I spoke with Raymond, on the telephone, Thursday morning. We hadn’t spoken in quite awhile. It was good to chat. Ray is busy with the upcoming Primary on September 9. We, of course, want him to win that and the General Election in November. The second hurdle should not be an issue.

Ray realizes that he doesn’t have much Web presence, but also, correctly, points out that the constituents that he is going after are not folks that typically get influenced by what they read or find on the Internet. He is right on that. But, I have offered to help Ray with any Web visibility he would like to achieve.

I keep on seeing his signs on Route 28 and drive by the LARGE handwritten one he has on Stockbridge Corner, on Route 28 — close to where he hangs out.

On Friday afternoon, given that I had my new camera with me, I stopped, twice, on Route 28 on the way back from Wolfeboro, N.H., from the “North Shore Acappella” set up, for “Great Waters”, to take the above pictures. Plus I wanted to try out the camera. These two pictures have been drastically reduced in size, using Picasa. The originals, at 3.63MB and 3456×2304 pixels, are rather big.

Well, my chat with Ray confirmed what I already knew. Ray is a good guy — and that means something. You can trust him. He will be good for us in Alton. We definitely look forward to having Ray in Concord.

Vote for Ray.
