Those of you with Facebook accounts might want to check out “Save Our State”. Two ladies dedicated to keeping near billionaire Jared Polis from buying the Colorado governorship have some hilarious homemade videos.
Nothing ad agency slick about this site. I applaud their involvement in the political process. Helps I agree with them.
Polis is the spoiled only child of parents who hit it big in the early days of the internet with an on line greeting card operation. He has parlayed his inheritance into a multi-million fortune with business practices that don’t pass the smell test. A Boulder County resident, he is a natural (P)regressive.
Integrity? After Bernie Sanders beat Shillary, he was one of several Colorado super delegates who voted for Shillary at the Democrat convention.
Will his self funded $18 million campaign land him the governship? Likely. He has little support in the rural areas (drew 20 people to a rally in Craig in NW Colorado) but the Front Range voters dominate the state by sheer population numbers.
His opponent is a typical GOP nice guy. Competent and well qualified, he is no Donald Trump or Joe Arpaio. Not a lot of excitement there.
So bravo for the two ladies and their Facebook effort. I hope it isn’t in vain.
