David speaks out

David said, in welcome and wishing everyone a pleasant evening,

"Our political opponents want to make this a one issue election. They are too late. It has been a one issue election from the start. And the issue is welfare. The welfare of your self and your family now and into the future. If people vote to change the economic and political direction of the country because of a dislike of some individual person or policy, they will not only be throwing the baby out with the bathwater but the bath as well'."
