20161006_170602It has been a whirlwind in the office these last two weeks.  I hope that things have been going well for you.  Mary Mann has sent out flyers about the HOT Fair and Rodeo and we look pretty good.  We still need a new volunteers next week.  Please feel free to email Mary or me if you have some time to spare.

We have an upcoming Debate Watch party on Sunday night.  Hope you can make it.  Poppa Rollo’s West Bank Room.  We have Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa coming to town for a rally on October 18.  Congressman Joaquin Castro coming to town to rally voters on October 24.  We have a third speaker that is a dynamo but she has not been confirmed as of this writing.
I went home last night completely distraught. I thought the election venom was at an all time high.  Then the audio of Donald Trump emerged.  I was literally sick to my stomach.  I fell asleep for an hour of so in the early evening (it had been a very long day).  I awoke to the actual video and audio and commentary and I could not go back to sleep. I have still not slept over an hour or so since last night’s revelation.  I am sure you have been struggling with this as well. It is not funny any more.  It was never actually funny, but you know what I mean. We must do everything in our power to make sure that Hillary Clinton wins this election.
We must get out and vote.  And take everyone we know with us.  We have 7 more weeks to convince citizens that Donald Trump is a dangerous man.  And he is a vulgar man.  I could not stop thinking of our grandkids.  They deserve better.  The men and women of the military that protected our way of life deserve better. Our families deserve better.  We all deserve better.  Stronger together, as she says.
Campaign signs:  We have a bunch of big signs to put out at prominent and safe locations until election day.  4 ft X 8 ft.  And a lot of yard signs. Some will go to the early voting sites.  Others will go to the Vote Centers.  Some need to go on the roadside.  I need a road crew one day next week to go out and help put up signs.  We have the posts and the twist ties.  I need some rough and ready guys and gals to so some beautification of our roadsides!  Call 254-722-8940 if you would like to volunteer.  I have a post driver and posts.
Also, WE NEED POLL WATCHERS.  YOU WILL BE TRAINED.  IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE EYES AND EARS AT EACH OF THE 32 POLLING PLACES. It is a very simple task, involves no real confrontation, and will serve as a sign for voters to behave themselves when they enter the polling places.  If you can volunteer for this job on election day, please contact me at 254-722-8940.  We also need drivers to drive people to the polls. Contact the office at 254-301 7648.
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for all that you have done to further the work of the Democratic Party in McLennan County.  We have a tremendous family of volunteers.  We have people all over the county doing all that they can do!  We are blessed.  When this is all over, we will get together and celebrate.  And we will have things to celebrate. We are growing the Party and setting the stage for the 2018 elections in Texas.
