I worked on my first political campaign in 1956. I helped stuff envelopes for the Adlai Stevenson campaign. Although my entire family were actively engaged Democrats, I was secretly an Ike supporter because as a 6 year old I rather favored the “I Like Ike” buttons. Obviously, a lot of other people agreed because Stevenson lost twice to Dwight Eisenhower.
Since that time, I’ve worked on a number of political campaigns. Although my preference is helping others get elected, I am an elected official myself as a member of the Ledyard Town Council. You might say that politics is in my blood. I realize that not everyone loves politics like I do. Some days I don't like politics either.
Attending the GOP convention has always been on “my bucket list” and this year I will finally have the opportunity to attend the Republican National Convention in Tampa during the week of August 26th. Rather than fill up my Simply Ledyard Blog with political chatter, I thought I’d create the Ledyard Politico where I expect to report on my experiences leading up to and during the convention.
