Saguache Democrats Reorganizing

According to Barbara Tidd, Secretary with the Saguache County Democratic Party Central Committee, the group will be re-organizing in 2019. While the national stage sets its sights on the 2020 Presidential election, local political affiliations are seeing some changes in leadership from precinct representatives to county officers. Now is the time to get involved, because local politics is still the driving force behind civic engagement and community representation.
