Character, integrity, and duty:
If you are called to vote upon an issue, where would your allegiance lie in that vote? Would it be with your constituents, even if your constituents vehemently propose one side and you internally believe another side?

Do we elect you to vote because we believe in you?

Evergreen Newspapers and the Evergreen Chamber of Commerce did a wonderful job organizing and conducting their Candidate Forum last week. The questions were pertinent, the candidates gave very informative responses, it was pleasantly cordial, and extremely well-attended - the house was packed.

Please remember our Candidate Q & A is tonight, and we've got the Sheriff's Candidates who were not represented at last week's debate, plus the Jeffco Commissioner Candidates. We hope to see you at Elk Creek Fire Station 1 at 6pm!

Candidates for elected office present their positions to voters
Written by Staff Editor on Tuesday, October 07 2014.

Just about every seat of the auditorium at the Fire Administration Building was filled on October 2nd when candidates for elected office presented themselves – and their positions – to voters.
