PFR Buys Giant Storefront Billboard Next to Dems HQ

  • 2 Comments
  • by: kwtree
Santa Fe Street is the easternmost downtown artery through Pueblo, running alongside I25. Pueblo Democrats has had its headquarters  at 305 Santa Fe St for decades.  Pueblo United for Angela, the pro-Giron anti-recall issue committee, began renting the space in May of this year. In late August, Jami Baker, a real estate agent and recall petition signer,brokered a transaction to rent the unused space at 307 Santa Fe St, next to the Dems HQ. 

Although Ms. Baker refused to reveal to the Democratic tenants whom their new neighbors would be, it soon became evident that it had been rented to recall forces:

  • Odd men in camouflage clothing began to come in to harangue the bemused staff and volunteers. I personally had one very irate gentleman try to lecture me for 5 minutes about how he was mad at Senator Giron for signing a law that would prohibit teachers from carrying concealed guns.  (No such law has been proposed or voted on in Colorado…yet). Eventually, not getting the reactions he desired, the education expert left. 
  • There have been loud gatherings in the 307 half of the building, disrupting normal business operations. Most of the canvassers and volunteers have now been moved to other locations. Pueblo Dems had already planned to move and leased space elsewhere,  so PFR just accelerated the process a bit by moving in next door. 
  • The most obvious effect of Ms. Baker's renting of the space out to the PFR tenants is a gigantic sign, easily the largest on the street, which reads, " Recall Giron! Can You Hear Us Now?!!"
  • We can only assume that PFR's intent in renting empty space next to the Dems HQ was to intimidate and overshadow the anti-recall effort. If so, it isn't working well. Turnout in Pueblo is high, and Dems are outvoting Republicans 3-1.  

Enjoy your expensive sign holding space after the recall fails, boys!
