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!).
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!
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!
