Convention looking for volunteer housing

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The Colorado Democratic Party notes the Denver Convention Host Committee is looking for housing for volunteers for next August:

The Denver 2008 Host Committee is looking for volunteer housing. While many of the volunteers for the 2008 Democratic National Convention will be from Colorado, some of those volunteers will come from outlying areas around the state. Also recruitment is going on in surrounding states. Most hotel rooms locally will be used to house state delegations, press, and others associated with the convention. If you know of someone who has extra room during next August, please contact Sondra Williams, Volunteer Coordinator at or 303-534-6200.

Apparently no one is really in charge of housing for the 35,00-50,000 non-Denver volunteers estimated to be coming here. Citing "insurance issues" and too much else to do, Marie, who answered the number posted here, advised me that residents should offer their houses on Craig's List or check for realtors at "Denver Short Term Housing" on Google. That Googling only turns up firms that help executive relocate between moves.
This is pretty sad, people.
