On the Trail with Ty: 10/13/18

1. I want to credit John Corrigan with steady, reliable help with the door to door knocking and handing out of palm cards. John helps me on rainy or threatening days. He is very comfortable knocking on doors and delivering a message of support for me.
I would not be where I am without a dedicated group of volunteers. Jax handles all my social media and special events. Bill is superb at his treasurer’s duties, advice, and puts up signs in tricky spots. Jan organizes the weekly sign holding. And lots of you come to the sign holding on Saturday mornings from 10 am to noon.
I can’t tell you how grateful I am for your warm support. I have made so many new, good friends over the past year during my two campaigns (state rep and city council). It’s been quite a beautiful ride with you. I could not have done this without you.
2. We had a terrific time at the softball game last Sunday. I used muscles that haven’t been touched in many years. The first grounder saw me take a flying tumble, rolling over in the dirt, groping for a ball that I never touched. My white shorts had turned to brown in the process. John smashed two homers. Jax threw several innings of stellar relief. Bill got smacked in a variety of spots by foul balls off his chest and other important bodily parts. We had hot dogs and hamburgs (or turkey burgers) to our heart’s delight. We heard a constant roar of the lion coming from the Capron Park Zoo.
This was pure fun and the campaign/door knocking/sign holding has all been fun. Win or lose, friendships are the best part of our campaign.
To all those who put up signs, give me personal and financial support, knock on doors, wave at passing cars, post my photos and words on social media, and keep me company on this campaign trail.
THANK YOU! I’M HAVING A BLAST!

All the Best,
