GPCO 2004 State Meeting
and Nominating Convention Information
The Meeting and Nominating Convention were held at the Fort Collins Mennonite Fellowship, close to downtown/Old Town Fort Collins, CO on April 24, 2004. Twenty-five delegates from 8 local chapters met to conduct the Green Party of Colorado’s annual business and nominate its candidates. This was the weekend of a major storm which deposited up to 3 feet of snow in some parts of the state making it impossible for some delegates to attend.
Green candidates David Cobb and Kent Mesplay addressed the Nominating Convention. We had four facilitators on board: Chuck Ogg, Judith Mohling, Lanny Kness, and Bruce Meyer.
