Boston Convention Update + Volunteer Info

I'll try to write posts periodically about the Democratic Convention planning for Boston 2004. I have submitted my volunteer form electronically and I received a response yesterday saying they are still processing security clearances. This is the first national convention after 9/11, blah, blah...

If you feel like signing up to volunteer for the convention, go to boston04.com or email volunteerinfo@boston04.com. Their phone number is (617) 247-2004 x501. This is a great way to get involved and help propel the Democrats to victory in 2004, especially if you're like me and still undecided on whom to support (basically between Clark and Dean, though I'll support whoever gets the nomination).

Apparently there was a volunteer meeting on October 21 that 130 people attended. I didn't go. There's going to be another one in November some time.

Meanwhile, there seems to be a bit of wrangling over convention planning between the city and the DNC. Or at least that's what the Globe says, but they've been known to make up tension between politicians where none really exists. As long as they can agree to keep the bars open late during convention week, it's all good in my book.
