Ms. Linda Salas
Boulder County Clerk

Dear Ms. Salas,
Today’s Colorado Daily contains the following statement:
“According to Halicki, a number of Democrat and Republican members of the canvass board signed the report, but Al Kolwicz, Republican Party appointee, refused to sign.”
As you were legally informed, the Boulder County Republican Party legally appointed Al Kolwicz as the only Republican member of the canvass board. Temporary workers selected and paid by the clerk’s office do not represent the Boulder County Republican Party and are not authorized to sign the canvass report for the Republican Party.
If you know of a legal provision that empowers you to pick your own Republican members of the canvass board, please identify this provision.
Otherwise, please take necessary steps to repair any damage that you have caused by incorrectly asserting that “a number of Republican members of the canvass board signed the report.”
Republican Representative to the Boulder County Canvass Board
