The Post Office fight moves to a new level

They released the proposal (it’s on display at the post office) to close our post office, however there are numerous grounds on which to contest it. I’ll be posting more info soon.

There are comment forms available at the post office.

Please call Udall, Bennet, and Polis and insist that they prevail on the PO to reverse their decision. Do not delay. Do not be intimidated. They work for you.

A Resolution in Support of Restoring Governing Power to We the People as Guaranteed in Our U.S. Constitution

Whereas, We, the Town of Ward, a Colorado Home-Rule Municipality, have suffered the ill effects of a recession caused by corporate and individual greed; and

Whereas, Ward is a community that applauds self-sufficiency; and

Whereas, Ward is a town that recognizes the need for community interdependence, locally and globally; and

Whereas, there are thousands of like-minded citizens putting their safety, freedom and lives on the line in New York, Denver and Los Angeles – joining movements in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and Tunisia – to return control of their countries to the 99% of the population who are not members of the plutocracy; and

Whereas, currently, the 1% plutocracy poisons the food supply through negligence and greed, and undermines the farming system through monopolization, threatening our health, the health of our children and the health of our environment, these concerns being especially important in a community that is climatically unsuited to self-supporting local agriculture; and

Whereas, currently, the 1% plutocracy sells our privacy as a commodity; and

Whereas, currently, the 1% plutocracy determines economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce; and

Whereas, currently, the 1% plutocracy blocks alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil; and

Whereas, currently, the 1% plutocracy covers up oil spills, accidents, and other environmental hazards in pursuit of profit; and

Whereas, currently, the 1% plutocracy keeps people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media, especially as regards the virtual media blackout on the protests and demonstrations in New York and a number of other American cities; and

Whereas, the people of Ward consider themselves to be citizens of the United States, a democratic republic, and as such firmly support the First Amendment right to free speech, peaceable assembly, and to redress grievances with our government;


Therefore, we the Town Council and General Assembly of the Town of Ward in attendance at the October 3, 2011 Town meeting, desire to express our support and stand in solidarity with the heroic citizens struggling to redress the grievances ensuing from the corporate takeover of our government and the resulting severe wealth imbalance in our country.


This resolution was passed unanimously by the town council and attending general assembly (a fine example of a working direct, democracy), on October 3, 2011.
