These weekday daytime meetings, what kind of crowd does this draw in? What kind of demographic? Am I suppose to take time off from work to attend?

green-ee, maybe you had a bad

green-ee, maybe you had a bad experience with senator plowman, maybe not. your post is a cheap shot with no detail, including senator plowman's side of the story. from what you've written it's highly likely the senator is unaware you tried reaching her. i have known her as a friend and legislator for 15-years. she is the antithesis of apathetic: a tough fighter with a big heart (perhaps too big) with a reputation for going the extra mile for her constituents. i would ask you to give senator plowman the courtesy of verifying your suspicions before posting such negative comments.

bob s, really? any campaign kickoff event is primarily a media event. candidate supporters who can attend will attend. but the idea is to host events which are easy for media reporters to cover.

I saw Sen. Plowman's kickoff

I saw Sen. Plowman's kickoff in Hampden. Sen. Doug Thomas introduced her. There was a good crowd of well-wishers not visible in this pic. The one gentleman to Deb Plowman's right came in during her remarks.

I am decided and don't know

I am decided and don't know much about Senator Plowman. I am very interested in hearing what she has to say at the convention.

That previous post should

That previous post should have read undecided. After asking some of her supporters at the convention why I should vote for her and then hearing and meeting her I made up my mind. I turned in my absentee ballot today with a check before her name. Some of the comeents I heard was that "she is fiesty and is willing and able to stand for what she believes. I heard she has a record of voting socially and fiscally conservative and that she is anxious and prepared to take on Angus after working in the legislature while he was in office. One man said she has the scoop on Angus and is ready to dish it out ."

It wasn't easy making a decision as I like several other canidates as well. I could only vote for 1 and Debra Plowman is the one.
