Summer is upon us, and I trust you had a Happy and Safe Independence Day Weekend. For my part, I am fulfilling my legislative interim responsibilities as a member of the Capital Development and Health Insurance Exchange Oversight Committees. I am also responding to constituent concerns and connecting with the community through one-on-one and small group meetings such as my community conversations. The next one is Saturday, 8/15, 9-10:30 AM, (location TBD), FC. The July 18 Commuity Conversation was excellent with around 20 engaged people present. Democracy in Action!
In addition to these activities, I've been working on my social welfare policy classes that I will teach at CSU this fall, and I've begun my official training for the Mount Desert Island Marathon in Maine, 10/18. I am running CO Half Marathon on Labor Day.
On the campaign side of life, we had a successful 2016 re-election campaign fundraising quarter, which ended 6/30. Thank you for doing your part within your means. This is a great start but there is much work ahead, and yes we are rolling up our sleeves because the work is not done. As Yogi Berra used to say, "It ain't over till it's over."
If you've not donated yet or you can make another one, please consider donating to help me reach my next fundraising goal by 9/30. You can send a check to: People for John Kefalas, 604 Sycamore Street, Fort Collins, CO 80524 or click on the donate button above. Thank you for your trust and support! Have a great Colorado day as always!
