Last Friday, November 4, I visited Keene State College in southern New Hampshire for a “Get Out the Vote” event where I heard Chelsea Clinton speak passionately in support of her mother, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to an audience consisting of both college students and older adults. Ms. Clinton emphasized that the stakes are very high in the Presidential election on Tuesday of this week. She stressed that all of the following issues are “on the ballot” in this election: science, college and graduate school affordability, a woman’s right to make her own decisions, protecting marriage equality, raising the minimum wage, equal pay for equal work (with an emphasis on both women and Americans with disabilities), criminal justice reform, gun violence prevention, the heroin and opioid overdose epidemic, and the suicide epidemic.
The photos here and on my facebook site ( http://tinyurl.com/hbzqd6x ) give a good portrait of Chelsea Clinton. To hear a portion of her speech, please click on the following link to a video I published for “This Week With Mitch Grosky,” my political and social commentary blog:
I am honored that my blog and accompanying videos have been viewed by over one hundred thousand people from across the United States and from such foreign countries as France, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Italy, Egypt, Singapore, Norway, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Romania, and Guatemala
In addition, the video features six interviews I conducted with Hillary Clinton supporters in attendance at the event. They were asked three questions: 1. Why do you support Hillary Clinton for President? 2. Why do you think that it is essential for our country to elect Hillary Clinton as its President? 3. Did you ever consider voting for Donald Trump? Why or why not?
This election may be the most important one in our lifetimes. Please, vote–and vote for the person who will bring character, compassion, intelligence, wisdom, and experience to the office of President of the United States.
