Around the City in 80 Days

Well today there are 80 days until the primary.

Canvassing was very hot today, as it has been every time I have been out since June.

For humor sake we were caught in mid-afternoon storm which made us look like a couple of drowned rats! We stopped there and went back and dried off and changed clothes and went back out for another 2 1/2 hours of canvassing.

All those who want to lose weight, forget the Atkins or any other of the diets out there, just run for office and go door to door, you will take the weight off and tone the muscles, I am speaking from experience on this one.

Each precinct is roughly 300 houses and we tend to hit about 85-90% of them. The reasons for not hitting them all is mainly 1)they may not be registered voters or 2) as was the case this afternoon and evening several of the places were empty. Today we finished one complete precinct and began another before the Candidate wore out!

Filing deadline is coming, we fell short on the Pre-Check with the Board of Election. We had over the required amount, but apparently they found fault with a few more than we anticipated, so now we have to go back and pick up a few more before the end of the week.

Finally, I would like to thank DaGoddess for the kind words of encouragement on the campaign. Turns out she is a product of a former Lakewood resident! You can see her at her site I have added her to the list off to the right.
Good Luck with the surgery DG!

I have decided that every week I would try and write a little background on each of the blogs off to right, so that when you click on one you will have a little better understanding of the site. Of course if you know of a site that interests you, pass it along in the comments.
