Denver – The third in a series of four statewide forums on the future of Colorado's presidential primary takes place in Pueblo Friday, between 2:00 and 4:00 PM at the Rawlings Public Library. The participation of all interested parties -- Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, independents – is encouraged.
The goal is to ensure that as many Coloradans as possible have a chance to be heard on this critically important topic, which became the focal point of two bills that failed in the waning days of the 2016 legislative session. Based on the strong public showing at the group's first meeting in Denver, three new meetings were scheduled to facilitate a truly statewide discussion.
"Besides the controversial question of resurrecting a presidential primary before 2020, there are many other questions where we need much more public involvement before the legislature tackles the issue," said Senator Kevin Grantham (R-Canon City), who will chair the Pueblo meeting. "Our public town hall meetings are nonpartisan and open to every citizen who cares about keeping government accountable through fair elections and a state primary and caucus system that gives everyone a voice."
Friday, August 26, 2:00 to 4:00PM
Rawlings Public Library, Ryals Room, 4th Floor
100 East Abriendo Avenue, Pueblo
Chairman: Senator Kevin Grantham
