Obsessed by politics? Infuriated by politics? Want to stop thinking about politics?
Well, get over it. It’s front and center. It’s every day. It’s maddening, and it makes your head and heart hurt.
In fact, we’re less than a month before a so-called “special” legislative session that promises to . . .
Sorry. I had to step away from that sentence for a second. The special session promises to . . .
Sorry. I gagged a little. It promises to . . .
Oh, forget it. Let’s just move on.
Speaking of moving on, 2018 is an election year. (Like you needed to be told.) I’ve been proud to be your State Senator and your advocate for common sense, equality, open government and honest budgets that support our kids, education and health care. I enjoy the positive vision that we’ve embraced together that’s led to significant progress we can be proud of.
And I love the enthusiastic support I receive from you. Thanks for that. We’re in this together. I’m not finished standing with you. I’m running for reelection, and I ask for your help as we work together for the future of our state, region and city.
In my effort to bring cheer to those I love, I’m sending you this Save the Date for my Annual Concert Under the Stars.
See? We can find something about politics that’s fun and exciting. Yes, we can!
Mark your calendars: October 5, 2017. 8:00 PM. Zilker Park.
I’ve been doing this gig since 2006. We load the park with people, food, drink, great music and dancing. Those that have been there before always want to come back. Those of you that haven’t been before, well, I’ve asked.
And this year, like all the others, we’ll have some fun. Mark those calendars. We’ll be announcing who will be playing a little later.
But, it will be good. So, click here to reserve tickets.
And as the days go by, as you feel the need to scream, as you reach for that bottle, remember we’ve got October 5th on the way.
