A story in Wednesday’s Post Independent discussed who donated to presidential campaigns from the 81601 ZIP code covering Glenwood Springs. The story neglected to examine the 81602 ZIP code, where a large amount of money came from three donors. The ZIP code includes the post office in Glenwood Springs. From 81602, attorney Scott Balcomb and retired Glenwood resident Carole Brown donated $2,300 each to John McCain’s presidential campaign. Attorney Diane Delaney also donated $750, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. One donation to Barack Obama of $400 also came from the 81602 ZIP code. From both ZIP codes combined covering the Glenwood area, McCain received $7,350 while Obama received $5,525. Based on the single ZIP code, the story incorrectly said Obama had raised more funds in the Glenwood area than McCain.
