Excitement builds

In two weeks, I will be in Charlotte, preparing for the Democratic National Convention and beginning to participate in the many events scheduled for the week. Every day now, more things are added to my calendar. Receptions, forums, luncheons, and caucus meetings and so far, those are just the LGBT focused events. I know many more will be added in the next couple of weeks.

I am still a few hundred dollars short of my fundraising goal, however. If I can raise just $300 more, then I will be able to fully enjoy this without worrying about finances.

Will you be able to help me with this? A secure payment can be made here:

New Adventures, New Content

So much is happening now that we are getting into the political season. I will be heading to Charlotte as part of the Oregon Delegation to the Democratic National Convention. While I will be there, I will use this space to fill you in on everything that is happening, from my perspective.

Additionally, there are things I have written or will be writing about some of of the candidates and campaigns to pay attention to this year. I will be posting several of those.

I hope you will read this to follow along with everything I write.
