Vote 2006...Don't Believe the hype
We hope you have been enjoying our new expanded Podcasts! You will always find a savvy mix of music, commentary, information and links for the GLBT community and beyond. We encourage sharing our pods with your friends. If you have news, opinions, or commentary, we would love to hear from you. E-mail us at Nealix101@comcast.net
The Mid-term elections are only weeks away and we would like to share our endorsement for your consideration. After reviewing campaign material and researching voting records we have decided that the following candidates would be accessible to the GLBT community at large. Even though these candidates get a vote of confidence from us, we feel that cultivating relationships with office holders is paramount for the community. For too long we have not utilized this approach. Our elected officals must hear from us in mass to affect change or demonstrate our concern about issues. If you don't know who represents your area, don't hesitate...Educate your self today!
