See you at the party! Invite below.

I go way back with New Era Colorado, and founder Steve Fenberg. Of all the folks I know in Colorado, Steve’s one of the straightest shooting, savviest, pure-hearted movers and shakers—and he’s only 15 (okay, more like 25). New Era Colorado goes way beyond Steve, though—it’s a big, and growing organization designed to support young people having—imagine—fun getting involved in politics. And their bipartisan work paid off in a big way in 2008, when they signed up scores of young conversatives, liberals and agnostics alike. Post-election, they’re continuing to take the ball down the field—getting involved in the legislative process that actually determines We the People’s daily lives.

I’ll be at their big fancy fundraising dinner in Denver—as will much of the political world, and countless young folks who not only give a care, but get off the couch and…onto the bus. 

A note: After weeks of attending (small parts of interminably long yet fascinating and somehow inspiring) Boulder City Council meetings, I’ve finally decided 97.5% to run for City Council in the Fall. It’s a particular honor, timing-wise, then, to be able to announce that I’ll be joining New Era’s board in a formal manner—after years of working with them to bring politics to the People, and We the People to the political process. ~ ed Waylon Lewis.
