|Somebody asked me a few days ago who I’ve met on the campaign trail. That answer, truth be told, is pretty long. But here we go:
- Just last weekend, I met Juana, a 35-year-old from East Penn who told me she’s thinking about sitting out this election because “no matter who she votes for, nothing changes.” She was upset that she lives paycheck to paycheck, is underemployed, and hears all the good news of the economy which has changed her life little. I looked behind her and saw her daughter, about 8 or 9 years old, and I said, “Don’t vote for you or me, vote for her.” We had a good hug at the door. She’ll be at the polls on November 5th
- The concern about the future of Scott Farm in Middlesex Township brought me to Carl, a 61-year-old who helped me circulate a petition to help me bring federal attention to this important landmark on the Appalachian Trail.
- Anna is a 40-year-old conservative Republican from Hampden who worked for John McCain. We had a good chat about what he stands for, and she said she always supports the candidate based upon the ideas they bring to the table. She said she heard the buzz about me when I knocked on her door and will be supporting me on November 5th.
