Eagle County Democrats announce upcoming October events

By Eagle County Democrats

September 7, 2008 —  I hate to have to admit it, but I missed most of the first Presidential debates, held September 26. I driving, on my way back from a vacation trip to California. NPR radio stations are pretty sporadic in Eastern Utah and Western Colorado. So since I do not like to report on anything based on news reports, hearsay and innuendo, I won’t comment on them here. I will be sure to watch the next 2 debates, to be held on Oct. 7 & 15, as well as the VP debate on Oct. 2-now that should be interesting! I will say that gas prices are certainly putting a strain on travel and vacations right now-ouch! I’ve been trying to get caught up on emails, of course, and have plenty to read from the Eagle County Democrats. What a busy bunch we are!
