Letter: Fitz-gerald to D.C.

Cassie Perlmutter
Vail, CO Colorado

Tuesday, registered Eagle County Democrats will convene at the Eagle County Courthouse (6-6:30 p.m. registration; caucus at 7) to pick candidates. The candidate I urge caucus goers to support is former State Sen. Joan Fitz-gerald for the 2nd Congressional District.

Joan Fitz-gerald has worked doggedly on behalf of Coloradans, first as a Jefferson County party worker, then as an elected county clerk (in an historically Republican district); and, finally, as a State Senator for eight years ” which included being the first female Senate president. She has been successful through sheer determination and shoe leather. I equate her “fire in the belly” to another legislator I deeply respect and who, I believe, is serving us well: my brother, Rep. Ed Perlmutter.

Please send Joan Fitz-gerald to Washington. She’ll do us proud.
