I took this week off from work to devote my energies fulltime to the campaign. I spent five days walking precincts (I think I visited two thousand homes), attended three forums, and responded to questionnaires in the time remaining. I’m exhausted–I don’t know how the other candidates did it (Piotr Gajewski seemed incredibly peppy at the King Farm Forum, but perhaps that’s because he was on home turf). I was elated that it rained this afternoon and I forced off the streets.
Tomorrow is the penultimate forum, this time with Rockville Central at the new Thomas Farm Community Center on the west side of 270 starting at 9:30 am. From the description of format, it should be a bit unusual (at one point, we’ll draw names from a hat and ask another candidate a question–should I be nice or naughty?). The eighth and last forum for this election season will be next Thursday, October 29 at the Rockville Senior Center. They’ve all been well attended so if you haven’t been to one, you have two more chances.
