Today was a day to remember the potential of solar power (and wind for that matter) in Southern Colorado. Now, there are other resources to be tapped as well (like natural gas and oil), however, there is often an abundance of sun and today, while campaigning on the corner of 1st Street and Santa Fe in Pueblo, I got to really experience that. Solar Roast Coffee, a local coffee store that uses a proprietary solar-powered roaster to roast their beans, actually started its operations in Pueblo because of that sun-potential. A powerful espresso drink, made with organic coffee beans and a renewable resource – AMAZING. I love this country.
Sunday - a day of rest – we praised our blessings earlier at a mass at Holy Family Parish. Then it was off to meet WE THE PEOPLE. With my “Will Work for Liberty” sign and flags, we handed out cards and shook hands while enjoying the beautiful day.
It doesn’t matter how old you are, what your background is, how much money you have, or what your political affiliation is – we are here to be a voice and a vehicle for connecting our communities together. It is time to put government back in control of the people – and that starts right here with you and me.
