Oh and he doesn't believe in organized religion. So he would literally spend hours trying to convince the religious folks who dropped by why they were confused. They would realize that there was no convincing him, then pretty much say, "Well, we'd better move along now. Thanks for you're time." He'd still be willing to talk! So you see what I was up against growing up. I had to learn to make a logical argument!
Anyway, just a little while ago, I literally had a knock on my door. And it was Tackey Chan. He's running for State Representative and is introducing himself to people in Quincy.
Before opening the door, I asked who it was. He said his name. But I had never heard of him, so I waited a bit. Then a female volunteer announced that she was there too, so I opened the door.
I hate to be paranoid, but you really never know nowadays. Anyway, Tackey Chan was very nice, and seems to have a lot of good experience, so I took some of his campaign literature.
Local politics are really heating up in Quincy. There's a lot of movement lately. State Senator Michael Morrissey is leaving office to run for Norfolk County District Attorney. Plus, I just read that former Quincy Mayor, James Sheets, may run for Congress. Representative Bill Delahunt isn't seeking reelection, so the seat is up for the taking.
Things are going to get quite interesting leading up to the Fall. Especially since hundreds of Quincy teachers were just laid off.
