Clarkstown Councilwoman Stephanie Hausner has a delegate’s view of the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC.
There’s no enthusiasm gap here!
Monday was Day 1 of the Democratic National Convention and what an exciting day it was! We started the morning with our NY delegation breakfast and heard from Senator Chuck Schumer, Speaker Shelly Silver and Lt. gov Duffy. Normally I’m not into 8a breakfasts, but let me tell you this was worth it. Each morning all 600 or so members of the delegation gather to hear from our state leaders. Every day has a theme related to our core democratic values: Monday was labor, Tuesday was healthcare, and this morning was LGBT equality. We also have received wake up calls each morning; Monday was from President Obama and this morning was from NY Giants Defensive End Justin Tuck.
