Aldon Hynes and the Declaration of Independence

For those that don’t know, that cutie on stage with Governor Dean from Saturday was Aldon Hynes’ daughter Fiona. Aldon’s wife wrote a terrific recap of what being on stage meant to her.

Aldon’s commitment to the campaign and his ability to get others involved is an inspiration. Do yourself a favor and read his account of what last week meant for his family. There was loss, a family reunion of sorts, car troubles, a letter to the editor to The New York Times, a surprise from the Burlington campaign staff, and oh yeah — an appearance on national TV to talk about what the Dean campaign means to him. Read the whole thing.

Aldon — I hope we’ll have a chance to share a beer at the convention in July. You’re doing a phenomenal job. The campaign’s lucky to have you, and we’re fortunate to be a part of something that will make a difference. Keep up the great work!


  1. Rick,

    Thank you for your kind words. It has been an incredible week, leading up to what I count on being an incredible year. I look forward to following up with that beer at the convention with a glass of champaign at the inauguration.


  2. I have to echo Rick's words about how lucky the campaign is to have Aldon. As a resident in New Haven, I've seen his work first hand. Its really amazing given that we are in the middle of Lieberman's hometown (and Bush's birthplace). But all the activity is about Dean. Soon we start canvasing and I'm rather sure that CT-CD3 will go to Dean.

    Go Aldon, Go Dean

  3. The Trip continues...

    Today, I discovered Rick Klau's post pointing to my LiveJournal. I was honored and touched, yet again.

    The trip then got even stranger..
