I've been thinking..
Today I started thinking about all the politicians I have seen in the last two days and I came up with a new stat: the US Congressman, US Senate Candidate, State Senator, State Rep's, Gubernatorial Candidates, local mayoral candidates, Republican and Democrat Common Council Candidates, it was the local candidates who never thanked me for inviting them. And, truth be told, it was some of the Democrats who never said thank you, not the Republicans. Everyone else, Congressman Himes, State Senator Bob Duff, Merrick Alpert, Mayor Don Malloy, they all took the time to thank me. Not that I wasn't doing my job as secretary of the event, but to find and come up and thank me individually made me proud of each and every one of them, thats all. People who know who put them in office and make sure to thank them get a higher mark, in my book, then those who just expected to be there. Maybe if more people thanked each other and asked what can they do to help each other, we would all be in a better place.
