Bi-partisan means both parties
I am writing this letter in light of recent letters to the editor that states the local efforts supporting the recall of our Colorado Governor Jared Polis is a bi-partisan support event.
To clarify this misinformation. This recall effort is NOT supported by the Las Animas Democratic Party and we encourage people NOT to sign the recall petition.
It is very wrong for the local Republican party members to continue the misinformation that the recall effort is bi-partisan.
Advertisement for the Labor Day BBQ hosted by the local Republican Party calls the event “Bipartisan”. They suggest that local Democratic Party officers or state Democrat elected officials will be included in the balanced conversation. No local Democratic Party officers will be speaking at this so-called bi-partisan event. You cannot have a bi-partisan event when only one party has the microphone.
I would hope in the future, when our community celebrates the annual events like Labor Day weekend we all come together as one community. It is one thing to showcase your party candidates in the parade and one to one greetings by the individual candidates to people attending the event, but let us leave out the stage activities pushing one’s party agenda no matter which party.
Let’s keep our community events, political agendas free and focus on enjoying the event.

Stonewall Century ride ommission and correction
After reading the article which appeared in the August 15th Huerfano World Journal regarding the Stonewall Century Ride, I noticed neither the Cokedale VFD nor the Trinidad Ambulance District were mentioned as agencies which provided support for the event.
Thank You for correcting this error.
