political meetings this weekend; back to work tomorrow am / by Philip Tarlow

at the end of the meeting last night in monte vista, the candidates stood in front of the room to make their closing statements

we have back to back meetings with candidates this weekend in 4 different towns here in the SLV.

today the meetings are in crestone this morning  & saguache, about 45 minutes west of crestone this afternoon. mikela & "indivisible" friend barb designed these meetings so that attendees could sit with each of the candidates at a small table allowing a close and intimate connection, so that each of us can say we genuinely got to know the candidates and what they stand for.

it worked! both speakers and attendees agreed they way preferred this format to one where the candidate stands in front of the room & holds forth.
