An Afternoon With Political "Powerhouse" Donna Brazile

Tuesday afternoon Mayor Walling and I had the opportunity to hear a dynamic presentation from Political Strategist Donna Brazile. Ms. Brazile was the keynote speaker for The Foundation for Mott Community College Women in Education Fellowship Program.

I, like most people, had only heard Ms. Brazile speak on television. While I enjoy her television political commentary, I was really impressed by her live presentation. Ms. Brazile delivered a smart, inspiring, motivating speech.

She shared some personal stories about growing up as 1 of 9 children in Louisiana, and beginning her political career at the tender age of 9. She charged those who stood for change and voted for change to now fight for change. " The sidelines are full, we need people on the field," she said.
