Independence Day weekend, Part II

July 6, 2010

The rigors of the campaign trail frequently leave us skipping meals while jumping from one town to another.  Fortunately, this was not the case on Independence Day morning.  Our campaign team was lucky enough to start the day off with a breakfast hosted by the Highland Engine Fire Company No. 1 in Cornwall.  We shared coffee and conversation with Cornwall Councilwoman Mary Beth Greene-Kraft and Town Clerk Elaine Schneer and left ready to tackle the rest of the day’s events.

Our team moved on next to the Independence Day Festival in Cornwall. We were met by our friend and West Point history professor Rob McDonald, who showed us around and introduced us to a bunch of new friends.  We visited Sands-Ring Homestead, a landmark dating back to the mid-18th century, which left us ready for a renewal of the founding principles that made our nation the greatest in the world.

Nan at the Great American Weekend

Nan at the fair in Goshen

We started our holiday weekend in Goshen taking part in a longtime institution in Orange County, the “Great American Weekend” street fair. The Orange County Republican Committee set up a tent near the Presbyterian Church, and the enthusiasm we saw for our candidates was very heartwarming. We met and talked with fairgoers for hours, lots of people put their signatures to petitions, and the Young Voters even boosted their numbers when a few volunteers expressed an interest in helping out! All in all, a great success, and a memorable morning and early afternoon.

Sunday in the Park with friends old and new!

Nan Hayworth speaks
Nan rouses the crowd

Edward Ryan’s Memorial Park in Kent was full of Nan Hayworth supporters Sunday at a barbecue event, with good food, good entertainment, and good company.  Kudos to Corrinne and Joe DiVestea for brilliantly managing the logistics and for doing the huge amount of legwork to set everything up; to master chefs Lou Tartaro, Lana Cappelli, Karl Rohde, and Jack Hufnagel for manning the hot grills; and to the Young Voters and our other volunteers for covering the tables.  The sausage and peppers, burgers, hot dogs, and Caesar salad, among other dishes and an array of desserts, were a terrific lunch for more than 80 guests (including one surprise guest!).

End of Quarter 30/30 VISION DRIVE!

June 25, 2010


Nan Hayworth 30/30 Vision Drive(Note: This post is bumped to the top of the blog until after our 30/30 Vision Drive ends on June 30. Scroll down for our newest blog posts!)

Our blog’s been telling the story every day:  this Congress and Administration are working as hard as they can to consolidate the government’s dominance over our lives, and over the free market that throughout America’s extraordinary history has lifted more millions from poverty to prosperity than in any other country in history.  Why is our government doing this?  Because Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and President Obama are convinced that they know better than you do.  And John Hall’s voted with them time and time again., voting with Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ party line 98% of the time.  He’s voted with them for every spending program to expand a bloated federal government that commands ever more of your hard-earned dollars, and is smothering our local economy and withering the market for jobs and opportunity.  John Hall doesn’t trust you to know how to work, save, spend, and invest right here at home, to grow the economy and jobs in our own communities.

Well, I do trust you, and I trust the wisdom of the Founders who gave us such precious and empowering freedoms in our Constitution.  And I need you to join me in this campaign to renew America’s promise.  To renew our faith in the Constitution that wisely limited the powers of the government.  To renew our economy and create jobs by relieving our citizens of confiscatory taxation and enterprise-strangling regulation.  My simple mission is to let you keep more of what you work so hard to earn, so that you can spend and invest and renew the economy right here at home, and renew the opportunities that our friends and neighbors here so urgently need.

Please join our 30/30 Vision Drive by contributing $30 or more before June 30, and help ensure that our campaign to renew a future of opportunity in District 19, and in our nation, has the fuel it needs to power us over the summer towards Election Day.  And, after you contribute what you can spare, please tell 10 friends (or 30 friends!) to do the same.  Onward together, and thank you!

There’s No Debating Us (never mind the trackers)!

June 18, 2010

June 15 was a beautiful day in Hopewell Junction. It was a pleasure to hold a small event there with Nan (many thanks to our hosts and friends at the Joe DiMaggio American Legion Lounge 2248). And what a surprise to find not one, but two video stalkers joining us at the behest of John Hall’s campaign!
