Good morning everyone!
I’m writing to let you know how the convention is going thus far. We haven’t had our opening session yet so no business has been discussed.
There is quite a buzz about the Bob Barr campaign both for and against him and it seems there isn’t a single delegate here without an opinion on Barr. As you all know, I am actively campaigning for George Phillies and against Bob Barr.
Things are going well for George and we’re hoping to have enough “tokens” to get him into the debate and to speak on the floor.
The Massachusetts delegation is going to hold a delegation meeting shortly and will discuss the issues at hand. The delegates are Mr. Phillies of Worcester, Mr. Torrey of Billerica, Dr. Santos of Charlton, Mr. Blau of Brookline, Ms. McMahon of Munson, and myself. All MA delegates have endorsed Mr. Phillies for President.
I’ll update again just before Shabbat, MDT.
