Effective Advocacy at the Colorado General Assembly

From Chris Holbert

 As we approach the January 8th start of the 2014 general session, it might be helpful for liberty-oriented activists to consider the following suggestions for effective advocacy. You don’t HAVE to do it this way, but it might be helpful to consider these suggestions.

• The 100 legislators who serve in the Colorado legislature are NOT “members of Congress.” That word refers to the 535 people who serve in the federal legislature. There are 65 Representatives and 35 Senators in the Colorado General Assembly.

If you don’t know those two people, then take time to meet them. If you need to determine who they are, then get a piece of mail at your home and find your Zip + 4 zip code. From there, go here and enter your Zip + 4 in the search box: http://www.votesmart.org/

• From the http://votesmart.org/ web site, write down the name of your State Senator and State Representative

• Next, go to the General Assembly web site and click the “Contact Information” tab in the left menu. http://www.leg.state.co.us/

• Contact information for your State Senator and State Representative is provided in the “Legislative Pink Book” that is available under the “Contract Information” tab Continue reading

During a radio address to the nation on December 25, 1982, President Reagan concluded with, “In spite of everything, we Americans are still uniquely blessed, not only with the rich bounty of our land but by a bounty of the spirit — a kind of year-round Christmas spirit that still makes our country a beacon of hope in a troubled world and that makes this Christmas and every Christmas even more special for all of us who number among our gifts the birthright of being an American. Until next week, thanks for listening. Merry Christmas, and God bless you.” We invite you to listen to this entire speech. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiWdKcsEgS8
