SKF at the Belfast Tea Party Rally, 6/2/12
The Belfast Tea Party in the American Legion Hall, 143 Church Street yesterday was done very well. At least 150 people attended (by my count), all six GOP candidates for U.S. Senate were there, the two GOP candidates for the 2nd District Congressional race were also represented.
Each candidate had a table with campaign info and paraphernalia and someone to answer questions. Two musicians - I think they called themselves Rural Route 3 - provided acoustic music interludes. I had just written my name, address, and email address on the Belfast Tea Party sign-in sheet when I heard the sweet sounds of Greensleeves played on a musical saw!
I just wanted to say thank you to the Belfast Tea Party, to John Ford who moderated the event, and to all the candidates attending for a thoroughly informative, enjoyable Saturday afternoon.
The U.S. Senate candidates sat in a semi-circle at the head of the event room. Under the blue D'Amboise campaign sign, (L-R) starting under the "2" in "2012" is Bill Schneider, Bruce Poliquin, Deb Plowman (standing with mic), Rick Bennett (blocked from view by Plowman), to Plowman's left, seated, Scott D'Amboise (white shirt), Charlie Summers.
