campaigning in Lawrenceburg

I was in Lawrenceburg on Monday (late morning and early afternoon) to campaign. I walked around the downtown area, going into businesses and meeting dozens of people. I also met the editor of the local paper-- something I had overlooked somehow in 2006.

My favorite conversation was with Dick Martin, who runs Trading Post on High Street. He was disenchanted with all levels of government-- local, state and federal. Of course, I could mostly be a sounding board for his complaints about local and state policy. But he was interested in government spending and debt, and gas prices, at the federal level.

I look forward to more of the same this summer!
