Three generations of voters
Last night during my Get Out The Vote (GOTV) calls I talked to a gentleman who is 96 years old. When I asked him if he had voted yet he told me no, but he was certainly going to! He said, "I've been voting for 75 years and I'm not about to miss this one!" Think about that for a minute. His first vote was in the 1946 mid-terms, 19 months after Harry Truman assumed office upon the death of President Roosevelt. WWII was over, but the country, once so united, was being torn apart by how best to transition from a war economy to a post-war economy. Honestly, I would have loved to have a longer conversation with him, but my GOTV calls could not wait. This primary is the first time our granddaughter, Autumn can vote. Our family takes voting very seriously and I bet your family does as well. If you have a first time voter in your house, please pass along our congratulations. Ballots are due by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, August 4.
Thanks for your support and for being a voter,
