Austin, TX – Unity Parties of Colorado and America founder, Unity Party of America Chairman, and Vice Presidential Candidate Bill Hammons (www.billisrunning.com) applauds HB-1278 from his new home in Austin, Texas.


“While I’m dismayed that the Denver Duopoly is moving to shut out all future innovations in Colorado’s political system with House Bill 1278 under the guise of so-called ‘reform,’ I have to wear the hat as outgoing leader of Colorado’s newest established political party and applaud the clanging of the gates behind our upstart organization,” says Hammons.  “These are indeed Dark Days for Democracy around the world, but it’s a little flattering that the Colorado establishment is resorting to trickery and deceit to ensure that no one will ever be able to petition a new Colorado party onto the ballot like we did more than once.”

Denver, Colorado – Former Green Party activist Gary Swing has joined the Unity Party of Colorado (www.unitypartycolorado.com) and has declared his intention to run as the Unity Party's first Congressional candidate ever in the Mile-High City of Denver.

"I'm running for Congress on a platform of peace, environmental, and election reform issues," says Swing.  "There just wasn't enough peace in the Green Party, and I'm excited to join my fellow Uniters and carry the Unity Party banner in Colorado's capital."

"I'm just as excited as Gary that Gary is running with the Unity Party in 2018," says Unity Party of Colorado Chairman Bill Hammons.  "Our voter registration numbers in Denver are second only to Arapahoe County's, and I have no doubt his candidacy will accelerate our expansion as he gives Diana DeGette a run for her money, a Member of Congress who has served long past the term limits the Unity Party advocates."
