Candidate Surveys and Ratings

Our Candidate Rating Committee is hard at work developing candidate surveys for the national congressional representatives for CD3 and for those running for Mesa County Commissioners.  We expect to have responses and ratings out in early June before Primary Election ballots go out.  Be sure to check these candidate surveys and ratings on our website, share them with friends, and support candidates (regardless of party) with the courage to firmly stand up to political extremism.

First Monday Coffee Gathering

RtB members and guests have been dropping in for coffee and informal conversation at Main Street Bagels on the first Monday of each month. At the last gathering we were honored to have Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Bobbie Gross and Forward Party spokesperson Wendy Petry in attendance for their interesting perspectives on party and election processes (and some politics) in our district. 


At the next coffee we plan to discuss Cassidy Hutchinson's bestselling book Enough and events surrounding the January 6th insurrection. (Monday May 6, 9:00-10:00 AM, Main Street Bagels, 559 Main St in Grand Junction). Space is limited, please let us know you're interested at 


Main St. Bagels would appreciate purchases of beverages and/or food items.

Our Letter Writers Rock!

A big thank you to all the letter writers who so diligently convey a message of anti-extremism and civil conversation, and support for RTB through letters to the editor.  Knowing there are voices for common sense give reasonable voters the knowledge they are not alone. Working together we can off-set the loud minority of misguided souls misled by the liars, election deniers, and leaders placing their own desire for power over the good of the nation as a whole.
