OURAY COUNTY – The March 24 Ouray County Democratic Party County Assembly voted unanimously for incumbent Lynn Padgett to be its candidate for County Commissioner in District 1. “I think I have been able to represent the interests of the people and businesses of Ouray County, and would be honored to continue to do that,” Padgett said, according to Chair John Hollrah.

Hollrah also reported that Mike McLachlan, candidate for State Representative in HD 59, said he could ably represent a district evenly split between Democrats, Republicans and Unaffiliated, and that 
former Mayor 
Patrick Willits, independent candidate for County Commissioner for District 2, also spoke.

Six resolutions were passed, and will be forwarded to the State Platform Committee:

1) We support the establishment of a Colorado Health Care Cooperative by ballot measure by November, 2013.

2) Whereas Low Altitude Tactical Navigation training and flights will have an impact on southern Colorado due to pollution, noise, effects on wildlife, livestock, economics, and tourism; it is resolved that an Environmental Impact Statement study should be completed by the U.S. Air Force before proceeding.

3) While acknowledging that oil and gas exploration cannot be banned, counties should be able to maintain their own regulations that supplement those of the State.

4) We support the San Juan Mountains Wilderness Act and urge its passage.

5) We endorse Move to Amend in its efforts to amend the United States Constitution so that corporations are no longer recognized as persons and so that democracy based on equal representation of all true persons can be restored.

6) In view of its devastating effect on the local economy and businesses, the Democratic Party shall support a modification of the Gallagher Amendment.

Five delegates will attend the State Assembly; they are David Kennedy, Heather Anderson, Linda Borof, Terri Kennedy, and Irwin Borof.
