Bob’s for Jobs Tour Finale

Day 5 of Tour is Almost Finished…

On January 5, 2010, in Bob's for Jobs Tour, by edwardpan

We started out the day at 5:30am! We drove all the way down to Pana to meet with Roland Carlson, who is a hospital administrator for the Pana Community Hospital. PCH has just added a multi-million dollar Fitness Center extension. The extension is expected to employ an extra 10 people for the hospital. The Schilling campaign took a 10 minute break to play some basketball with Roland at the fitness center. It turns out Roland is pretty darn good…

In Staunton we met up for an interview with the South County News editor Dave Ambrose. Dave ate lunch with us at the Bamboo House, an awesome restaurant. Dave followed Bobby while speaking with voters at a local restaurant. Bobby dropped in on a few local businesses in Staunton, and the reception was quite good.

We are now in Quincy for a Tea Party meeting. It should be fun…as it always is in Quincy.

Tomorrow we have an interview with the Quincy Whig and Doug Wilson, an interview with WTAD Radio Station and have several meetings set up with employers in Adams county. Then it is off to Aledo and then the Quad Cities to hold our Bob’s for Jobs Finale Press Conference, where Bobby will officially sign his “Contract with the 17th District”

Stay tuned for updates and pictures tomorrow.

I know, I know, I know. I said I would do this today. This time I did not forget the camera, but I forgot the cable! Ugh! I hate technology.

See you tomorrow.

Bobby Schilling has added another promise to his “Contract with the 17th District.”

Promise #6:

I will not vote in support of any bill that I have not read.

Bobby said that this was an important promise to make to the district because it is dangerous to vote on bills that haven’t been read. He said, “It is really shocking that congressmen actually vote on bills without having read them. To not read a bill, but yet vote in favor of it, is completely irresponsible and lazy. Many will say that it is unrealistic to expect a busy congressman to read a 2,000 page bill. If that’s the case, then maybe we shouldn’t have any more 2,000 page bills!”

Bobby is dedicated to serving his future district and plans on going to Washington with a “Servant’s Heart,” not a lobbyist’s wallet.
