Ice Cream Social in the 45th LD

Dan Shumer of the 45th schmoozes with Gwen before the meeting.

Most popular photographing spot in the room...

...but it was less popular than this spot! The ice cream was a huge draw.

Special guest Kathy Stein, running for the KY Senate seat in the 13th, explains why a strong Democratic voice needs to replace Ernesto's. Two words: David Williams.

Todd Hollenbach, the 'vertically challenged', delivers his speech from stilts.

Reggie Thomas, LD chair of the 88th, compliments everyone who helped set up the meeting. He should know, since the 88th hosted its meet-and-greet the month before. Overall, it was a great meeting, with an enthusiastic crowd.
