As many as 60 local voters gathered on Friday evening, Oct 10, to celebrate the opening of the first-ever Archuleta County Democratic Party election headquarters.
Local candidates Todd Risberg, Clifford Lucero, Ron Chacey and Kelly Evans were in attendance to greet local voters.
The election headquarters, located at 175 Pagosa St., next to Farrago Market Cafe, will serve as a central organizational location for get-out-the-vote activities and distribution of campaign materials. It will be staffed daily by volunteers from Archuleta County.
In addition, with the opening of the headquarters, the Obama/Biden campaign has decided to place a deputy organizer in the office to coordinate their activities in the county.
