Hello everybody!!

I would like to update all the things that happened up to and including post election misc……

I was campaigning from Barstow to Santa Clarita!   We had many people from the 25th CD and even people from other areas calling to get out the vote!

It was a tight election, very close for Mckeon!  I think that is great!!

One good thing that has happened in this election, (l no matter what some of the people say), we can say “President Obama!!” Yeah!

I would like you to know how much I appreciate all your votes and all you have done to get me to election day with the highest vote count ever in the 25th Congressional District! I could never have got this far without all of you!

I have met alot of great Californians during my campaign and still have contact with many!

People have asked me if I will run for the 2010 election–I have not decided.

You know campaigns cost money and time or visa versa….so I would like to let you know what kind of dollars were spent for this race for the 25th CD!

Well, Buck McKeon(Republican), spent over$ 800,000.000.

I spent about $10,000.00 due to the incredible grass roots volunteer effort! While that got us far, I will need more paid advertising (radio and TV) to inform people about the many issues Buck falls short on is needed, not just after a primary, but in the year leading up to the general election!

If I run for office again,  I need to reach the people who did not vote for me and the ones who might not come out to vote in a non-presidential cycle election.  It is costly to run and Buck Mckeon has already began collecting his $$money for his new Campaign to run for Re-election!!

I know  that I will  need $100,000.00 at least!   I need  more  money and more  volunteers, to make that happen!

So, that’s the hard part and I have to ask people for contributions, (not to exceed $2,300.00 per election cycle)

and….that’s so much money in this awful economy….Let’s discuss this and don’t be shy!

Go Visit a local Fair!

September 1, 2008

Hello-I am having a great time visiting with people at the Antelope Valley Fair! There are some great shows and Exhibits this year!  As usual there is great food and conversations!  I like their new facility and it’s well organized!

Coming in September is the Los Angeles County Fair!  I enjoy that Fair, too.  Our family goes to thet Fair every year as we enjoy the beautiful gardens, the great music and shows, Exhibit Halls,and the food! It’s worthwhile going to!

I am a past board member of the 28th Agricultural District.  The Fair it’s self is located in Victoville.  Before I was a Board member, my husband and I used to take our children there when they participated in the 4-H program!   I love seeing the new young faces involved in 4-H and the FFA programs. There is also Grange members and Independents!  Our family continues to go every year!  All our Fairs have rich educational values, they teach great work ethics and team work!

I just want to encourage everyone to take the opportunity and go to the Fairs! I know there are alot of  good movies, but Fairs are something all family members and friends can enjoy together and build new memories!  Whether a Fair is local or a little further away, Fairs are part of the backbone of our America and a part of our great heritage!
