4:35 p.m. Unions are notoriously good at turning people out, we have to be the same.

4:23 p.m. GOPAC notes that you should know the geography, the people and the voters and stressing knowing who the biggest employers of the county are.

4:15 p.m. GOPAC now giving a presentation

3:45 p.m. The WCRN setup is all ready, we are broadcasting from the lobby.

3:15 p.m. I speak up and mention the tea party not trusting republicans from the 9/12 rally last year

3:10 p.m. a questioner asks about supporting candidates that “can’t win” This is a self defeating prophesy and should not be used.

2:30 p.m. “Don’t back down or apologize that gives your opponents an opening.”

2:23 p.m. At the “activist candidate support breakout, speaker Chip Faulkner talking aobut keeping it simple: “Keep the nickel donut”

11:45 a.m. A video of a question on Unions:

11:39 a.m. During Q & A about running for low offices and going to high offices: “Invest in the office you are in so that the people will want to promote you to higher office.”

11:20 a.m. Next speaker: “Starting now if you are thinking of being elected you need to do one thing every day. Many times simply listening is enough let people know you are interested in what they say.” “That which unites us is greater than that which divides us.”

11:17 a.m Healey mentions he is a Yankee fan, that got a few moans (:c)

11:15 a.m. Chris Healey Conn GOP chairman on the economy: “We all know what the situation is. We all know people out of work.” “Do not let one democratic lie go unanswered.”

The running for office panel

11:10 a.m. The speakers make it a point that you have to get to know the people and knock on door after door, sounds like selling radio time.

The Crowd at the Running for office breakout session

11:00 a.m. Inside the running for office breakout session a great crowd in here.

10:50 a.m. Ran into Tom Wesley whose Radio show will be premiering tonight

Pulled in around 10:45 a.m. the parking lot is full.

Today we are doing the show live at the GOP Growing Grassroots 2011 conference in Milford Mass. I will be driving down this morning and updating during the day as time permits.

My latest for the Examiner talks a bit about local Massachusetts republicans re-arming:

the Gavel is passed to a new chairman

Although the working class group assembled last evening makes a mockery of that meme, the problem as Connaughton pointed out was proving that to the public. Her solution, more local involvement. She like the Twin City Tea Party Forum a week ago stressed Republicans need to get involved in politics on the local level bringing “the message of fiscal responsibility” that working class people both understand and support. It was by this method that “a farm team can be created” from which candidates known and trusted by the people could be drawn to win statewide.

The Fitchburg Republican Committee is one year old

Between this and my previous article on the Tea party forum the general consensus is that we have to start at the bottom in this state to change things.

It won’t be quick and it won’t be easy, but it won’t be boring.
