First Day of Canvassing

My first day of canvassing was the Day of Action for the Democrats this past Saturday. We met Senator Joe Donnelly at Tippecanoe head quarters, located at 826 Main Street in Lafayette. He gave us an inspiring launch and reminded us he was working for Hoosiers back in Washington.
I went with the two other candidates for Wabash Township Board, Michael Oxenrider and Elizabeth Tran to the Blackbird Farms neighborhood. We got to meet a couple of the neighbors who live there. One woman told the story of her husbands experience with Donald Trump. Her husband was a professional construction contractor and waited for an appointment to meet with him for a bid offer for a project. Donald strolled in late for the appointment. The gentleman sternly told him he was late. The respond from Donald Trump was simply that he was Donald Trump, as that should be enough to excuse his tardiness. Not impressed by the stardom or unprofessional behavior the contractor walked out of their meeting before it began. We expressed our shared disappointments of our current elected president and continued on our journey to the next homes. Most people weren’t home but that discussion reminded me why it is important to fight back for our country even at the lower levels of our government. Our next meeting was a young paster of a local church and his adorable little girl who had just awoken from a long afternoon nap. The day was sunny and cool. I’m sure we will come back to the neighbors of Blackbird Farms and hopefully, meet a few more of our neighbors there.
