Over 50 people, nearly half of whom were first-time guests, turned out on a cold and snowy Tuesday night at the Smoky Hill Library to meet candidates John SampsonArthur CarlsonJohn LyonsMatt Arnold and a surrogate for Kathleen Conti and Brian Davidson, all of whom spoke briefly about their respective candidacies. Lou Schroeder spoke from his position as a Classical Liberal Democrat and about his fine work for the Colorado Union of Taxpayers.

John Ransom, from warmed up the group in his inimitable manner with his funny and insightful commentary on the state of the nation, the presidency, and what we all can do about it. Next, Leslie D. White, from Americans for Prosperity, handed out their EXcellent Citizen's Action Handbook, and shared the vision and mission of AFP while talking about the nuts and bolts ofGrassrootsradio Colorado, er, I mean, grassroots activism. Leslie committed to work with us to set up committees and groups to turn intention to action. Everyone present agreed that we could share their contact information with AFP.

The night ended with John Andrews entertaining and inspiring story and vision as he shared insights from his remarkable life, his excellent new book, Responsibility Reborn, A Citizen's Guide to the Next American Century, and from his ongoing activism and influence as a proud and respected Conservative Republican and President of The Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University. John signed copies of his book, and two hours were clearly not enough. The library literally had to throw us out!

Thanks to all for a fast-moving, action-packed and informative evening. See you next month! Details to come.

It was a packed night of topics but we must find time to get business done as well.  The Balanced Budget Committee has had the Arapahoe Tea Party Petition completed and ready for delivery to members for signatures for two months now but our speakers are filling all business time.  We can have speakers at every meeting this year and that's fine, it gets butts in the seats but we are here to get things done as well.
