Letter: Definition of 'caucus'

Published: Wednesday, March 26 2014 12:00 a.m. MDT

Kerry Soelberg in his article of March 25 clearly indicates his understanding of a caucus as a meeting. My dictionary, however, also defines a caucus as a group of people with shared concerns within a political party. If more people would acknowledge this broader meaning of caucus their satisfaction with the process would be enhanced.

How about discussing issues of common interest with like-minded neighbors in the days, weeks, and months preceding the caucus meeting? How about distributing written statements of your personal positions on important issues? You may be pleased with the results.
