I am Randy. I live in Lafayette, Indiana and was asked to contribute a bit to the blog by Bil. I am a local high school teacher and the President of Citizens for Civil Rights, the local civil rights group in Lafayette.
I am tired and exhilirated from being at a retreat all weekend. It was fantastic to be able to network and learn from the leaders from across the state as we plan our strategy to defeat the bigots of Indiana.
Just a couple of notes about my and my style. I tend to be a romantic who truly believes that the American experiment in democracy and justice is real, albeit flawed and in need of repair. I am basically optimistic and think people need to get off their butts and do some work.
I look forward to contributing now and then to the message.
