A few weeks ago, I got an email from a grassroots organizer from the Obama camp. I wouldn't really call it grassroots, since I suspect she came from Obama's Senatorial staff, but anyway she wanted to meet community leaders for a cup of coffee to get some "insight". This put me in a bit of a quandary. Those who know me well, know my ideology is somewhat different than the Democratics in Washington. I ended up writing her back and saying it would be a waste of my time to meet, but she is free to post any upcoming events on my site. Since I allow all interested people to post events and don't censor events, that offer would have been given to the Hillary camp (teeth clenching) or the Cucinth camp (teeth really clenching) also. Anyway I got a response email and I would like to share it with you. If they post an event in the future, don't be surprised and if you want to volunteer, contact them directly. I really don't want to know about it. Whatever you do, just remember that her boss is a very influential person, so be respectful.
The letter follows:
Thanks for getting back to me.
As activities come up, I will post some info on your site and thank you for the suggestion.
If you know people who would like to get involved, please feel free to put them in touch with me.
We've got a great thing going over here, and we are working hard to build hope and make change happen.
