NORWICH -- Democratic congressional candidate Shaun McNally took advantage of National Peace Corps Week (March 1-7) to speak about his own experiences in the program and promote his congressional candidacy.

McNally spoke to a group of Groton business and community leaders Tuesday, and will address the Norwich Rotary Club Wednesday, sharing his experiences and the vision the Peace Corps offers for a better world.

McNally directed an agricultural program in Liberia while serving in the Peace Corps in the early 1980s. He returned to Liberia in 1997 to serve as a presidential election observer.

Although last week's and this week's speeches are billed as non-political events, McNally's Peace Corps experience is central to his congressional candidacy. He frequently refers to those experiences when discussing foreign policy issues.

n The push is on for campaign contributions prior to this month's campaign finance reporting deadline.

The first quarter fund-raising cycle closes March 31, with fund-raising reports due to the Federal Elections Commission by April 15.

According to the Republican National Congressional Campaign Committee Web site, U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons, R-2nd District, has a $1,000 per person/PAC fund-raiser planned in Washington March 31, the last day of the quarter.

Democratic challenger James Sullivan, according to his Web site, has five fund-raisers scheduled this month throughout the district. An event in Glastonbury has the highest posted contribution request, $150 per person.

There was no information available regarding Democratic challenger Shaun McNally's fund-raising efforts.

n Hoping to capitalize on Friday's release of unemployment figures, the Sullivan campaign issued a press release criticizing President Bush's economic policies -- and Simmons' support of the Bush tax cuts.

The Labor Department report showed only 21,000 new jobs created last month. Nearly three million jobs have been lost over the last three years.

"Bush and Simmons economic policies put the 'trickle' back into 'trickle-down economics,'" Sullivan said in the release. "There can be no recovery without jobs. This latest report shows that, despite the claims of George Bush and Rob Simmons, there is no economic recovery in this country."

n Simmons sponsored legislation last week re-authorizing the federal programs that provides nutritional services to vulnerable children.

"As the husband of a public school teacher, I know how important school nutrition programs are," Simmons said. "This bill will ensure scarce federal funds are not diverted away from the needy children these programs are meant to serve."
