Polis recall shows broad support

Yes, the recall effort fell short! A waste of time, energy, resources? Hardly!

For years Republicans as a party have wrestled with the question of, “How do we reach out to the unaffliated, the disenfranchised, the Hispanics, the Blacks and the Dems who feel their party has left them, etc.? We can’t win elections if we don’t figure a way to accomplish an outreach to these groups!”

What we saw — and we have the signatures as proof — was that diverse people from across our state were eager to join a combined effort to end this current tyrannical governing body. Probably an equal amount didn’t have a chance to sign because of the time constraints!

This represents a huge voting block statewide and in each county who are going to react to our “failure” by going to the polls in November to affect that change on a much larger scale. School boards, city councils, other county and state offices stand to be impacted by this block of registered voters who now see their personal lives being affected and feel the need to become active.

Are we disappointed that the recall failed? Yes, but the opportunity to witness the Phoenix rising from the ashes of our “failed” attempt stands to prove that it didn’t “fail” after all!

Was the search for, and support of, our candidates sacrificed in this process? Certainly not from our perspective. What we saw was a cohesive effort to accomplish both. Infighting was absent as well.

Lemons into lemonade, anyone?

Jim Schindler,

Thornton
