Update on Washington

In a word - FABULOUS



Clint, Lauren Hallahan and I spent last week in Washington . We set the intention to go with the flow, to have an effective and successful trip, and be open to opportunities that might arise. And so it was!


We had one appointment scheduled on Monday with Hilary Shelton Director of the NAACP Washington Bureau. After listening carefully to the results of our Walking for Democracy and Clint’s recommendations for effective Election Reform, he gave us people to contact that he felt should hear about the work we are doing and Clint’s ideas on reform. He asked Clint to create a “White Paper” on Volusia County describing the ways in which the county made it harder for voters to get to the polls.



If you have any information on Volusia or any other county, please let me know.


Following that meeting we went to the Hill to see what just might unfold. Often on the Hill, as in life, it takes persistence and being in the right place at the right time to get things to happen. We went to Congressman Kucinich’s office first. Perfect timing -He just happened to pop out of his office at that moment. After introducing us to his legislative assistant in charge of Election Reform, he asked us to walk down the hall with him. He discussed the possibility of having Clint testify at upcoming hearing about how easy it is to manipulate the vote and what is needed for reform.
