I know those people want to be home with their families in the evenings and weekends too, but it would mean more to people that have to work if they could actually attend some of these functions as well. I would love to attend but can't see my way clear to take the time off. At least I have a good job in these tough economic times which is better than a lot of poor souls out there can say.



I can agree with you I have taken a vacation day to hold the TEA PARTY and im goning to take a half day off tomorrow because this is very immportant matters . I have sent numerous emails and phone calls to this politition in general and have not had a single response back from this man not even a mass email that at least he looked at it. so yes im attending both cant afford to take time off but i cant afford not too!!!!!!!!

Could you ask him where he stands on this issue? "Obama Administration Signals Amnesty Push This Year"

I would like to know how he is going to vote on this issue and also the Dream Act that was recently reintroduced into the Legislature.
