My name is Giovanna Negretti and I am the Executive Director of ¿Oíste?, the first and only statewide Latino Political Organization in Massachusetts. However, today I am writing to you as a registered Democrat.
Last March I was the only Latina elected as an Obama Delegate for the 8th Congressional District of Massachusetts. This coming Sunday, I will be at the National Democratic Convention and I want to ensure that everyone who had a part in ensuring my election has the opportunity to experience the Convention as if you were there. For this reason, I have accepted an invitation by The Boston Globe to be one of 7 bloggers at the Democratic National Convention. Starting on Sunday, August, 24, 2008, you can go to www.boston.com to read updates on what is happening in Denver every day until Thursday, August 28, 2008. I am excited at the opportunity to bring you insights on the different events, activities, speakers and inside details of what promises to be a historic Convention! The better informed we are, the better decisions we make. I am looking forward to sharing my experiences so that you can have a different perspective on what is happening. My goal is to ensure that every reader feels as though they were right there with me. Thank you!
