A meeting with the Mayor...

Wow, what a day. Just when things look bad, suddenly there's the silver lining, today was one of those days here at Camp Second Helpin'. We have been waiting for our own power source since day one, and after general comments made by the owner, we began to worry all over again. So after talking it was decided that a few of us should go to the Mayor's office and try to see him and find out for ourselves. On the way there Tarl asks if we have an appointment, or had we made any call? After being told no, he doubted that we would get very far, and I told him "We don't need an appointment,all we have faith and that's all we needed." For I truly believe that if your on the right path in life, then the things that need to happen, will. That's what happened today. We all figured on camping for a few hours in a waiting room, but that's not how it went. We go in and walk up to the receptionists desk just as Tommy Lango steps out of his office and hears our request to speak to him, and accepts personally.We went in and explained to him what we have come back to do with our community center, and our difficulty in getting power, and we also told him that we wanted to make sure that we really were wanted here.The first thing he did was assure us that we are very much wanted, and needed here. He also told us he would personally make a call about our power today. We also spoke to him of our wishes to actually find a building to clean and refurbish for a permanent community center, and he made mention of a building that would be perfect for the project, for now I won't say which building, until he has talked to which ever committees that would have to approve, but needless to say, we left feeling extremely positive. I have to say that Tom Lango is a very down to earth, realistic easy to talk to person, it was refreshing to meet a politician that actually had a real picture of what's important to meet the needs of the people that he's been elected to serve.
