I worked the 7-10 shift last night (Friday) for the Nevada County Republican Central Committee and it as usual was busy and a blast. I shared the duty with Peter and Nacy Brost and the place was hopping. We are down the same aisle as the dems and unfortunately for them they have to watch all those people coming over to our booth and bypassing theirs. Some liberals in our community say we are a "purple" county but it doesn't make the grade of reality. Our county is an R or "red" county and no matter how much the lefty Obama fans think otherwise, the facts are the facts.
I was pleased to watch a 18 year old student register for the first time and guess which party box she checked? Yep, R. We also have petitions for various issues (union dues) and a informal one as well. The informal petition is to ask the Citizen's Commission on Redistricting to allow a minority opinion to be published. It appears the Commission has been hijacked by the democrats and our once great state will be further thrown down the leftwing crapper after they issue their maps. Why not allow a minority opinion we ask? Fear the people will see first hand how the liberal hegemony will be maintained I guess.
My daughter and grandson came along with a few other friends. I have found that over the years if you stay in one place at the fair, eventually you see everybody. Great fun and I am doing it again tonight. Nice to see Barry and Kim Pruett and their kids too. What a nice family.
