A Hometown Article about Bill and Hillary Clinton

The pretty lady on the left in the banner above is my friend Ronni Diamondstein who writes for WAG Magazine.  Ronni was kind enough to share this article from WAG with me, and I thought some of you might enjoy it too.  There is a great slideshow, too!


Synergy is a word that comes to mind when I think of Hillary and Bill Clinton. They are a formidable team. Both with impressive resumés of years of service, most recently, the tireless work they do for The Clinton Foundation and its many worldwide initiatives. Both have had many titles, too, but no doubt one that brings them much pleasure is their latest, “grandparent.” However, there is one title that those of us in Chappaqua are quite fond of: neighbor.

Fifteen years ago this month the Clintons made Chappaqua their home. Over the years they have become part of the fabric of the community and I have had the pleasure to talk to them and observe them around town.

Thank you, Ronni!

From Bill and Hillary Clinton on the Passing of Tom Menino

Rest in peace...

Statement from President and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Tom Menino


Hillary and I were saddened to learn of the passing of Tom Menino. In his twenty years as Boston’s mayor, he became a legendary advocate and champion for all of Boston’s citizens in all of its neighborhoods; he believed with all his heart that at the end of the day, if things weren’t getting better in every corner of Boston, the job wasn’t done.
And nobody knew better than Tom how to get things done. He was a strong supporter and partner in my administration’s efforts to strengthen community policing, and to increase jobs and business opportunities in urban areas.
We’ll always remember and be grateful for Tom’s support, his friendship, and the clear joy he felt in a life devoted to public service. We were blessed to be able to say goodbye to Tom last week, and our thoughts and prayers are with Angela, his children, and his many friends and admirers.

Email from Hillary

I know we’re just a few days out from a down-to-the-wire election that will have major consequences for our future -- but try to forget about all the politics for a second. Instead, try to remember why you became a Democrat in the first place.
If you’re like me, it’s because you believe that we’re all in this together, and that we all have a responsibility to each other and to something bigger than ourselves.
  • You believe that our elections should be decided by the people -- not by a flood of unaccountable outside money.
  • You believe that men and women should be paid the same amount for the same work and that no one who puts in a hard day’s work should live in poverty.
  • You believe that our economy and our democracy should work for everyone.
  • You believe that we should strive for a world where every child grows up with a fair shot at the American Dream.
So it’s time to put those beliefs into action.
Will you donate $5 or more to support our Democratic campaigns in this final week of the election?
All donations to this email triple-matched
Chip in $5 immediately >>
Chip in $35 immediately >>
Chip in $50 immediately >>
Chip in $100 immediately >>
Chip in $250 immediately >>
Or click here to donate another amount.
I know you’re sick of emails asking you for money. But I’m telling you: this is important.
We have some great Democratic campaigns out there fighting for the values we share -- they will make you proud. But with just 5 days until the election, they’re fending off some pretty ugly attacks from the other side.
And here’s the kicker: each and every one of these elections is too-close-to-call. That means our efforts in these final days to get out our Democratic message -- and most importantly, get out our Democratic voters -- will make all the difference.
If you’ve been waiting for the right time to give, this is it. Please chip in whatever you can today.
Thanks for everything you do,
Hillary Clinton

Thank you from Hillary Clinton

If you took the time to send Hillary a birthday card via the Clinton Foundation, you were lucky enough to receive this thank you from her this afternoon.

Mme. Secretary, thank you for all you do, including for being kind enough to thank us!

Clinton Foundation

Thank you for your warm birthday wishes. Your thoughtful card highlights some of the work I'm most proud of at the Clinton Foundation – work that we are able to accomplish because of supporters like you.

Thank You

I believe that everyone has a role to play in building a future of shared prosperity and opportunity, whether it's empowering women and girls around the world to achieve full participation, giving young people of all ages the learning and employment opportunities they need to live up to their God-given potential, or protecting elephants from poachers and stopping illegal ivory trafficking.

With your support, we are solving urgent problems and helping more people in more places live their best life story. That is the best gift I could hope for, and I appreciate your faith in our shared mission to build a better world.

Best wishes.

Sincerely yours,

Hillary Clinton in Somers NY for Sean Patrick Maloney

Hillary stuck close to home today to appear at a "Women for Maloney" event in Somers, NY.  Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney is defending his seat against Nan Hayworth in New York's 18th congressional district. Hillary's remarks included clarification of comments she made in Boston at a Martha Coakley rally on Friday which were taken out of context by many. 

This week,  Hillary will be heading to campaign events in Iowa for Bruce Braley, New Hampshire for Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan, and will return to Kentucky for Alison Lundergan Grimes.  On Thursday, she will return to Georgetown University to speak about Women's Economic Participation.

Happy Birthday, Hillary!

Wishing you a wonderful birthday in appreciation of all you do.  Thank you for your brilliant leadership and dedicated service.


Hillary Clinton Stumping for Kay Hagan in North Carolina

Crowds piled into the Charlotte Convention Center this afternoon to see Kay Hagan and welcome Hillary Clinton.  According to CNN's Dan Merica it took Hillary under two minutes to mention her little granddaughter named Charlotte who will turn one month old tomorrow on Hillary's birthday.

Hillary and Kay Hagan spoke for a little more than a half hour during which a heckler briefly interrupted shouting about immigration. Hillary told the audience that Senator Hagan has a comprehensive plan for better jobs, better wages, and better schools.  She said the fact that women in NC still get paid less than men for the same work costs those families thousands of dollars and that women's rights are like the canaries in the coal mine.  If they are not protected everyone is at risk.
