20160129_131415People of Des Moines are in a unique position. We have more access to political candidates and national media celebrities than anywhere else in the country. The First in the Nation position has an amazing impact on our hometown. And we’re making a good impression!  Some things I’ve heard and read.

Whatever your political view – we’re in Iowa. All eyes are on us. Show up Monday night at your caucus location. If you’ve never been, don’t worry. Each location is full of Iowa nice people to help you through the process. A few basics:

  • You must be registered as a Republican or Democrat to participate.
  • If you prefer being independent, don’t worry. You can switch back after Monday.
  • They all start at 7:00 PM
  • Teens and interested students welcome to observe and guaranteed to learn.

This is an opportunity and a responsibility. I know we are all sick of the ads, the phone calls, and the press. But Monday, they will vanish in the night. Let’s not let our country down. It is the most grass-root process you’ll ever experience. Let the Caucus Raucous Begin!
