Delegate to Democratic National Convention raising funds for trip

Fundraising for Philly trip

Delegate to the Democratic National Convention Erin Biggs of Steamboat Springs is fundraising for an expensive trip to Philadelphia in late July.

— Steamboat Springs Resident Erin Biggs, who will represent Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia July 25 through 28, is asking for help from friends and neighbors in Steamboat and Routt County with fundraising for her trip.

Hotel rooms at the convention cost $600 per night, in addition to airfare, food and other incidentals. Biggs has created a fundraising website at generosity.com/volunteer-fundraising/elevate-bernie-with-erin-biggs and needs to raise at least $2,300 by June 25. Biggs, who is the office manager for the Steamboat Springs Public Defender, describes herself as an ardent Bernie Sanders supporter.
