From the Floor: Environmentalism and Sheryl Crow
Chrisi West is a Virginia delegate to the Democratic National Convention who will be blogging for Virginia Politics from Denver. She is from Alexandria, in Fairfax County.
It was a late night at Red Rocks last night, where music and environmentalism met with Sheryl Crow, Sugarland, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, along with speakers like Robert Kennedy Jr., our own Gov.Tim Kaine, and William McDonough, author of "Cradle to Cradle."
So after an evening enjoying Colorado's natural beauty (and some good music), the first 8:30 a.m. breakfast delegation meeting this morning was necessary, but early. Governor Mark Warner addressed the delegates at breakfast, and got everyone excited for a day of events. Apparently Virginia has prime seating for the events in the Pepsi Center, right behind Illinois!
Planning out my day of events is turning out to be more complicated than I first thought it would be. The Virginia events are, of course, listed separately from the meetings and events hosted by the National Committee and the various caucuses. At noon I plan to go to an event in the Unconventional Women series, where Sens. Barbara Boxer, Claire McCaskill and others will speak to attendees about making change while in office. After that it's back to the Pepsi Center to hear a host of speakers, including Michelle Obama, who I've never actually seen before!
But now I'm headed out to see Donna Brazile speak about elections, race and politics!
