I just came from a get together with some of the Democrat candidates, both local and statewide.

It was a fun time for everyone, good fellowship and great desserts.

Several of the candidates were there and gave a short talk, and talked with each of us individually.

  • Sam Locke, a very busy man, is having a bowling fundraiser next Wednesday 9/29 at Hoosier Lanes, 7:00.
  • Shane Gibson has been going door to door and has a couple of commercials showing on local TV stations.
  • Jim Frieberger and Dan Voyles have been campaigning in their districts for the County Council.
  • Patty Walker is having a hat show/fundraiser at the Division St. School, this Saturday 9/25.
  • Chuck Frieberger was not present but his campaign manager was. I asked where Chuck stood on the tolls for the bridges and his answer was a resounding NO TOLLS. Chuck sensibly believes that it is unfair to ask Kentuckiana residents to pay for bridges when the funds are already in place, besides who can afford to pay $6.00 a day just to go to work?
  • Vop Osili, candidate for Secretary of State will be at Schad & Schad Law Firm offices tomorrow 5:30 to 7:30 for a meet and greet.

Stacy Deck, VP of the Floyd County Central Committee, believes that we have a great slate of candidates and I agree.

We need to support these people with our votes and donations &/or volunteering if possible. But most importantly our votes.
