Working Families Party Convention starts

And we're off!

Welcome to the Working Families Party State Convention, it's a packed house and people are pretty excited. We had some trouble with internet access, but we're online now.

Here's a quick rundown to catch you up:
12:51 everyone stood and said the Pledge of Allegiance
12:52 Sam Williams is welcoming everyone to the convention
12:55 Bob Master is reporting on the state of the party, here are a few of his words:
  • we've built a potent political machine
  • let's talk about what we did - what you did - in 2005: passed living wage bills and stopped George Bush and Tom DeLay from privatizing Social Security
  • this year New York will be the battleground for taking back our country
  • 15 seats will shift control of the House - 5 or 6 are right here in New York
Big cheers for taking back the House - people are excited about the coming election.
