Talking Politics - Personal Musings.TRACKBACK: New York, NY. 30 Jan 2006Good friend Mark Ritchie (Founder, President of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy and the fellow who assisted in flying me out to the Fair Trade Expo in Hong Kong) is running for Minnesota Secretary-of-State. Mark invited me to his political fundraiser in NYC at Anne Hess and Craig Kaplan's House. The night was shared with two other political strongarms, but it was Mark, who wooed the crowd of people. Mark has a very commanding, albeit welcoming and trusting presence. A leader by nature, brought into politics with the realization that he can make a major difference. Truly awe-inspiring speech, enough for me to think about getting into politics in the future. God knows I've been around them enough as of late. ;o) Wish you the best Mark, look forward to discussing more about biopolymers and fair trade when you win the race.
