I had the privilege of working for Neil Walter, a candidate for congress, the past few months. This experience opened my eyes in so many ways. It has made me more aware of the political system, where before I was a bit apathetic, actually. Listening to Neil speak at various events was fascinating. He is my age, but has a wealth of knowledge! More than I could hope to have.
Saturday was the state convention, and unfortunately, he lost by ONE vote. It's sad - since the vast knowledge he had about economics and finance really could have been an asset to our country. However, he is young and I have no doubt that he'll make his mark in the future.
It was truly a life changing experience for me, and I'm thankful for it!
Over 3,000 delegates showed up to the convention. You can barely see Neil on the screen behind me.
And there he is. He had the best speech that day. His cousin's son introduced him, and it was fabulous! Eleven year olds will always wow the crowd.
We were mesmerized. This was Vicki's first time volunteering at a political event. Basically, she loved it.
