Join the march for fair, transparent government

By Allison Conley Perry

Dear Editor:

In response to the firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was heading an active investigation regarding Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, a March for Truth is scheduled in Grand Junction for Saturday, June 3. Western Coloradans will be marching that day along with citizens in more than 100 cities nationwide.

Diverse Courageous Equal, Western Colorado Days of Action, and the Mesa County Democrats are hosting the local March for Truth as a part of the national movement. Marchers will gather at 9:30 a.m. at Grand Junction City Hall, 250 N. 5th Street. The march will begin at 10 a.m. Everyone is invited to participate in this peaceful, family-friendly event.

The Trump administration continues to undermine democracy through constant distortion of the truth. Allowing the truth to be dismantled is dangerous to free and fair elections. We invite patriotic western Coloradans from all backgrounds to stand with us for transparent, fair democracy.

The local March for Truth organizing committee is a nonpartisan coalition consisting of people from many different backgrounds, who are coming together to fight for transparent, democratic government.
