Got Paloma Capanna's e-blast update, so I figured I'd fill you all in with the highlights.
Since early October, the people in this District have brought me their concerns, from the local economy and job loss, to uninsured medical costs, to the inability to live on Social Security income when property taxes and medical insurance premiums are rising. I have yet to meet someone who doesn't have a political concern.
I am speaking out on issues. People are listening. We are coming together to move through a complex juncture of local economic revitalization, at the same time as a complex mix of national fiscal crisis and international security weaknesses.
This area. This country. We have the spirit, the determination, and the desire to work through problems. I am ready to lead the charge for change. Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and work on a campaign to bring about that change? The policy experts in Washington want to know.
Phew! Paloma didn't slow down for a second. She was in campaign meetings from one end of the week to the other, from Rochester to Syracuse. In between, she was in Washington, D.C. for two days of media interviews, National Campaign Team meetings, and Political Action Committee interviews. She presented at the Monroe County Democratic Committee.
She is also having a fundraiser in Syracuse tonight:
Thursday, February 23, 2006 (5-7 pm) at Kitty Hoyne's Traditional Irish Pub & Restaurant.
And She will be speaking to the Syracuse University Young Democrats tomorrow, Friday, at 2 pm. I don't know where on campus, so feel free to e-mail me with any further details.
