Well...I guess no one has much to say about Mitch.......
The general idea here is to get folks sharing thoughts, ideas, and concerns online.
The nickname feature of Blogger allows you to remain anonymous to other viewers. Additionally, when you complete your profile you can use a nickname in place of you first or last name.
Again, this allows your identity to not been known as you publish to this blog.
Fun event last night at the Rathskeller.
For questions regarding this blog, e-mail:
Has anyone heard anything about a "running mate" for this campaign. It seems that in light of the current crisis in the State, the continued loss of jobs and the inability to not only attract new business to Indiana but step up to keep those businesses we have healthy, that sooner is better than later regarding the "team" that will be faced with tremendous challenges.
Clearly, Mitch Daniels is a great choice for Governor. He is someone who can see the big picture and take a pro-active and participatory role in turning the budget around. But the second member of this team will also face tremendous challenges regarding the overall administration related issues of running the state.
Making this decision quickly can only help this campaign.
I had the opportunity to attend the Indianapolis "meet-up" last night at the Rathskeller. This informal gathering was a great example of how Hoosiers are and will continue to come together in support of the needed change in leadership (and I use that term with great reluctance as it relates to the current administration) here in Indiana.
Mitch attended this function and stayed around late in order to have a chance to meet each person, answer questions and provide some insight into his platform of change.
If you are not on the e-mail list for meet-ups, be sure to go to www.danielsforgovernor.meetup.com
and sign up.
And be sure to let other concerned Hoosiers know about these meet-ups
Many of you who are receiving invitations to "blog" are not clear about what this is or why this blog has been published. Additionally, there may be some who are just not familiar with this type of internet forum.

So...here is some basic info that should help.....keep in mind that you do not need to a computer geek to post....it is as simple as typing a e-mail...and this site has a easy to use help section. YOU REALLY CAN'T SCREW UP!
HAVE FUN BLOGGING
A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is "blogging" and someone who keeps a blog is a "blogger." Blogs are typically updated daily using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain the blog. Postings on a blog are almost always arranged in chronological order with the most recent additions featured most prominently. A blog is often a mixture of what is happening in a person's life and what is happening on the Web, a kind of hybrid diary/guide site, although there are as many unique types of blogs as there are people.
People maintained blogs long before the term was coined, but the trend gained momentum with the introduction of automated published systems, most notably Blogger at blogger.com. Thousands of people use services such as Blogger to simplify and accelerate the publishing process.
Blogs are alternatively called web logs or weblogs. However, "blog" seems less likely to cause confusion, as "web log" can also mean a server's log files.
I hope this helps.
It's nice to see that someone has taken the time to get the ball rolling. Now we can ask the really tough questions and put the issues out for EVERYONE to see.
Come one....come all!
So what do you really think about those green t-shirts...are they cool or what????
Quite simply put....it is time for some big changes in the Hoosier State
. This weblog is just one person's way of helping Mitch achieve his goal of becoming the next Governor of Indiana. You can go to his campaign website www.mymanmitch.com
to get all the basics about him...his education, his long and proven track record as both a public servant and as a business leader as well as up to date specifics related to this important political campaign.
But it will be in public forums such as this that you will witness the results of his day to day interaction with Hoosiers as he travels around the State, visiting...chatting and spending one-on-one time with fellow Hoosiers...connecting with these folks on "their turf".
Personal comments on issues, policies and day to day observations related to this campaign will be the primary focus of content that is posted in this forum.
I encourage each and every one of you to take part....be active and participate. Feel free to post your questions and concerns. I assure each of you.... we can make a difference in this campaign and in the future of Indiana
