Duane: Raw Milk Draws Small Crowd

Duane Rasmussen: I attended the first half hour of the meeting. I counted six people on the stage and thirty in the audience. Nine of the people in the audience were children. Bruce Maddox, Paul Mathews, Mike Oliver, Roger Benoit, Tom Robinson, and Bjorn Handen were all on the stage sitting at a table. It appeared that most of the people present were in favor of raw milk. Ron Paul was mentioned as the sponsor of the Raw Milk Freedom legislation which is federal legislation. Bjorn stated that the Town Hall Meeting was sponsored by the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee. No raw milk was served.

Question: Are you surprised by the small turnout for the raw milk seminar?
