Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    COLORADO FOCUS: Wins and Losses

    Progressive Majority did well in Colorado this year! Building on a 4//5 win last spring, they won a bunch more this last week.

    City Offices

    Pat Quinn, Broomfield Mayor: Won with 48% of the vote.

    Kevin Jacobs, Broomfield City Council, Ward 3: Won with 59% of the vote.

    Judy Enderle, Broomfield City Council, Ward 4: Lost with 47% of the vote.

    Angelique Espinoza, Boulder City Council: Won one of seven seats up on the Boulder City Council in a field of 22.

    Eugene Pearson, Boulder City Council: Lost in a 22 candidate field for seven seats up on the Boulder City Council.

    Russ Arensman, Glenwood Springs City Council, District 1: Won with 100% of the vote. (100%??? That is almost unheard of!)

    Jacob Smith, Golden Mayor: Won by 141 votes in a three way race. (Shows you that EVERY VOTE COUNTS!!!)

    Bob Murphy, Lakewood Mayor: Won with 49% of the vote.

    Karen Kellen, Lakewood City Council, District 1: Won with 53% of the vote.

    Cindy Baroway, Lakewood City Council, District 2: Won with 55% of the vote.

    Tom Quinn, Lakewood City Council, District 5: Won with 67% of the vote.

    Karen Benker, Longmont Mayor: Lost with 43% of the vote.

    Sean McCoy, Longmont City Council, District 3: Won with 53% of the vote.

    Eric Drummond, Manitou Springs Mayor: Won with 75% of the vote. (VERY respectable!)

    Karen Post, Steamboat Springs City Council, District 3: Lost with 44% of the vote.

    Vince Arroyo, Steamboat Springs City Council, District 3: Lost with 43% of the vote.

    Townie Anderson, Steamboat Springs City Council, At Large: Lost with 36% of the vote.

    Eva Henry, Thornton City Council, Ward 1: Won with 62% of the vote.

    Faith Winter, Westminster City Council: Was elected out of a seven candidate field.


    School Boards

    Jennifer Herrera, Cherry Creek School Board, District A: Lost with 43% of the vote.

    Jan Tanner, D-11 School Board; Was elected out of a seven candidate field with 20% of the vote.

    Tom Strand, D-11 School Board: Was elected out of a seven candidate field with 19% of the vote.

    Chyrese Exline, D-11 School Board: Was not elected out of a seven candidate field with 12% of the vote.

    Naomi Helterbran, Douglas County School Board: Was not elected out of a five candidate field with 17% of the vote.

    Trena Anastasia, Poudre Valley School Board, District A: Lost with 34% of the vote.


    All in all not a bad record for progressive grassroots. To build on these gains, I strongly urge you to join Progressive Majority.

    Additionally, Democracy for Colorado has a very ambitious, quite brilliant, I think, plan to work precinct by precinct to win Colorado. I urge you to join the Think Precinct movement in Colorado. It is one of the best grassroots organizing idea I have seen recently. It could make a HUGE difference between now and 2008.
