Last night, Bob Olson attended the American Legion annual Turkey Dinner in Cokato and a meet-up at a private home.
Activists and Democrats alike asked Bob questions and provided feedback to Bob on the issues that are most important to those of us out in Greater Minnesota.
We had a lengthy discussion about:
The war in Iraq
Veterans health care benefits
Fair farming practices
No Child Left Behind
Special Education funding
The partisan nature of modern politics
Sustainable and renewable energy sources
and many other issues
Bob spent an hour and a half engaging people on the issues that are most important to them. While Bob was well versed on all of these issues, perhaps the most glowing endorsement of Bob was when one of the attendees called him "absolutely genuine".
I could not have said it better myself.
