – with Mil – provided plentiful refreshments for the long evening. As a measure of the importance of the occasion, candidates and their representatives from all over the state came to make their pitch for our endorsement.

The spirit of unity and close attention to what these visitors had to say was an exercise in participatory Democracy at its best. We elected a record 23 delegates to the Colorado State Assembly in Denver, June 1, where the slate for state and national offices in the November election will be addressed.

For our part, Summit County Democrats unanimously expressed their endorsement of the following Democrats for the election Nov. 5:

Tom Strickland – for U.S. Senator for the state of Colorado

Mark Udall – for reelection to the U.S. House of Representatives

Rollie Health – for governor of the state of Colorado

Ken Salazar – for attorney general of the state of Colorado

Joan Fitz-Gerald – for reelection to Colorado House of Representatives

Denise Steiskal – for reelection to Summit County Assessor

That is a formidable line-up. Once again, a heart-felt thank you to all my fellow Democrats for beginning the election season with such a rousing kick-off in Summit County.
