I really hope this recall works. Hudak is the worst of the worst.
That's very nice to hear since it indicates agreement from the clerk and some assurance of getting a solid news story knocking her closer to losing the seat.
I put a shout out here for donations to you guys!
Lakewood is out of the district. The district is comprised of most of Arvada and roughly half of Westminster. Rough boundries are
120th on the North
I 70 on the South
Sheridan on the East
Indiana on the West
Like I said, rough boundries only. The lines take slight jogs in and out of these roads.
Just to "actualize" things a little, I took a picture of the petition drive a couple of weeks ago on 58th Avenue (Ralston Rd) during a slight lull in traffic. There was a group of anti-pro-recall ( ) folks there, too, ringing cowbells and whatnot. They're the ones wih the orange signs.
I was trying to capture a clear pic of the white and black flag, which showed one of those modern sporting rifles which are in common use, but the wind didn't allow it during that break in traffic.
While I was at their office, I picked up a bunch of RecallHudakToo literature to drop off at my range. OK, so I walked into the range and asked the manager if I could leave some off on the tables in the waiting area, and he said "You bet!" with some considerable enthusiasm.
But nobody had apparently done that before. I went back and left off some more the next week and chatted with some of the folks waiting for firing points. One said he had already signed the petition, but stoopit me, I forgot to point out that if he was one of those who had signed the first petition, this was a new drive, and he'd have to sign a new one. :dopeslap: :banghead:
One thing I forgot to ask while I was at the recall office was if any special effort was made to individually contact the registered Libertarians. These are the folks whose votes were drawn away from the more desireable candidate when she was elected.
Don't get me wrong, I can't blame anyone for voting their conscience, but in this case it is generally agreed that this threw the election her way. Having them sign the petition and vote for her recall is an excellent way to "correct" the election of Ms. Hudak last time around.
Anyhow, sorry for the lousy pic, but between waiting for traffic to clear and the wind to lift that "modern sporting rifle which is in common use" flag right, that was the best I could do. I hollered at them to wave at me from across the four-lane street, but not too many heard me.
Go Colorado! GO!
Those Antis with the orange signs actually help us more than they hurt us. They draw so much attention to our sign & drives, just by being there. We notice a considerable up tick in signers while they are there. Also they have done and said some things, like the infamous door hangers, that have gotten people who were on the fence, or even on our side, but hadn't made the effort to go sign, to sign by infurating them.
I've talked with some of them, and some are just looney. Most are actually decent people who have no clue about reality. Even joked with one that we would all have Thanksgiving dinner together at the 80th & Wadsworth sign & drive location.
The best thing that could have happened to the recall effort is the activists who are protesting it.
It was the orange signed anti's that caught my wife's attention while driving by the Recall main office location the other day...causing her to drop off another check to help out with the Recall effort.
You guys are doin great! Thanks for the picture 230RN.
Awesome job. Keep it up Colorado!
Jitterbug, thank your wife from all of us.
I was up in Arvada yesterday, don't live in district or I would have signed.
Guy gathering signatures was kinda out numbered by antis. Still, we had a nice conversation. Keep the faith!
Local tv station is reporting a few minutes ago that Evie will resign today.
This way, Dems can appoint a replacement and hold a 1 seat majority! Congrats folks, you have em scared!
Just now confirmed by www.9news.com
Thanks for posting longknife, I just heard and signed on to spread the news.
However the push for signatures goes on, double efforts. We don't know if she could rescind the resignation the day after the sigs are due. We must continue.
Due to this turn of events, I will be putting in more time than I had planned in these last few day.
Just got word she's set to resign. Unbelievable.
Great job colorado!!!
She resigned! Good job guys! Hope you can find out if it can be resinded so you can take a breather.
According to KKTV Hudak has resigned
A resignation isn't a good thing.
It means that her party was frightened enough that they had her step down so they could put another like her in place. I don't think her replacement is subject to recall and no CO has to wait until the elections to throw off the Antis in the Senate.
The Antis still retain power in CO because of this resignation.
Until the citizens of Colorado can throw off the shackles of these draconian anti 2A laws by tossing their Jailers out this is just one fight in the war to return freedom to the people of Colorado.
HSO, at least she is gone. While it definitely would have been better to have a recall, there's no guarantee her successor will have the same voting practices on gun control, especially after these recent events.
Rather than stand up and fight for what she professes to believe, Ms. Hudak has chosen or has been ordered to resign in a baldly political power play. If what she said and did was so right, why run away?
We have learned from this dirty little event that power is more important than standing up for one's convictions.
Well said. Why step down if she thinks she's in the right? (don't give me that saving $ junk).
I wonder what changed, she said early on that she was NOT going to resign over this. Did they pressure her hard?
Is there another one that is vulnerable? I've never been against kicking my adversaries when they are down...
Hey Evie, you suck, happy Thanksgiving, don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya on your way out.
Colorado democrat politicians had better realize that their constituents don't want gun control, despite what Bloomberg says.
How much did Bloomberg spend attacking the recall effort?
