Last Saturday Arn Menconi’s phone started blowing up. He’s a social justice activist from Carbondale who served two terms on the Eagle County Commission.
Last Saturday was the Democratic Party’s state convention held at the Budweiser Event Center in Loveland. But Menconi wasn’t there because he’s no longer a Democrat. In January, he’d changed his affiliation to become a member of the Green Party. Then, on April 3, he unanimously snagged his new party’s nomination to run for U.S. Senate in Colorado.
Menconi’s phone was going haywire because of the messages rolling in. Something big was going on in Loveland.
