What a Difference a Year Makes!

I was  thrilled by both the turnout and reception we Democrats recieved this past weekend at the Greenville Danish Festival!

When I participated last year, it was apparent that many did not feel safe or comfortable cheering during the parade or stopping by the Dem booth in Veteran's Park.  It seems, however, that I'm not the only one fed-up with being bullied by our conservative neighbors.  Instead of shying away, people were boisterous and eager to discuss both their concerns and their enthusiasm for local Democratic candidates.

Hooray!  The "blue wave" has finally washed over Montcalm County and washed away the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness so many of us have felt in the past few elections.

I am more confident now than ever that this election cycle will be a solid win for working-class folks like us.
