I spoke at CoHOPE tonight. Beautiful evening at Clement Park. I seemed to get good vibes. It was a bipartisan event in that most races had both parties. CD1 did not. DeGette was AWOL.
just keeping you informed.
CoHope is an alliance of homeowners' groups in the southern Jefferson County representing over 7000 homes. this is huge since it is all that new area of Jeffco that is now in CD1 for the first time.
coming on the heels of the poll that showed degette's unfavorable rating is 87% among unafilliated voters in CD1, this is a big deal. (i was 65% favorable)
my message was pitch-perfect, if I may say so. my opener was "i'd have been here earlier but the line at chick fil a was so long". the serious part focused on:
-the risk the USA is experiencing (debt, spending.... etc.)
-we deserve a better congress
I will continue to favor non partisan, non political events going forward. strategy is the same: 1) provide a credible alternative 2) show how wrong degette is.
