Following is a post by Volunteer Fire Fighters Executive Director Eric Bernard on the volunteers' listserv at 11:15 on Friday night. The Volunteer Fire Fighters have endorsed Ben Kramer. You have to read this to believe it, folks.

Subject: [MCVFRA] HELP Needed Tomorrow at Candidate's Forum

Good evening, we have received several phone calls tonight for help tomorrow at the last candidate's forum for district 4. There was almost a full out brawl at tonight’s forum at of all places Leisure World according to several people who were there. There were supposedly Navarro supporters or at least anti-Kramer people there, who we were told, tried to hi-jack the forum. The descriptions we have heard are bad but that Ben did very well. They are asking for supporters to attend tomorrow's forum at the Praisner Library from 11a-12:30p. If you can PLEASE help - please attend to hold signs and help Ben win!! ****Candidate Forum District 4: African American Democratic Club of Montgomery County.

TOMORROW: Saturday, April 18, 2009, 11:00 AM--12:30 PM Marilyn Praisner Library 14910 Old Columbia Pike Burtonsville, MD 20866

The election is just 4 days away and EVERY vote counts. Last primary was won by Mr. Praisner by only 317 votes!!!

Thanks, Marcine and Eric

Back to reality. I attended the Leisure World debate on Friday. MCGEO Executive Director Bob Stewart asked Ben Kramer a question about his vote on progressive taxation and Kramer answered it. There was no brawl. There was no threat of a brawl. There was no hijacking by anyone at all. Nothing happened.

This listserv message gives real insight into the current state of mind of the Kramer campaign.
