Hello Friends,

The campaign is picking up speed!

This afternoon there was a great Candidates Day at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT.  It was organized by Dr. Gary Rose, the Chairman of the Department of Government and Politics, also a noted author.  This morning prior to the event, I wrote up and reproduced the Campaign Platform (see above) for distribution at the event.  Also over the weekend, I had business cards made up for the campaign.  Major candidates for state and national offices of both parties were invited.  Other Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate who attended were Linda McMahon, Peter Schiff and Vincent Forras.  I met and spoke with each of them.  There were various Democrat party candidates for the U.S. Senate.  Curiously absent was Richard Blumenthal.  He had several campaign staff members there with a table.  I introduced myself.  Connecticut Republican Party Chairman Christopher Healey was also there.  I introduced myself.  He was cordial and mentioned that he's receiving my campaign updates.  When I asked him if he reads them, he said, "Yes, they're easy to read!"

I engaged in much discussion with other candidates of both parties and many students.  While I was speaking with a Republican candidate for governor on Roe v. Wade, two students came up with a microphone and video and they recorded my position on the issue (See Position Statement at  campaign website.).  All the students were quite cordial and showed good interest in this campaign particularly with respect to the fact that I am a descendent of 17th Century settlers of the Colony of Connecticut, that I served in the U.S. Peace Corps in Bucaramanga, Colombia, and that I describe myself as a whistleblower of state public works.  In addition, there was good student interest in my analysis of Roe v. Wade.  I even saw and spoke with Ken Dixon, the Connecticut Post reporter who did the 1987 article "Tilting at Power" which appears on the website.

The student group also did video interviews of each candidate.  For mine, I spoke about five minutes about key campaign points.  The interview will be posted at the Sacred Heart University website. 

The event today also opened up opportunity to participate in a Senate Candidates Forum this evening at Nonnewaug High School in Woodbury, CT.  It is to begin at 7:00 p.m.  In addition, there apparently is another event scheduled for tomorrow morning at a college in Willimantic, CT.  I'm awaiting details.

On Friday, I do a live radio interview on WDJZ 1530 AM radio in Bridgeport, CT.

Clearly, this political endeavor is picking up steam.

Yet another very important development is that this morning I spoke again with an official of the Federal Elections Commission.  This campaign can be officially registered NOW.  It would be required to be registered at the point that there are $5,000 in campaign contributions and quarterly financial reports are not required until there are $5,000 in contributions.  However, it can formally and officially be registered with the Federal Elections Commission NOW!

The issues are right and the time is right.  God is good!
