These are photographs from the Adams County Assembly convention. At this assembly, multiple candidates showed up to speak and mingle with the voters. what you see in these photos are the following candidates: Scott McGinnis and Dan Maes (both candidates for governor), Ali Hasan and JJ Ament (both candidates for Colorado State Treasurer), Bob Brancoto and Stephen Bailey (both candidates for Colorado’s 2nd district), Steve Barton, Cleve Tidwell and Ken Buck (all 3 candidates for U.S. Senate), Ryan Frazier, Mike Sheely and Lang Sias (all 3 candidates for the 7th Congressional District), John Suthers (Colorado’s Attorney General).

In their speeches, they all communicated the urgency of fiscal responsibility and getting people into office with real world experience. A lot of the candidates have worked in the corporate arena and in science, for example. They like the idea of smaller and more financially responsible government. When Cleve Tidwell and Dan Meas told the crowed that they are not a lawyer or professional politician, the crowed erupted in applause.

One speech I found to be most effective was that of Ali Hasan. He used visuals to demonstrate his point when he was talking about how the state budget is spent on various things and he expressed a desire to create jobs and divest from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The crowd applaud in agreement with his stated goals.
