Evanston Town Meeting - Follow Up

A few people have asked me to follow this up. As you know I organized a town meeting with a friend of mine held on December 16th. It went well and we ended up having approximately 50 people in attendance. Before you make fun of that number, you should know that our senators and congresswoman don't do any better. Not to mention the unavoidable scheduling conflicts of Christmas parties, school functions and life in general. We accomplished what we set out to do, which was to learn more about a candidate for governor and some local issues. If you want to check out the video I posted it on another blog here.

We are considering trying to organize a candidate's debate but that would likely be in the beginning of June as the filing deadline for candidacy for governor is in the end of May.

I couldn't get the Mayor's bit to download properly so it isn't uploaded to the other site. (Sorry Mayor Davis!)

I enjoyed the video(s)! Thanks for posting them! It was fun to see ya (since we never see y'all!!) I think you did a great job with organizing it and with what you had to say. Well spoken, and I agree with ya (which is always a plus :) ) I think 50 people is a great turnout for this time of year...I must admit I was surprised you had that many (being Christmastime and all).

I appreciate your passion and the effort you put forth on these topics. It sounds like you know what you're talking about and most importantly YOU CARE!!

Again, great job!!

:)
