1. Why have you decided to join us in the field?
It was very important project to help in any way I can and to help re-elect the President.
2. What does it mean to you to help President Obama get re-elected?
It means helping our people move forward. Creating jobs, keeping Medicare and children going to college. I'll do whatever it takes to help the middle-class family move forward.
3. How tough it is to leave your family? How important it is for our communities and working families to get President Obama elected?
It is very tough to leave my family. I am missing my grandchildren, children, my husband and especially my dog. They are all ready for me to come home.
If Romney wins, we will be paying higher taxes, and funding will be cut to Medicare, schooling and healthcare.
