Got some catching up to do. Friday night, the family went to Little Big Cup, then to NuNu's for some socializing and entertainment, then met with a friend before finally getting home, who reminded me that signs don't vote.
Everywhere I go, I'm getting great encouragement and support. Some of that is first hand, some second hand. I try not to get overly confident, but if I want to begin implementing some of my 10-point plan on day one, I have to start preparing. Point #1 is well underway. #6 and #8 have really caught on with the citizens -- both require some coordination and planning, so I have to act as if I'm going to win, even though I know the outcome could be different.
Saturday, James and I put up another banner. We then went to the nursing home to see my brother. While there, I spoke with other supporters. Some votes are promised from some of the residents there who knew my parents; other votes are promised from their family members.
Today, as a member of the KC's, I worked with fellow members on the bar-b-que and cake sale. Ginger baked a cake, she and James helped pack the lunches. Emily, Jeremy and the twins came to church with us and we just soaked it all in! Love having family around! This afternoon, the 3rd banner was placed.
I am two streets shy of having canvassed the entire town limits. I will go back around to catch the ones who were not home. I was encouraged as I spoke with citizens; the overwhelming sentiment is that they want someone with experience and leadership skills; a real all-round professional. When I decided to run, my instinct was just that. I based my whole campaign on what I believed the town wanted, and certainly what the town needs and deserves. I know in my core that I can deliver.
I'm looking for volunteers for election day. If anyone is interested, please get in contact with me - email me at email@example.com; or firstname.lastname@example.org.
