Voter Registration Drive on Saturday!

We have some exciting news to share with you! Last week we learned that Melissa Bean will serve as one of three national co-chair’s for Barack Obama’s Vote For Change voter registration drive. Vote for Change, is an unprecedented 50-state voter registration and mobilization drive. The goal is to register millions of new voters by election day.

Recent voter registration drives have registered more than 200,000 new Democrats in Pennsylvania, more than 165,000 new Democrats in North Carolina, and more than 150,000 new Democrats in Indiana. Those numbers just scratch the surface of what’s possible.

Melissa will be leading the kick-off in Round Lake, along with State Senate Candidate and Round Lake Mayor Bill Gentes, at his campaign headquarters in Round Lake.

There will be a speaker, a brief training, then we will hit the pavement to register new voters! Help make this a success!

Please sign-up and join us at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 10th, at: Bill Gentes for Senate Campaign Headquarters

Senate Democratic Fundraiser last Monday Night!
I attended a fundraiser in Springfield last week, which was very useful to me because I was able to put quite a few faces to names I have been talking to on the phone. Face to face is always good! I can safely say that I have now met every Democratic Senator in the state. All my future colleagues! I can also safely say that I have met quite a few lobbyist’s.

I also met most of the other candidates for the other senate seats and was impressed, but also noticed that I was much more organized! The picture is of the Senate floor after the Senate finished for the day a few weeks ago.
