My Hip Mom

She’s small but compelling, a woman at ease with folks from the streets (“my people” she calls the indigent and mentally ill of Boston, Newark, Hartford and elsewhere), a fan of wearing her collar up, or vibrant and artful styles from Chico’s.  From Franklin Hill in Mattapan to the shore of the Long Island Sound in Connecticut, she’s show me a lot and lived a variety of experiences. 

Now, it seems, we should all be paying attention to her and her neighbors in her adopted home in Connecticut. 

“Political observers and party activists alike view the sprawling 2nd District as a bellwether for the nation,” in the dead heat race for the 2nd U.S. congressional district. 

As you probably can imagine, my mom and stepdad’s yard is crowded with Courtney signs.  Consider this the unofficial Redstar endorsement.
