Ritter and Obama to lead service initiative; no, we’re not talking about Bill and Barack
In a press release sent to media by the Democratic National Convention Committee, which is organizing the big shindig in Denver next month, organizers said Obama and Ritter will co-chair the DNC Delegate Service Day on Aug. 27.
The service day, which will take place one day before Barack Obama gives his acceptance speech at Invesco Field, has been a major focus of the DNCC.
Last month, Gov. Ritter joined Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius in Denver to roll out a statewide “Convention Captain” program that would in part organize community service events in each Colorado county to take place at the same time DNC delegates are giving back to the Denver metro area.
