Don’t forget – Sign your Ballot, drop it off at the County office on or before election day – and save yourself the Postage!

From the Street?  No “on the street” Eagle County Coroner Candidate Kara Bettis discovered campaigning up valley this past weekend.  Kara’s opponent (Sue Franciose) is the pretty ‘blue-eyed’ brunette candidate – and thanks to the ECT you all can watch (the video of) these two ladies in their recent debate.  (Click Here)

ECT’s question this week!   OK – just what does a County Coroner candidate wear – for her Halloween Costume?  Ladies, send the ECT a photo of your Halloween Costume – and the ECT will publish it!

Colorado’s Senate – Election 2014?

The Real-Story about Kerry Donovan vs. Don Suppes – is that Colorado’s Senate is within (1 or 2 votes – actually one or two election Races) from changing control from the Democrat’s  majority of today – to possibly Republican control after the November 4th 2014 election.

The Reason – this is a “big deal” is that when (1) party is in the Majority – ALL the Chairmanships, of all the Colorado Senate Committees (and sub-committees) are headed by that majority Party.  Bottom Line – that Party then “controls the legislative agenda” until the next election, when that election process begins again.

THAT’S WHY – you see all this (527  $$$) coming into our this Senate District 5 race – that Eagle County (and your vote) is a part of!
