The opening yesterday of the Obama Headquarters at 27th and Welton was itself an “extraordinary thing”. A crowd of at least 200 packed the office, and an overflow crowd waited outside for a repeat of the meeting.
Pat Waak, Elbra Wedgeworth, and Beth McCann, made brief appearances. Carla Madison was called on twice but was apparently missing. Councilman Michael Hancock gave a rousing talk, and was greeted with enthusiasm. The crowd was there to sign-up for work: phone-banking and walking the neighborhood, in an all-out effort to register the estimated 38,000 unregistered potential voters in northeast Denver.
Update: I’m informed that the number of unregistered voters in NE Denver is actually more like 7,000, and that Madison appeared for the second round of talks.
