Campaign Tour Day 1

Greetings from the road! We are settled into our hotel in Florence, AL (we HIGHLY recommend the Residence Inn here) and are really looking forward to a good night's rest. Whew, today has been a whirlwind but it has been such a successful day. We have been to restaurants, bait and tackle shops, Democratic headquarters, Republican headquarters, local newspapers, and even a radio station on our trek northward- 14 stops total! Stockton Landmark District fliers and signs are now sprinkled through western Alabama. We spoke to almost 100 folks along the way today and hope that they will tell their communities about the Stockton Landmark District and Amendment #3. Thanks so much to all of them for the warm welcome and for giving us a few minutes out of their day. I had planned to post photos but my iPad is not cooperating. I will post a few on the Facebook page and try to get them on the blog soon. I've listed today's stops along with links to their websites or other information. We will be traveling across the top of the state tomorrow and begin heading south, ending up in Auburn tomorrow evening. Look out for another post then and also watch the Facebook page for updates from the road. Sweet dreams!
