Be an Informed Voter

This election season is filled with many ballot items important to our community. Please join us as Steve Colby walks through our ballots (items, not candidates) and translating how those items are written versus how they’ll effect our lives. Steve in now retired, but spent decades as an economist with the State of Colorado, and has always been an avid observer of the political system from proposal to program execution, and has become very cognizant of the tips and tricks to getting your ballot measure passed, and what effect those measures will have on the other parts of the system.

Join us at the Common Room in Alfalfa’s (Arapahoe and Broadway, in Boulder). Please park at the Library (across Arapahoe) and come on over. We’ll be discussing the ballot items (see your Blue Book, which should have arrived in the mail by now – PDF available here), and specifically Boulder County ballot items (see a sample ballot, PDF here).

October 18th, 10:30am to 12noon

Margaret Coel

Margaret’s new book, Night of the White Buffalo, will be available for sale as will her other books and Margaret will sign your purchase.

Margaret’s novels have received wide recognition. They have been on the bestseller lists of numerous newspapers, including the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the Denver Post.
