A Dele...What?

Last Wednesday, March 23rd, at 7 p.m. I attended the Republican Caucus Night. I went to show that I can be political. To prove that I have a voice. To declare that I care who speaks for me and my opinions at a political level. To stand up and say, "I'm proud to be an American!"

Honestly, I wanted to see what a Caucus really is. I wanted to feel things out and see how, in the future, I can be more involved politically. Well, when all was said and done, I walked out of the meeting a nominated and elected State Delegate!

The guy I replaced didn't seem all that happy. I guess that's why we have elections, right? Let the people choose, let them vote and let the one with the most votes represent the people. He still shook my hand and wished me luck. Not sure how sincere he was...

I feel a bit humbled and mystified. I feel encouraged (and honestly...a bit forced) to do a lot of research and figure out who are the best candidates. I FEEL SO POLITICAL!

I do have an opinion, I'm just not one to share my political opinions openly...for the most part.
But, now, I'm representing my precinct and I'm going to make them proud!

I love America! I love that we all have the right to vote...however we may choose!

Congrats, and good luck with all your political stuff! The guy you replaced was just upset because everyone wanted someone who would standup for them not just let things slide by. He obviously didn't do a good job!

Congrats State Delegate Brigitte! Can't wait to hear all about your experience through this whole process.

Fun for you! :) Glad it isn't me, but super grateful for our country despite the hits we have taken in the last while.
