Treasury has about $100.00

Freedom is NOT free... Please give time &/or$$$

Really -Folks, if you do have a Job, can't you afford 10 cents a DAY to help the cause of ~reedom? I mean that's less then a piece of penny candy costs. I mean, if all of 1,1ou who get this and are employed only purchased 10 cents worth of freedom each day, then we would be in good shape. Please start a twinkee Jar. What is a twinkee Jar?? We 1111. . . Our fore-fathers, and mothers, pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to give us the freedoms we take for granted. Can you Pledge 1/2 of your weekly (pick one -twinkee, chocolate, beer, cigarettes) ration to help maintain those freedoms? A good way to do

I this is to have a Jar, and everytime you purchase one of the pledged items, put a matching amount in the Jar.

H E L P ! ! H E LP!! HE L P! ! H E L P! ! HE LP!!

Can anybody help with clerical stuff? Penn needs a person to volunteer one morning a month.

We can help someone. If you would like to use an office in exchange for answering the phone and a nominal monthly fee, contact Dave Daniels about sharing the Party office, and having it mostly to yourself in the day.

Election <Ugh) results. We Ain't sure why but Dave Aitkens only got

3 . 2% of the vote placing him a distant third. We welcome input and suggestions as to how we can do better next time. Even the 'experts ' (the other candidates) expected him to come in second with 20% to 30'l. of the vote.

Geoff Lloyd got 1. 9%, but got ovel' 4% in 5 of his precincts. Bear in mind that he spent only 113rd the money and about 1120th the time of Dave. Hopefully we are not forever doo~ Ea to lineholder status.

Now for the good news . .. We need volunteers to run for City c<::>uncil

in Denver. This is a non partisian election so we should do much better. That is people won't be scared by the name Libertarian. Elections are in June. If you are unemployed, this Job does pay

about $20K/year. Also Board of Education & election commission petitioning start 1-87.

The Marshall Fritz events were successful, with 75 at his seminar, most of whom were non-Libertarians. The pot luck brought 21 of an anticipated 20. At this event ne s~~ke on how to be a more effective Libertarian.

A thanks to all who helped on Amendment 4. It was defeated, and we believe that the reason was an ~~pensive and deceptive ad campaign by the apposition. We will do better next time.

We need volunteers to help establish a presence on college campuses along the front range. Rumor has it that liberals are coming back to institutions of higher learning; and along with them Keynesians.

Doug Anderson is having a membership drive, so please renew your membership if it has lapsed. The oath is not a requirement for state membership. We are putting together a study group to publish Libertarian position papers on Education and Taxes. This should be fun... and it •..Jill look good on your resume.

We are soliciting people to serve on the platform & the Constitution and bylaws committees. The time re~uired is 15 hours over 10 weeks.

C O M M E N T S F R O M T H E C H A I R An affilliate in Colorado Springs was rormed Thurs Oct. 23.
