I am in Bogota, Colombia with my girlfriend, Dr. Clara Lora, who is a native of this country. We are here visiting her mom and family. I'm brushing up on my spanish and getting ready for the BIG campaign kickoff on April 2, 2005 at 7 pm at 218 west springfield street, boston.
Hopefully, I'll be back in one piece, the snow will be melted and the Red Sox will be primed for another great season.

I went to a St. Patrick's Day event today with my Mom, Joanne Fitzgerald McCrea, and campaign treasurer Dr. Clara Lora. We ran into the Mayor and gave him the Kevin McCrea for City Council Business Card! He told me to "keep working hard", with a confused look on his face that said "who the heck is this guy I've never heard of running for City Council!" Apparently he doesn't remember when I asked him for 10 minutes of his time to talk about how we can build more affordable housing and he told me that he was already doing enough .....but of course he does meet hundreds of people.
