Galesburg Register-Mail Article

Zinga, wearing a teal blazer, wool dress pants and flat, rubber-soled loafers made her way through a Coal Valley neighborhood with Marilyn Kieffer, the precinct committeewoman, on a Friday afternoon.

Before the two could decide if they should approach a house with a yard sign advertising a Democratic sheriff candidate, the home owner spotted her.

"I already voted for you, Andrea, and I'm a registered Democrat," said the man in a red flannel shirt, smoking a cigarette and drinking coffee out of a travel mug. "You got at least one vote."

She walked up his driveway and thanked him, but a few sentences into the conversation, a neighbor turned off his leaf blower and said, "She doesn't want to talk to you. She wants to talk to me because I'm going to vote for her."

That is absolutely fantastic. It is encouraging to hear of those who tend to differ with us in political views showing their support. I believe that much of this support comes from those who truly understand the stakes and are not satisfied with the standard politics as usual approach.
By the way feel free to check out my web page designed to raise awareness of the importance of the stakes at hand in this election. geocities.com/politicalreformus@sbcglobal.net
