Back in the Saddle Again

  • 3 Comments
  • by: Konola

Most of my readers know that I’ve been fighting cancer for most of the last year. I had my last radiation treatment on Tuesday of this past week. So, here’s the update: I’m feeling fine. My hair is growing back. I’m ready to get back in the saddle again.

On Wednesday I will stand for election as Treasurer at the annual meeting of Western Colorado Congress of Mesa County. In February I will stand for election as Treasurer of the Mesa DEMS. I’m already involved in helping some candidates for Grand Junction City Council get elected in April. And last night I attended a fundraiser for Mark Udall, who will be running for reelection in 2014.

Had I planned better, I would be at the Gun Appreciation Day in front of the Old Mesa County Courthouse today, taking pictures. As usual, there is more going on behind the scenes than most people know.

Western Colorado Conservative Alliance changed its name when local Tea Party members got upset with them for calling themselves THE Tea party. If you recall, the Tea Party went so far as to register the name with the Secretary of State, thus effectively stealing the name Western Colorado Conservative Alliance out from under them. The surviving organization’s new president is Kevin McCarney, who doesn’t seem to have learned a thing. A little birdie told me that the new name has been registered with the Secretary of State, but not by McCarney etal. It seems someone registered it before he got around to doing so.

I also learned that members the local Tea party, including the Tea Party of One, decided to forgo today’s pro-gun demonstration because they thought showing up on the steps of the Old County Court House with guns was a bird-brained idea. The idea came from David Cox. If you remember, David Cox once ran for the House District 54 seat until he was arrested for a DUI while in the possession of a handgun. He was also involved in the fight to legalize marijuana in Colorado. Rumor has it that if he didn’t spend so much of his time stoned, he might be able to think better than birds, which have prehistoric birdbrains.

I look forward to seeing the news coverage of this event later today. One thing for sure, politics in Mesa County is never dull.
