Public Speaking

I am getting ready to have some opportunities to speak in front of crowds. After a lifetime of listening to sermons, speeches, lectures etc and doing some public speaking myself I have come up with a few rules for my public speaking adventures.

Zollie's 4 rules for Zollie's public speaking adventures.
1.Keep it Short
2.Keep it Simple
3.Keep it Positive
4.Keep it Short

I believe this blog along with my web site allows voters to read in detail what my views are, even to ask questions and offer suggestions. In talking to people in small groups and individually more details and specifics can be communicated. I have found that when speaking before a large crowd less is more.

Presidential Race

Seems like the race for the Democratic Nominee got a lot closer yesterday. I think that means they will still be campaigning in North Carolina before our May 6th primary. I am glad that we will get to be involved in the presidential primary race. I believe both candidates will be in our state and area much more than if the race was already decided.
