Counting Down!

 100 Days To Go! **

In that you have all been so supportive of my run for the House of Delegates, I thought I’d give you a look inside the campaign.  The best part?  The staff, organizers, interns, and volunteers!  Their enthusiasm keeps me energized!

They knock doors!

Then there are the folks I get to meet along the way,

the friends who volunteer to canvass for me,

and meeting the Lieutenant Governor was pretty great, too!

And of course, you already know about the beauty of the 12th District.

All in all, the positives far outweigh the challenges!  Thanks for your words of encouragement and support!

**  You probably know that I am a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner, and when providing care for pregnant women, we calculate their gestational age based on their last menses, which gives us their EDC (their “due date”).  At the beginning of this campaign, I decided to consider Election Day, November 3rd, my due date!  Based on that, I am 26 weeks into my campaign gestation! Hee hee! Gotta have a little humor, right? **

    • I’m having so much fun with everyone’s comments … glow, third trimester, delivery.
      Such clever and fun blogger friends I have 🙂

  1. What happy looking people you have supporting you Laurie – seeing these pics makes me happy all the way over here! You are holding up under all these different activities extremely well – pregnancy, new job, photographing and blogging – and keeping all the balls in the air successfully! Wowser – LB for president!!

  2. You know people believe in you when they show up to volunteer their time. I’m so impressed by your organization LB. Albeit with the help of many, every team needs a strong leader. High-five for your enthusiasm, community spirit and hard work. I can’t wait to have the opportunity to watch you make a difference in the House of Delegates!. xo Just keep swimming!

    • Big, BIG credit goes to the team. My campaign manager Nichole is the epitome of organization!! And Andrew (my Field Director, not my son Andrew) is as well. So glad they believed in my potential and jumped on board Laurie Buchwald for Delegate!
      Thanks for your belief in me!! XOXO

  3. What a delight to see all these people supporting you for delegate. Friends and volunteers and even the Lt. Governor are in your corner. I’m glad you’re in the home stretch so to speak, though I know a lot of work lies ahead. I wish I was in your state to help canvas. I’m so incredible proud to say I know you. xox

  4. They look like a great group to have on your team. PLUS, they are all young and I love surrounding myself with youthful energy, so I hope it’s energizing you as well. You even have community members pitching in, and gathering with you – it must be an amazing ride, Laurie.

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
