Twofer: Young Dems Convention & Reception for Larry Kissell on Saturday 3/24

Don't miss two important events this coming Saturday. The Young Democrats of North Carolina will be holding their 2007 Spring Convention in Greensboro with Artur Davis (remember him?) giving the keynote address.

Congressman Brad Miller and Congressman David Price with Larry Kissell

At noon on Saturday there will be a reception fundraiser for Larry Kissell. Tickets are $100 per couple or $50 per person. It will be held in the Kouri Center, so will be convenient for conference attendees. I haven't confirmed if you must pay for the convention if you are just going to attend the Kissell reception, but I will check on this. If you can't attend, but would like to offer Larry early support, please visit his web site or go to Act Blue. This is my current page with Larry's new ActBlue account for '07/'08.

The Young Dem convention looks like it is going to be terrific and certainly worth attending. There are more dignitaries attending than I remember seeing at the North Carolina Democratic Convention last July. The basic entry fee is $25 if you are 35 or under or if you are a member of Senior Dems. Teen Dems attend for $20 and f you do not fall within these age groups your rate is $35. You may go here to purchase tickets or donate.

Congressman Artur Davis is the keynote speaker from Alabama's 7th District. He's an enthusiastic Larry Kissell supporter and campaigned for him in Charlotte and promoted him within the DCCC.

Here's the deal, Cubby

If you don't come, I'll run for chair of the MCDP, and with my newfound "power" I'll blacklist you across the state.

I wish I could be there.

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

Fayetteville Observer

There is an article about Larry in the Fayetteville Observer this morning. Somebody who knows how to link would be doing me a favor since I don't know how.


The Convention

should be a good one. The sessions will be of interest not only to the YDs but to Dems in general. There will also be new leadership elected at the convention this year as all the current leadership
(except for the assemblyman) will not be running for reelection or will be running for a different office. Regardless of the outcome, the YDs are looking to have another strong year.

He has to win

or I have to move. I'm tired of people looking at me like I am crazy when I tell them that Larry Kissell is my congressman. You wouldn't believe how many people don't know who there congressman is. I know I'm not being PC, but oh, well. Got to go home.


at least you are in the district

Imagine how wierd my Kissell for Congress bumper sticker looks when I live 1 1/2 to 3 hours from most of the district.
