Successful Fundraising Dinner in Crestone for the Saguache County Dems!

This weekend we had a Voter Canvass training in Moffat and then our first annual Saguache County Fundraising Dinner in Crestone! About 60 people came for Cinco De Mayo, and it was a great success!

Our State Chair Morgan Carroll was our keynote speaker. She talked about our Democratic platform and how it really differs from the GOP, and how to regain the majority in the next few years. Our executive director Pilar Chapa was there too!

Warmest thanks to everyone who came and helped out~ Kevin Noland, Barbara Tidd and Lynne Thompson and especially Tshering Dorji who made an amazing and elaborate Mexican Dinner!

Eileen Wilfong was there and said:Great gathering! Morgan Carroll is a grounded, clear, and comprehensive speaker. Very grateful for such inspiring vision and leadership.”
