Jarralynne Agee’s Inauguration Trip Saturday

Share

I was elected to represent Alabama as a Obama delegate at the 2012 Democratic National Convention held in Charlotte in September. I was happy to blog about my experiences while I was there and so very grateful to get to spend time with people from all over the country and those closer to home as well. This year, my husband and I were blessed to secure tickets to attend the swearing in.

This time I plan to write about my experiences being a part of this historic event and my experiences along the way. What I have found is most inspiring about this trip are the numbers of people that are here, not only to celebrate but to serve. I arrived on Thursday and became a part of the President’s volunteer corps. Each morning I check in media from all over the world and hand them their press credentials and secret service badges. One of my former interns, Victoria and I have been working shifts together.

We have met writers, photographers, editors, producers from as far away as China, London and Russia as well as a lot of hometown papers and college publications here to cover the event.

On Friday morning I spent so much time on the Capitol that I am sure I walked the equivalent of a 5k. There was lots of walking back and forth from Rayburn visiting with my friend in Congressman Meeks office to Longworth where I met with Congresswoman Sewell and her staff.  I enjoyed sitting in Sewell’s office where I ran into PR whiz Malena Cunningham, Retired Judge Robin Burrell and Birmingham’s own native son, Brandon Dean.

I’m looking forward to even more great experiences while I am here.
