Members of Congress Visit HC

It’s that time of year again- Election Season!

Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, engaged or apathetic, there’s no escaping the excitement that leads up to November 4th.

I grew up in a very political environment and spent my youth attending campaign events with my family. Now, having moved from one Commonwealth to another, I’m in the process of learning all about the great state of Massachusetts.

This week, through my involvement with the College Democrats, I helped out with a special get-out-the-vote event on campus. Congressmen Joe Kennedy, grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, and Jim McGovern, a well-known human rights activist, visited Dinand Library to give an inspiring message to Holy Cross voters.

From experience, I know how stressful setting up for a political event can be. I offered my help hanging signs, moving chairs, and putting out coffee. The entire event was a great success!

Political activity resumes Saturday; I’ll be cavassing in Worcester with Massachusetts State Rep. Dan Donahue, a 2009 graduate of Holy Cross. Until then, it’s time to celebrate my favorite holiday.

Have a wonderful Halloween!
