Clay Aiken – A Day On The Campaign Trail

 

Wednesday, September 3rd was a busy day for Clay Aiken.  It was interesting that the news came from social networking!

Clay and his team used twitter to let people know what he was doing:

Clay Aiken @ClayForNC Visited NC’s first Veterans Treatment Court in #HarnettCounty. We need to expand these courts across the US. #ncpol

Clay followed this up with another tweet:

Read about the importance of Veterans Treatment Courts in my article:

The following is what Clay wrote about the Veterans Treatment Counts:

 Expanding Veterans Treatment Courts

Veterans often face difficulties transitioning into civilian life. Unfortunately, that can sometimes lead them into criminal behavior.

Veterans Treatment Courts focus on rehabilitation when mental health and substance abuse problems prompted criminal activity. These courts are modeled after successful drug courts.

In North Carolina, we opened our first Veterans Treatment Court in Harnett County in 2013. But these courts need to be more accessible to all of our veterans.

Congress needs to move on passing H.R. 2187 – Service member Assistance for Lawful Understanding Treatment and Education Act, which was reintroduced in the U.S. House in May 2013 by Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-PA-07). It’s time to take action on providing veterans the justice they deserve.

Later, a  message was posted on Facebook from New Frame, LLC.  According to their website:

New Frame, LLC, is a new lobbying and communications firm in North Carolina, unlike any other in the state…New Frame combines social media, one-on-one advocacy, and digital video to deliver powerful messages accessible for all budget levels…

This company posted about Clay Aiken on their Facebook page:

New Frame is having fun at UFCW Local 1208 with Clay Aiken today.

UFCW Local 1208  used the same picture when they posted the following:

UFCW posted more information on their Facebook page:

It is interesting to see the important groups that Clay is able to meet with…each visit is important to let the voters of District2, NC know more about Clay and his ideas for making their life a bit easier.

I would imagine that we will be hearing more and more about visits that Clay will be making as we get closer to the General election in November.

Remember, Clay…take your vitamins, sleep when you can, and savor every moment of this amazing experience!!
