My thoughts from the campaign trail.
Unrefined? Maybe. Honest? Always.

Knocking on Doors - Just Not for Myself Yet
In the past couple of weeks - I have hit the streets of Queens - going door to door petitioning, chatting with people about the issues important to them, and gathering support- not for myself, but for my friend and future Council mate, Elizabeth Crowley.
Elizabeth is running in the 30th District which covers central Queens, in a special election June 3rd to replace the recently-resigned Dennis Gallagher. It has been a great experience campaigning with and for her, and has energized me in my own campaign aspirations.
My name is Dave Kerpen. I'm running for office in 2009 in Queens, New York . I'm a young, energetic go-getter, with lots of experience in trying to change the world, but less experience running a political campaign. This blog contains the details of my quest to enter the political arena, and help my community in the process!
