The Great Divide Debate

Let’s talk about divides. Besides the Continental Divide, perhaps the greatest divide in Colorado is the generational divide when it comes to political views and voting intentions. The youth vote is growing more passionate, more politically active on social media and thus more critical this election year. This young vote is thought by many to have deciding power in national, regional and even local elections.

In this fun, interactive evening event, listen to what Eagle County’s youngest voters and their more mature voting counterparts from the older generations have to say about their priorities for the next president and administration at first ever “Great Divide Debate.”

Moderated by newly elected Minturn Mayor Matt Scherr, the event will compare the ideology and passions of high school seniors from each of our Valley’s high schools with those of local adults in what is sure to be an exciting and insightful debate!
