CCO,

Yes - and largely thanks to you for cluing me in to their website, as I followed the trail, contacted the UCDW President - and made what I believe to be a very positive connection! I have also hooked up with Hudson Valley for Obama and some other organizations - and sent press releases just about everywhere I can think of... Now I'm just hoping we don't get a blizzard or severe ice storm (though the "show will go on" --- as long as the Muddy Cup is open!) that night!

Please do come if you can - and bring some family members or friends!

I would love to have you (or someone else, if you prefer) say a few words on behalf of UCDW.

Thanks Much,

N.S.
