The Colorado Democratic Party is the state affiliate of the United States Democratic Party in the U.S. state of Colorado. Its chair is Rick Palacio, and its executive director is Alec Garnett.
The remaining officers are: Beverly Benevidez Ryken - First Vice Chair; Vivian Stoval - Second Vice Chair; Carolyn Boller - Secretary; Sherry Jackson - Treasurer.
The governing body of the Party is the State Central Committee, which consists of the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Democratic Party in each of Colorado's 64 counties, and "bonus" members for larger counties.
Each county party elects its officers between February 1 and February 15 of each odd-numbered year; the state party then elects its officers in March of odd-numbered years.
The Colorado Democratic Party is responsible for arranging and staging the state convention in Presidential years and the state assembly every two years. The state convention selects delegates to the Democratic National Convention and Colorado's two at-large Presidential electors. The state assembly designates candidates for statewide offices, including the offices of Governor, Attorney-General, Colorado, Treasurer, C.U. Regent At-Large, and United States Senator. The party also adopts its platform at the state assembly.
Based on its 2010 party platform, it is the party's goal to respect all people and pledge to build and maintain a nation that is secure and respected worldwide for living up to the basic principles of our Constitution and for maintaining the same high standards for all international relations, support the equal right of all people to have freedom of expression, religion and the pursuit of happiness as well as a quality public education, a clean and safe environment, a secure and healthy future, a fair living wage, secure retirement, equal opportunity, and universal access to quality health care, honor the privacy and security of every individual, and an ethical government and society that is fair, open and fully accountable to all people, realize that citizenship entails responsibility to the commonwealth of our nation and support the fair and just contribution of all citizens, and accept our fundamental responsibility to all future generations to pursue only policies that are sustainable and maintain or improve global well-being.
