Clay Aiken – “An Astute Strategist”

Monday was a quiet day, but for supporters of Clay Aiken, the day ended on a high-point.  Clay Aiken attended a “Rousing & informative” dinner in District 2 of North Carolina.  Fortunately, a few people posted about the event.

And then…

I love seeing, “independent thinker, good listener, astute strategist!

What do you know about The House of Representatives? I have to admit, it’s been years since I studied U.S. Government.

The following are a few things about The House of Representatives.

The Members of the U.S. House of Representatives meet in the House Chamber

There are 435 Members in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Members are divided among the 50 states. The number of Representatives given to each state is based on its population. The more citizens a state has, the more Representatives it receives.

Each state is divided into districts based on the number of Representatives it receives. Each Representative serves one district.

Every district holds elections for its Representative every two years. In order to run for election to the U.S. House of Representatives, a candidate must be at least 25 years old, have lived in the United States for at least seven years, and live in the state they would represent.

Once elected, Members of the U.S. House of Representatives spend most of their weeks in Washington, D.C. proposing bills and making laws. Representatives are responsible for researching how proposed bills would affect their districts. By understanding the impact the bill could have on their district, Representatives are better able to decide whether or not to support it.

Representatives have more responsibilities in addition to making laws. They each serve on two committees, where they are subject experts who closely examine bills before they are voted on. They help citizens and groups from their districts find funding for projects, like building bridges or creating after-school programs. They oversee their offices in their districts and Washington, D.C., including working with their staff to create a budget and manage their employees. Although Members of the U.S. House of Representatives spend their weeks in Washington, D.C., they return home on weekends and during district work periods to work more closely with the citizens of their district.

Thank you to Kids In The House for the information.

I cannot think of anyone who would do a better job of representing the people of North Carolina than Clay Aiken.

He listens to the people

He has fresh and new ideas

And wants to make a difference.

  1. Thanks for bringing this over musicfan! I need a refresher course on how our government works! It's been wayyyy too long since I've been in school! Clay is going to be a great representitive! But we all knew that, didn't we!

  2. Thanks for the info ladies, interesting, sounds like a lot of work to be a rep for Congress but Clay is a hard and dedicated worker so he would do well I'm sure, God bless him, hope he gets elected!

  3. Thank you Musicfan. As a Canadian, I am learning lots about American Politics. It is greatly appreciated. Reading about how Clay is an Independant Thinker, Good Listener, and an Astute Strategist…he seems to be the clear choice for the people of North Carolina. We have always known this, but it sure is great seeing people "get" Clay now…..

  4. It was good to see in print just what is expected of the members of the House of Representatives. Clay has the intelligence, drive and dedication to carry out the job he will (hopefully) be elected to do. I have noticed that there seem to be more women than men coming to hear Clay discuss the issues at these meetings. I hope it is only because women want to get a photo with Clay and the guys stay in the background. With those long arms, Clay is able to take a lot of selfies with his admirers.
