Other Events

PLEASE NOTE: The Eagle County Democratic Party does not endorse candidates in contested primaries but we are happy to promote campaign events when they’re held here in Eagle County. We consider them to be good opportunities for our community to get to know our candidates better as election season approaches.

Eagle Flight Days CANVASS KICK-OFF with Jeanne and Kerry!
Team up with Commissioner McQueeney and Senator Donovan as they hit the first doors of the season!
Help them break in their walking shoes, knock on a few (friendly!) doors, and remind voters to get their ballots in. Jeanne and Kerry will show you the ropes if you’ve not canvassed before. THIS is how Democrats WIN in November!
When: Meet Jeanne and Kerry at 2:00 pm on June 23
Where:
Yeti’s Coffee at 300 Broadway in Eagle

Meet Jena!
You’re invited to an event in support of Jena Griswold, candidate for Colorado Secretary of State. As a former election lawyer for a presidential campaign, Jena was inspired to run for Secretary of State to protect the right to vote, bolster cybersecurity in our elections, and stop the flood of dark money in our campaigns.
Jena is uncontested on the primary ballot, and has been endorsed of over 90 elected officials and gubernatorial candidates Cary Kennedy, Jared Polis, and Mike Johnston.

When: Friday, June 29, 2018, 5:30 – 7:00pm

Eagle County Democratic Assembly/Convention, and more…

\"\"

Thursday, March 15th, 2012 6-9pm. Eagle County Building, Eagle CO, Commissioners Meeting Room

Congressman Jared Polis and Congressional Candidate Sal Pace will speak at the county’s Democratic Assembly on Thursday evening. The recent redistricting process handed Eagle County two congressional districts, instead of one. The district line runs through Eagle Vail and takes effect in 2013, based on the outcome of the November 2012 election. Until that time, Congressman Jared Polis will represent the entire county that is currently in District 2.

\"\"

There is already a fierce campaign underway for District 3, currently held by Republican Congressman Scott Tipton from Cortez. Challenger Sal Pace is a state representative and former Democratic House Minority Leader from Pueblo. A large portion of Eagle County will be in District 3, including El Jebel and Basalt, and Dotsero east to Eagle Vail.

The assembly is open to the public. Additional events will include approval of the party platform (delegates please check your e-mail for a platform survey) and election of delegates from the party caucuses to the state, congressional and other conventions. Additionally, candidates for county commissioner, including incumbent Jon Stavney and health policy consultant Jill Ryan, will be nominated. Candidates for district attorney, the state house of representatives, and CU regent are also expected to speak.
