Our past weekend at “Thunder in the City” proved to be a pleasant way to meet voters face-to-face to request their support and hear their concerns and opinions. We completed Saturday with a trip to the Cambridge Springs parade. While it began with a soggy start delayed by an hour of torrential rain and hail we finished in the sunshine seeing smiling faces all along the way.
This week was also exciting as my newly printed business cards arrived with the additions of website and Facebook connections. Additionally, with stretching of the campaign funds, Pat was able to order t-shirts which I have dubbed “purple power.” The front displays the yard sign design while we added in two lines on the back with these words: “If not now when…..2014 (next line) Vote November 4.”
The “purple power” received its first public exposure last evening at the Cochranton Parade. It was a beautiful evening, a fantastic crowd with a three car Democratic contingent. I was very pleased that Wayne Hanson (Democratic nominee for the 17th District) and I were joined by support of the Donahue, Adsit, Bradshaw and Brown families. The smaller members, all young ladies, looked great in “purple power” while they enjoyed throwing candy during the route.
