Indiana Woman to Have Dinner With Obama

March 27, 2008 — Bonnie Locchetta has a lot to say to Barack Obama, and she’ll soon get her chance.

The 44-year-old Rushville, Ind., woman was chosen to have dinner with the Democratic presidential candidate after she donated $25 to his campaign.

“I want to ask him what he plans to do to help people like me send their kids to college and help people like me to retire who have no savings and to help people like my mother who’s struggling to afford her medication when she’s also struggling to pay her housing and all her bills,” she said Wednesday.

The single mother of three said she has followed Obama since his speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, and was inspired to “put a little money where my mouth was” on Monday to support him. She said his policies on the economy, the Iraq war and education make him the best candidate.

“He says a lot of things that make sense to me and he’s coming at things from such an angle that I think he can change things,” Locchetta said.

I think it’s a good idea to have presidential candidates meet potential voters face to face. It gives them the opportunity to listen to what average everyday Americans are going through, especially when it comes to domestic issues like the economy.
