Election Day Morning and Afternoon

Today is finally election day! For Jared, it’s been one and half years of hard campaigning. Today, he did his final Honk and Wave in Boulder before heading to Longmont, Colorado, to help out with Betsy Markey’s campaign. Heading down to downtown Denver for the Democratic Election Party. So, without further ado, some photos from … Continue reading Election Day Morning and Afternoon

Final Hours Before Election

Here’s a random set of photos from the last day before Election 2008. It’s been a long campaign and everyone is ready to move on with the next project. For Jared, hopefully that will be a Congressional Seat in Colorado’s District 2. For me, it’ll be back to the Bay Area to work on the … Continue reading Final Hours Before Election

Though I shouldn’t be surprised, I’m still a little taken aback by all of the people who came up to him, … Continue reading Boulder County Farmer's Market

Campaign Headquarters

Here are photos from Jared’s visits to his campaign headquarters and the joint Obama/Udall/Polis campaign office. The level of coordination is pretty cool at these offices; I saw volunteers from California and New York. Since Colorado is a swing state (that’s been leaning blue the past several elections), volunteers from definite blue states have been … Continue reading Campaign Headquarters

On Friday afternoon, we attended the annual Munchkin Masquerade on Pearl Street in downtown Boulder, Colorado. Kids and parents of all ages were dressed in their Halloween Costumes. Jared, still in his Colorado Rockies #45 uniform, handed out candy to the kids and spoke with the parents about the upcoming election. There were a lot … Continue reading Munchkin Masquerade and Pearl Street
