Minnesota State Fair Part 3 = Who and What I Saw plus What I Ate

The mocha on a stick was especially delicious for my first time tasting it. Always want to try one new food at the Minnesota State Fair.  There was my representative, Keith Ellison speaking to the people about the ongoing nurses strike and supporting the unions. People filled the chairs as he began to speak. Afterward Representative Ellison was passing out invitations to the Saturday Barbecue for the upcoming weekend. As he came towards me with an invitation, I was proud to shake his hand and tell him, “I am one of your constituents. I have been on your group calls. I really appreciate what you do.” Keith Ellison is worthy of respect for his thoughtful approach in reaching out to everyone in his district to improve peoples’ lives.

He was so kind and genuinely humble, when in response, he asked me if he could give me a hug. I said, “Of course.” It was a such a nice moment.

Saturday I went to the  AFL-CIO Barbecue with a friend in tow. Senators Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota, spoke to the crowd about the importance of the upcoming local elections as well as the presidential elections.

Don’t forget to vote, please?  Women’s right to vote in the USA was ratified on May 19, 1919. It was a hard won right that is not quite 100 years old. In perspective of all democracies’ historical time arc, that’s an eye-blink!

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.

Have a brilliant day wherever you are.
