Guantanamo Meeting

I had a meeting with someone from Jon Tester's office today about closing down Guantanamo Bay. This one actually occurred unlike the meeting we were supposed to have with Max Baucus. Kyle, Lacey, and I talked to Vicky Stephens, one of Tester's "Field Representatives." She was very pleasant and sympathetic to our request. She promised to pass along our information to the Senator and said we could call her to follow up.

I really enjoyed this opportunity. We still are going to try to meet with someone in Baucus's office and we also briefly talked about putting together a community forum or something similar to spread the word to people. Being a part of something bigger than yourself is exciting.
