Nice pictures Reg. I hope they all did play nice.
Took my family. It was fine but you couldn't hear the politicians speaking. They need to work on the speakers. We had a good time. Nikki did give a good speech.
Great pictures and it was a fun event. Only one Independent candidate misbehaved badly,everyone else managed to remember their manners. Seems like there was more for the kids to do this year and they were having so much fun.I'd rather hear candidates talking about relevant issues rather than their childhood experiences.I vote for people based on their strengths as candidates and their stand on issues important to the majority of voters.
It seemed to me that it was too much of a picnic and not enough politics. They should call people to an area and THEN have the politicians speak. How Chism had it was that everybody was all over the place and the politicians just went up to a microphone and spoke. Another suggestion would be for them to have up front a donation box. This must have cost a lot of money so everybody should pitch in a little.
Milton, You really have a nice blog. The pictures are really good, but you need to take that bankrupt Del Gill's picture out. This guy is part of the Memphis Democrat Club MDC. All they do is take money from people and put out lying ballots.
Most of the items for the picnic are donated.The idea of calling everyone to one area to hear the speeches is a good one. I missed most of the speeches because there was no audible announcement to alert us.All in all, it was a good event and a wonderful public service. Thank you Sidney!
Thanks to everyone who complemented me on the pictures. In my next life I want to come back as a professional photographer.10:32 A.M. Both Cohen and Tinker spoke on their strengths. I doubt either would expect you to votebased on a single speech. Thank you for your comment.12:09 P.M. Good point it might be better to round everyone up to hear the candidates.12:27 P.M. I have spoken on how I disagreed with how MDC used their ballot. But I also said they are a new group and missteps can happen. I have never been a big fan of ballots but say what you want, in Memphis, they have an impact.Personally I feel the Shelby County Democratic Party should step in and set standards on how “democratic clubs” use and distribute ballots.Yes, Del is a character, but I have seen few people who work as hard as he does to push his views. You have to give him that.7:36 A.M. I agree it was very good. Sidney and his team deserve to be praised.
Del Gill is noting but a trouble maker. He knows no one wants him at the SCDP meetings but he comes and disrupts EVERY meeting. You are being too kind to him Milton. This guy is nothing but trouble.
I hate that I missed this event. I was looking forward to attending, however I was out on vacation.
