Weekend Update Oct. 24-25

I've made two separate entries below for this weekend outlining the progress I've made_with the campaign.

Saturday Campaign Update:
Several meetings were in the morning. I was filled in on some local Southport issues from a few Sasquanaug members. There is plenty of work to do in that area.
During the rainy afternoon I took a break from the campaign. Asa new board member at the Fairfield Arts Council I felt that it was important to meet with their Executive Director now vs after the campaign. Lots of work ahead of me and I always like to jump right into things. After that meeting I attended an FAC sponsored book signing at Borders for Bruce Pollock's "By the Time We Got to Woodstock: The Great Rock ’n’ Roll Revolution of 1969"
Final stop was a meeting with Joe Demartino (running for RTM-4) (link below). He's running too and we both bounced some ideas around for our campaigns. Very helpful for both sides.

Sunday Campaign Update:
Today was a beautiful day in Fairfield! So...Lots of events and walking!
Started the day off at the Junior Women's Club "Halloween on the Green" event. One of my neighbors on Mona Terrace invited me to stop by and I was glad to accept. The kids were having a blast with all sorts of games and fun the weekend before Halloween!
After that I went to the Sasquanaug pumpkin carving event at the Pequot Library. I was introduced to a few local residents and was able to get some great feedback about local matters. This event was followed by the Sasquanaug sponsored Halloween dog parade...Bob and Erica joined in..Bob even wore a costume t-shirt supporting me!
Door to door campaigning was the best way to wrap up this eventful weekend. I hit several streets and many neighbors were home. I also ran into someone who knew me as a child which is always fun. Door to door campaigning clearly makes a difference. People are always pleased to see I'm making an extra effort and to get a chance to meet one of their candidates.
