Correction of News Story

The Colorado Community Media reported that our Convention results "Represents a swing from the March 1st state caucus, in which Sanders emerged with nearly 60% of the vote to Clinton's 40%"  Although these numbers are correct for the state, they do not reflect the Douglas County Democratic Party's caucus results. In Douglas County, Sanders received 49.68% and Clinton received 49.58%.  You can check these results yourself at www.coloradocaucus.com.  We apologize for any confusion this article has caused and we will be seeking a correction from Colorado Community Media.

Republicans confuse members’ personal candidate preference for party endorsement

Republicans engage in “”gotcha” politics
 
Douglas County, CO – The Douglas County Democratic Party (DCDP) has not endorsed candidates for the Douglas County School Board election and any statement to the contrary is false. There is no process for officially endorsing candidates in the Douglas County Democratic party. We believe discussion of endorsements by the Democratic Party is an attempt to divert the conversation away from the important issue of public education in Douglas County.

Message from the Chair

There is just a few days to go before the ballots are counted and we know the outcome of the Douglas County School Board election.

This year, as in years past, every vote counts.

As a community, the controversy around what’s happening in our schools, to our teachers, parents and students, has taken a toll on all of us.

It’s been a long fight, and so many of us have worked so hard for so long, it seems as if we’ll never reach our goal.

But, things are changing. You can see it in the people who have come together to fight the current Board, and the board members who waste taxpayer money and deny our constitutional rights.

False GOP Claims Cloud School Board Race

False information and irresponsible “fear” politics are once again in play as Douglas County gears up for another potentially controversial school board election. In the latest release of inaccuracies by the county’s Republican Party, an email claims that pro-education candidates have been endorsed by the Democratic Party.

The email, sent out by Douglas County GOP Chair Tanne Blackburn, calls on party members to stress that falsehood in conversations with voters.

“The Douglas County Democrats have always followed written party policy in nonpartisan races,” said Mike Jones, Chair, Douglas County Democrats. “Our party has not and will not officially endorse any candidates in this race. To say that we have or will is simply false information and irresponsible politics.”

Message from the Chair - April 2014

March was a very busy month for Democrats in Douglas County, following an equally busy February.

In addition to our regularly scheduled events, March started off with the final training sessions for Caucus Facilitators and a Meet and Greet with Senator Mark Udall. Caucus was held, with a lot of attention paid to resolutions for our party platform. Andrew Romanoff was in Highlands Ranch for a well attended house party. The Clinton Carter dinner was very successful both socially and financially. Jamie LaRue gave an insightful speech and Jenny Koch talked about the state party’s plans for the upcoming election. Attendees heard from Andrew Romanoff, Vic Meyers, Don Quick, CU Regent Joe Neguse, Naquetta Ricks and Cameron Bean on behalf of Senator Mark Udall. CD6 had their Central Committee meeting in preparation for their Assembly next month. Douglas County Dems, House Districts and Senate Districts held their assemblies on the same day. The assemblies were visited by Governor Hickenlooper, Senator Mark Udall, Betsy Markey, Vic Meyers and Andrew Romanoff. Mitch Wright, Chair of CD6 and Dianne Bailey, Chair of CD4 attended. I closed out the month with a Metro Chairs meeting downtown. A special thanks to those who worked the long hours to make all these events possible.
