Can you believe it..

As secretary of the district that I live in, sometimes I get asked to e-mail a note, or something small. Well, not today. I got asked to put together two press advisories and one flier to go out via e-mail to the town committee members who want to see..Al Sharpton! I know that there are some people who hate him (my husband included) for what he did in the Tawana Brawley controversy (1987) as well as several others. But, a lot of the people that I know think he is a good man, and because of him things have changed, however I don't know if they have changed for the betterment or worst for his words.

However Al Sharpton is coming tomorrow at 7 PM to get a rally going to get people motivated to GOTV and I hope it works!  He also plans to talk about the upcoming election and the fact that there are only 2 African American women running  for 4 seats for BoE, and since there are 59% of students that are a minority, they should be represented. I have a feeling it won't be dull tomorrow!

  1. I think you are right. Things are rarely boring where Al Sharpton is concerned.
