Voters passed Amendment 64 on November 6th, 2012. You've heard about the so-called "benefits" Colorado
will receive with tax money going to schools and the state. But what about things people didn't think about
that we're now starting to deal with. What are the unintended consequences of changing the state
constitution? If you watch TV, you've heard a few of them.

Join the NSRF (North Suburban Republican Forum) with Mayors Heidi Williams and Herb Atkinson as they
answer that question on Saturday, July 12th. You don't want to miss this meeting at our new venue, Horan
& McConaty’s Community Room, 9998 Grant St in Thornton from 9:00am-11:00am. Doors open at 8:30am.

Admission is $3 for members and $5 per person for non-members. You can pay your 2014 NSRF dues of $20 if
you haven’t done so. Coffee, orange juice, donuts, bottled water, fruit & pastries are included with your
admission. We hope you can join us and bring a friend or two to this very exciting and knowledgeable
meeting.

Colorado Amendment 64 was a popular initiative ballot measure to amend Colorado's constitution, outlining a
statewide drug policy for cannabis. The measure passed on November 6, 2012, and along with a similar
Washington measure marked "an electoral first not only for America but for the world."[2] Now enacted as
Article 18, section 16 of the state constitution, the law addresses "personal use and regulation of marijuana"
for adults 21 and over, as well as commercial cultivation, manufacture, and sale, effectively regulating
cannabis in a manner similar to alcohol.[3] The first stores officially opened on January 1, 2014

Dear Liberty Friends,

Welcome to the summer!

We have an exciting summer ahead of us, including a number of events
planned. Our next event is the Annual Broomfield 9.12 Summer Picnic on July 12,
2014.

As in past election years, we are pleased to welcome a number of candidates to
our picnic this year. This year, we are happy to welcome Don Ytterberg (CD7
candidate), George Leing (CD2 candidate), Marijo Tinlin (HD33 candidate), and
many more. This is another great opportunity to meet these candidates and get
to know them as they work towards the election and look to represent us in their
various offices.

Bring your neighbors and friends! We look forward to seeing you there!

Hi,

I wanted to reach out to you, and let you know that the Adams & Broomfield Counties Victory office is
open. We are in the same location we were in 2012, at the corner of E. 104th and York.

If Republicans are going to win this year we are going to need all the help we can get. We need to
reach out to voters as many times as we can between now and November. Please consider spending
some time making phone calls here at the office, or knocking doors in your neighborhood. The more
times we reach out to voters the more likely we are to make an impact this year.

Thanks,
Kristian Hemphill
Adams & Broomfield Counties Field Director

We're looking for a candidate to run for RTD District K Director. You have to live in the area east of I-25,
north to 168th, south to 48th, and east to DIA. If you're interested, contact AdCo Chair Gary Mikes 303-
475-0413. RTD is governed by a 15-member, publicly elected Board of Directors. Directors are elected to
a four-year term and represent a specific district. Elections are staggered so that eight seats are open in
one general election, seven in the next.


All,
Meet Rebekah. Rebekah is employed by Heritage Action. Her goal is to establish a network
"Sentinels" http://heritageaction.com/sentinel/ that participate on a weekly call on Federal Legislation, and message
important Fed legislative happenings of the week.

I am trying to connect her with key leaders like you to help her grow her Sentinel network. To be a Sentinel takes minimal
time. I joined up today. As grassroots leaders, we know that little things can make a huge impact #Cantor #Recalls.
Please reply to Rebekah, and set up a time to meet with her or have her come and talk to your groups about this program.
With minimal effort, all of us can help her double her network.


Please take time to reach out to Rebekah and schedule her to speak at one of your upcoming events and/or step up like I
did and become a Sentinel today. If I have time to participate on a call and send a couple emails a week, I'm sure you do
too!

Thanks for indulging me!!!
