Vail Daily letter: Dems meet Tuesday, Feb. 5

Fred Schmidt
Vail, CO, Colorado

We are at a time in our history when as citizens of this great nation, we should not be thinking, acting and talking as we have always done.

We could, of course, but in this time period without citizens’ involvement toward what we want our country to be, our everyday ways of living can slip away and result in changes far from our choosing.

The financial and social issues currently being aired by various levels of our local, state and federal governments can be voted on in such a way as to have a devastating effect on our families’ security.

Please come and get to know us, and perhaps offer a small amount of your time each month to making a difference. Also consider joining our growing Democratic family.

Several of the lines from our president’s recent inaugural address do, in fact, ask us all to come together to ensure our country’s future and the rights of all its citizens.

At one point he said, “You and I, as citizens, have the power to set this country’s course. You and I, as citizens, have the obligation to shape the debates of our time – not only with the votes we cast, but with the voices we lift in defense of the most ancient values and enduring ideas.”

He went on to say, “More than ever, we must do these things together as one nation and one people.”

Finally, he said referring to a threshold our country faces with infinite possibilities ahead of us, “We are made for this moment and we will seize it, so long as we seize it together.”

Please join the Eagle County Democratic Party today in the Garden Level Room of the Eagle County Building in Eagle for their annual reorganizational meeting.

The purpose of the meeting is to elect new state and county leaders, county committee chairs and discuss 2014 potential candidates for several positions.

Additionally, we will be hearing from a number of visiting officials. Light refreshments will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m. The call to order will begin at 6 p.m.

If you would like more information, call (970) 524-1016.
