Blogger helps young delegate go to national convention

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

An story in the Monitor inspired blogger Joe Monahan of “New Mexico Politics with Joe Monahan” to collect funds to help send a young delegate to the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver.

Monahan presented Los Alamos resident Sean Stimmel with a $250 check Sunday in Albuquerque after reading the July 17 story about the young man's efforts to raise funds for the trip.

The contribution, made possible by the advertisers of www.joemonahan.com, will help Stimmel pay his hotel bill at the Denver Crowne Plaza where the state delegation is set to stay.

“We wish Sean the best in Denver and are pleased that, along with our advertisers, we can play a small part in encouraging the next generation of New Mexicans to pursue public service,” said Monahan.

Stimmel, 19, is the youngest New Mexico delegate ever to attend a convention. He lives in White Rock and will represent the 3rd Congressional District as an alternate.

“This is my first experience with politics and it is one of the most exciting things ever for me,” Stimmel said. “Thanks to the blog for helping make it happen.”
