Does anybody reading the Sentinel know that the Mesa County Democratic Party held an Assembly a week ago? Do they know what the Democratic Party candidates said at that Assembly? Do they know what the Democratic Party candidates look like? Do they know that the local electorate is increasingly independent and what independent candidates are saying and look like? How can we have a democracy when the local paper covers ONE party only? Isn’t Democracy about the choice of the electorate, not the choice of party delegates? Shouldn’t that electorate be fully informed?

Same ‘ol good ‘ol boys just being recycled over and over and over again. If you wanna see democrat candidates or info just go to any main stream media outlet. I suggest MSNBC, CNBC, NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC, Howard Stern, Imus, NPR, CSPAN or many others.

Thanks, Jerry, you proved my point. Locals think that Democrats only exist on the national level, and know nothing about the very good local citizens who happen to be registered as Democrats and vote in local elections for local candidates. There are quite a few of us here. Really. There are.

I’m sorry Claudette, but the local dems have no one but themselves to blame for not being very newsworthy.  Although you worked hard at finding candidates for most races, how many contested races will there be in the Democratic primary this year at the local level?  How many statewide candidates showed up at the assembly?  How many races will have NO Democratic candidate this November?

If you want so-called “earned media” you have to earn it.

The press is under no obligation to cover something that isn’t news.
