Power Play on the Colorado Caucus?
Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams said today he will join lawmakers at 2 p.m. on the west steps of the Capitol Thursday (4/21) to announce legislation creating a presidential primary, which some predict will kill our Colorado Caucus just as it did in a previous short trial here.
Why was this years edition of the Colorado Caucus such a disaster?
Poor leadership from the top down.
The State Chairmen of both major political parties announced BEFORE this years Colorado Caucus they would jointly move towards such a plan to kill the system that had been entrusted to them.
The chaos of March 1 resulted.
Our Colorado Caucus, the best chance for the common person to serve in elected public office, has been under attack by powerful forces ever since it was created by Gov. Shafroth and the legislature in a special session in August of 1910.
Why not allow time for consideration of this important chance this summer before introducing legislation? What is the rush?
