Barack Obama wasn't only winner this Tuesday. My dad, Wayne, was elected Clay County Commissioner for District 1. For those of you who don't know how my dad works, he doesn't go into things "half assed" as he would say. He has been going door to door since July handing out pamphlets and talking with people. I am proud of his hard work, positive message, and dedication to his goal.
He had a little par-tay on Tuesday night. It was cool because the Democrats and Republicans were in the same hotel too. I got to speak with our U.S. Rep Collin Peterson, met some other candidates, and saw the news people up close....no comment on that. Oh, and I also was a rebel and stole about four HUGE olives from the Republican food spread. Actually I asked the first time, but I did take the next three.
We brought Ryan along. Wow was he excited. He is almost nine and really took an interest in the election. I am seeing Ryan/Bonnie tendencies too. We both get little obsessive following the news coverage and just taking a huge interest in it all. I am glad he was a part of history being made.
Congrats dad! I love you!
