Pitkin County Democratic Party

Welcome to the Pitkin County Democratic Party

We support progressive principles and candidates in Pitkin County, in Colorado, and in the nation.
Democrats believe in social justice, equal rights for all, and government that serves the needs of all Americans for:

Access to health care
Energy independence
Protection of the environment
National security
As Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick said, “Government is what we call the things we choose to do together.”

“The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life — the sick, the needy and the handicapped.” -Hubert Horatio Humphrey

We aspire to a government that meets the highest moral test.
