    Colorado Republican Caucus Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the caucus?

    Caucuses are precinct-level gatherings of voters that take place across Colorado. In 2018, the Republican caucuses will take place on Tuesday, March 6, at 7 pm.

    What happens at the caucus?

    Caucus-goers elect delegates and alternates to various assemblies. These can include county, state house, state senate, county ommission, state, congressional, and judicial assemblies. In some counties, caucus-goers elect delegates and alternates only to the county ssembly, and those delegates, in turn, elect delegates to the higher assemblies; in other counties, delegates to the higher assemblies are elected provisionally at the caucus and ratified at the county assembly.

    FasTracks is RTD’s voter-approved transit expansion program — the largest in the nation — transforming transportation through the Denver metro area. Since 2004, we’ve completed the W Line, the Free MetroRide and Union Station. In January 2016, we launched the Flatiron Flyer Bus Rapid Transit service, in April 2016 we opened the University of Colorado A Line rail service between Union Station and Denver International Airport. In July, 2016, we opened the B Line to Westminster. In February 2017, we opened the R Line through Aurora, and soon, we will be opening the G Line – all part of the FasTracks program.
    Through the FasTracks program we’re building more rail, improved bus service, more parking, and improved roadways and bridges for people on the go. Now that’s progress.

  • COLORADO SPRINGS — After a year of hiding out, Sen. Cory Gardner emerged Tuesday in Colorado Springs, but really the crowd was so unruly at times he might as well have been a cardboard cutout.

    You know, like the cardboard Cory who appeared at events this summer when the Republican senator refused to hold in-person public events. That’s apparently what the crowd who gathered at Pikes Peak Community College Tuesday morning really wanted: someone to yell at, about President Donald Trump and health care.

    A woman dressed in a chicken costume at the front entrance — a nod to Gardner’s fear of public events of late — stood next to a nearly life-sized cutout of the senator and cracked a joke about his stature.

    Gardner was met with hostility, rudeness and aggression. He was unable to speak over a crowd that yelled things like “single payer” and “you suck.” It was embarrassing behavior from a movement that isn’t doing itself any favors at this moment of momentum building. Some of the crowd in the Pikes Peak Community College auditorium proved Gardner was right at a time they could have shown just how wrong ducking public events is.

  • I am very excited and honored to officially announce my candidacy for Thornton City Council, Ward 3. I am looking forward to represent everyone in Ward 3, and Thornton.

    I had the privilege of serving you on Thornton’s City Council in the past, and I am asking for your support so that I once again have that privilege to serve you and our community on the Council for a full term. I will do so by listening to the concerns and needs of all our community members with the goal of building a better Thornton, one that thrives economically and maintains that “better Thornton” to live, work, play and raise family.

    Giving back to the community is important to me and that is why I am running once again to serve on Thornton’s City Council.

    Through my personal experiences growing up in a war-torn Communist regime of Laos, becoming a refugee, coming to this great country and gaining opportunities beyond what I ever imagined, and starting a family, that drives me to give back to my community and to help others.

    We live in a great city! With my ever-expanding business experience in the Information technology industry for over 21 years and my over 18 years of volunteer experience in our community and in other communities locally and nationally, that makes me uniquely qualified to be on the Thornton’s City Council, and together we can make our city an even better one.

    It is with that I begin my campaign. I will run a positive campaign, in which I will display honesty and integrity in all my interactions, and treat all that I encounter with utmost respect.

    Thank you,
    SomXai VUE
