Major Updates

So everybody I have some great news. Representative Kanjorski’s office just contacted us and confirmed that we have tickets for the Swearing-in Ceremony of President Elect Obama! This news is what I have been waiting for since we first started discussing this trip, and now that it has happened I am beyond relieved. Packaged along with the tickets was an invitation to a reception with Mr. Kanjorski which I am looking forward to immensely. Also we have received tickets to the Celebration of Many Nations one People Ball, which I am looking forward to attending. Here is the description from their website, "A Celebration of Many Nations - One People" The 2009 American Indian Inaugural Ball brings together Native leaders, organizations, artists, musicians, and professionals from across the country.

I am glad to see so many things coming together in the final week before the event, and I am really looking forward to all the goings on. As usual, if you have any questions or comments feel free to post a comment on the blog, or email me at David.cook@wilkes.edu. I look forward to hearing from you.Oh, and if you missed it here is the link to my WBRE interview. So much has been happening

I almost forgot to mention that on the morning of the 20th you can listen for my call in live from D.C on the WBRE’s Morning Show, and for all of you out on your way to work, you can listen to me on Magic 93 with Frankie in the Morning as I will be placing some phone calls with him as well.

  2. Hello David. My name is Robyn. I would just like to say that I find it completely incredible that you will get a chance to experience this moment in history. After reading your blog and watching the WBRE interview it is obvious that you have a passion for politics and are thrilled to be a part of this. It is inspiring to me to see someone at your age who has such high aspirations for the future and is taking action to get those goals accomplished. Enjoy yourself at these momentous occasions and please continue to write about your involvement. I am interested in knowing more about the happenings of the events you will attend, especially the Inaugural Ball. Thanks, Robyn

  3. First off, congratulations! My name is Theron, and I was wondering what your opinion is on the future of the nation at this historic time, due to the fact that the House, Senate, and Presidency are all controlled by the Democratic Party. Do you think that this single party dominance will lead the nation out of dark economic times, similar to the era of FDR's New Deal? Or do you think that the Democratic stranglehold will lead to sloppy political decision-making due to the lack of an effective "checks and balances" system? Thanks, Theron

  4. Hey David. My name is Tricia. I find it very amazing that you have such a great oportunity at such a young age. You have a great interest in politics and the current state of the country. Do you think that the Democrats will make the right decisions to turn the country around in a reasonable amount of time before losing the faith of the nation? Thanks, Tricia
