-I will be delivering yard signs and door knocking through most of the week. Tis the season for campaigning! I am looking forward to talking to the good people of the 11th District while wearing, what has become, my signature yellow shirts. Please let me know if you are interested in joining us!


I invite constituents to stop by one of the following meetings to share a question or concern about a legislative or district matter that may be on their mind:


·         COFFEE MEETING – Friday, November 4th – 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. – Willey Farms (Townsend)

I love my constituents! In a recent conversation in Hartly Hardware, one of them offered me a couple of squirrels to cook. Hmmmm… what to do with squirrel…? How about Jamaican Jerk Squirrel! What started out as a novelty ended up being pretty good. The jerk marinade is one you may recognized from a few years ago.

-4 cleaned squirrels

-3 de-seeded Scotch Bonnet peppers

-1 teaspoon fresh thyme

-1 tablespoon freshly ground allspice

-1 teaspoon ginger powder

-1 garlic clove

-1/2 a medium onion

-salt and pepper to taste

-large dash of nutmeg

-1 cup sweet red wine (I used Blue Hen Blue by Harvest Ridge Winery)


Combine all the ingredients except the squirrels in a blender or food processor. Marinate the squirrels overnight. Put all ingredients in a slow cooker. Add enough water for there to be an inch of liquid in the cooker. Cook on low until the squirrel falls off the bone (about 3-4 hours). Serve over red beans and rice.

— Thanks.
