Today it is 60 days until the primary and if all goes well in 95 days we have the general election.

Have continued to go door to door, we are approaching the 3000 doors and talking to well over a 1000 people. As you can tell, we are talking to someone about every third house. We are getting to the point were we are finishing a precinct every day and half that we are out. There are 65 precincts between the 4 Wards. We won't be able to get to all 65, because election rules preclude candidates from entering Apartment buildings for canvassing.

Funny thing happened earlier this week, we were out finishing up a precinct and we were half way done with a street and we hadn't talked to anyone, didn't think much of it since it was dinner time and a lot of people don't answer the door. But we found out the street was without power, so no doorbells were working, OH WELL! Guess I'll have to the use the old fashioned way -- will need lots of ice for the knuckles!!

Tomorrow there is an Art Festival so we will be donning TIM CARROLL shirts and strolling Detroit Rd to get some name recognition and visibility.

Next major hurdle fundraising, we need to buy the yard signs and have the mailers made up for September.

One final thought, say a prayer for the men and women who wear a uniform in the US Armed Forces. Especially for those Marine families who have lost love ones right here in Metro Cleveland Area this past week.
