Safe travels, Cubby. I'll miss you.

It doesn't seem like it has been almost two years since we got together at Tami's house to shoot the documentary. Boy, that was a crazy night. We waited forever for the film crew to arrive and then couldn't seem to shut up once the cameras started rolling.

I'll never forget how surprised both Tami and I were to meet this punk kid who was still a student at State because the guy who had been writing and commenting at BlueNC certainly didn't sound like a college student.

Then came the Kissell campaign. How fun was that? Remember the bitch sessions strategy meetings over lunch with Tami and Dan? I think back about how frantic and hectic those months seemed as Larry inched closer and closer to Robin Hayes

Now, Larry leads Robin in the uninformed, head-to-head vote and I can't help but think that your hard work had a little something to do with that.

I guess once you graduated from college I knew somewhere in the back of my mind that you would....well...get a job and maybe move. New Hampshire was one thing. It was a campaign job. But Nevada? Seriously, Cubby, that's just too far away!

Organizing for SEIU isn't exactly going to look bad on your resume, though, so I guess we'll have to settle for the occasional phone calls and chat sessions. Hopefully, you'll find time to blog a little too.

Be safe. I'll miss you.

Be careful

Call if you need anything.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Careful

Will --

Be careful up there -- I have heard horror stories about folks at SEIU. However, I am sure you will do fine.

Very sweet.

Thanks for writing this.

My cell phone is charged

When he was driving to New Hampshire he called when he got bored. He probably has all our numbers lined up so he can call until he reaches someone.

hehehe...

He got me on the way home from New Hampshire!

Good luck will.

Remember, what you do in vegas stays in vegas, but what you learn in nevada comes back to NC.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Have a great time Will. I'm sure we'll cross paths again.

Good luck, Will!

Here's hoping that one day you'll come back to organize for the NCDP. :)

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

I'm glad you finally have a job

that doesn't involve people named Robin and/or people who grew up around the Sandhills.

I could say something else here, but I'll probably talk to you a few times before you're able to read this again.

Ouch, that stings-

...especially after the unhealed wounds from the primary.

Very very funny, Mr. Spencer. Someday, Cubb will look back fondly at this election cycle and remember when. Ok.... it will be a looooong time from now.

As some of you may know, Will started his trek to Reno 911 to win the great State of Nevada for Obama. He was spotted in Canton last evening - partying with all the great Cantonese partiers. I hope he doesn't forget us back here in lil ole North Carolina as he wins the jackpot from betting his huge campaign salary in Vegas. Sam, I assume you've heard that Nevada pays 2x what a campaign staffer earns here in N.C.-- and at half the hours. He'll have long stretches of downtime with nothing to do until November but hang out at the local pub driving all those right-wingers crazy. Ooops... I forgot Cubb enjoys doing that to the left as well....

I can't begin to tell you how much I am going to miss the greatest campaign manager ever!!!!

Robin Anderson for Labor Commissioner

Oh, it's not you :-P

But after BS tried to unseat a Robin, then worked for a guy from Robbins, and then tried to elect a Robin, I don't see what he could do in the world of Robins, aside from a write-in campaign or a Court Appointee nomination fight. And if he worked for a third person who grew up in the Sandhills, I just wouldn't know what to say ... sometimes you just gotta do something new. :(

Have fun, Will. :)

Just remember: if you go play the slots, leave your ATM and credit cards somewhere else...

See ya later

See ya later agitator

Please observe growth management in Vegas

Our little Will!

All grown up!

How time has flown these last two years...I'm so, so proud of you, Will, and know that you will be outstanding at your new job!

Be sure to keep us posted on how it goes, and when you're ready, call me for the pork roast recipe. ; )

Good luck, Will

As a wise woman once said, eat the lemons. Metaphorically this time.

Hey, I was at that Mallard Creek Barbeque (pictured above), standing three people down from you (hidden by the guy in the hat). If only I had known . . . .

Hope not

I try to hide behind guys in hats. :)

Congrats on your new job Will!

I know you'll miss NC but at least the weather is better in Nevada than in NH. ;)

Hope you have a little time to blog to keep us posted on what you are up to.
