What a full day of campaigning, starting with an Appreciation Pancake Breakfast given by the Allen County Democrat Party and ending with a Meet & Greet hosted by Joann Sandlin, we keep working to get out the vote.
The Allen County Democrats welcomed more than 50 poll workers and voters to say Thank You with a Pancake breakfast. It was exciting to feel the energy and set the stage for November 6th. Candidates in attendance were Joe Donnelly, Kevin Boyd, Tom Keen, Mike Wilber, Win Moses, Gina Burgess, Denny Sprunger and myself.
After enjoying the breakfast, Congressman Joe Donnelly (candidate for Senate) and I went to Indiana’s NAACP Education Summit. Here we listened to the unbalance of education and discipline on African-American kids, more specifically our young men. I was sad to hear that some educators are still finding it difficult to related to kids of diversity.
Next campaign stop was the South Side Fest which was COMPLETELY FUN! This fest is a free event for the community and was well attended. Kids were able to enjoy bouncy houses, free hair do’s and hair cuts, along with watching free talent shows. I personally enjoyed watching the kids run around and have fun, seeing their smiles made it worth my time.
Ending the evening I spent time with my new friends at a Meet and Greet at Pizza Hut, where we talked politics and kids. A busy day but well worth it!
