I started my Sunday by attending Katherine Friedman’s (running for Linwood City Council) coffee and conversation event where I met new voters and we had some great discussions. Then it was off to Somers Point to canvass and talk to voters. Next a reconnaissance mission putting my signs up in Linwood Northfield Atlantic City and Ventnor. Now I’m home and preparing for my debate on Wednesday night. I’m so tired; my ankle is bleeding from cutting on a rock while putting up signs and I really really miss my grandchildren. So why am I doing it you might ask? I’m doing it for all the people I’ve met on the campaign trail worried about their taxes; worried about their houses flooding; worried whether their children’s schools are getting the proper funding. THIS is why!! We need people on the Freeholder board who care about our citizens and are always willing to stand up, speak up and do the right thing! I will sleep after the election; my ankle will heal; and I will make up Grammy time on November 7th. But until then, there’s no rest for the weary.
