Mourdock to visit Brazil

Monday, September 21, 2009

State Treasurer Richard Mourdock will lead the "Rally in the Rotunda," at the Clay County Courthouse at 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 28.

The event is open to anyone who is interested.

Tickets will be available at the east and west entrances of the courthouse and cost $10 per person. Hors' deurves will also be served at the event, which is sponsored by the Clay County Republican Club.

Mourdock was at the center of a recent national debate on the automobile industry bailout as he pursued a case on behalf of Indiana pensioners and taxpayers.

Mourdock was elected as the 53rd State Treasurer in November 2006. He brought to the office a 30-year record as a business executive in the Hoosier energy, construction, and environmental industries.

Mourdock also serves as Indiana's Chief Investment Officer, where he seeks to maximize the return on the state's investment portfolio, and serves on a total of 13 boards and commissions in his official position.

Before serving as State Treasurer, Mourdock served two terms as a County Commissioner in Vanderburgh County, where he gained a reputation as a results-oriented leader by setting goals and measuring progress.

BUNK! I will be there and he is best to be prepared for hard questions. It's not just Senators and Congressmen who must be shaken, it's the smallest to the largest. Let's give this joker his 10 dollars. Seems to me if he REALLY wanted a public meeting, he wouldn't need to charge. The Republican and /or Democratic party would be best served to drop their need for monetary gain and be best interested in the needs of and for the people.

He was not the one who "REALLY" wanted a public meeting, he did not come calling to that group. In case you are not familiar with the respective party groups, the candidates/elected officials do not come calling or begging for an open public meeting. They are invited to come speak at one. If they accept, fine, if they decline then the groups move on to the next person they would like to come speak. Blah, blah, blah, so on and so forth. Now you know, for what it's worth.

He does not get the $10 for his campaign fund or whatever fund he needs money for. I do believe this is a sponsored event by one of our party groups in an effort to raise money for the upcoming primaries. I am quite sure that both parties do this. Their monies in turn go to help support the respective candidates in their quest for an election night victory. There you go.

It would behoove you to REALLY read the article before you go espousing your BUNK and maybe attend either or both of our party's meetings. The dates and times are published in our paper every month. It astonishes me that you actually have your own "blog" yet you know nothing about how this works. Interesting............

Please don't think I am being icky...I wish more people would become involved in what's going on in our city, county and state, not to mention our country too. If we want our voices heard then we need to speak up and tell our elected officials how we feel. Then if they do not act by doing what's best for the majority heard then elect somebody else who might do a better job.

Have a great day.

I have heard Richard Mourdock speak several times, and he is an excellent speaker. He rode with us on our bus to Washington, D.C. on September 11. My husband and I plan to come on Monday evening just to hear him speak again.
