Jackson Republican fundraiser prompts protest
August 12, 2021
JACKSON — At 73, Jorge Colon had never been to a protest.
That changed Thursday, when he and a crowd of more than 20 other people gathered at the corner of Spring Gulch Road and Highway 22 to protest an evening fundraiser for some of the most conservative members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
People waved signs that said, “Vote Liz,” “Trump is the Big Liar” and “Stop Funding Hate.”
Most of the people who drove past and reacted — usually by honking a horn — gave passersby a thumbs-up. Some flipped protestors the bird. Colon said he received two middle fingers.
