More Great News Out of New Hampshire

Posted by patricks54 on May 22, 2007

Two more pieces of great news from New Hampshire. John Edwards, in response to a question from ServeNext member Aaron Marquez, publicly committed to increasing AmeriCorps by at least 100,000 members.
Here it is (very much paraphrased – the answer is actually 2 minutes long) from the blog on

Questions from the audience:
Q: I have served in Americorps. Will you expand it by 100K people?
A: Yes. We should also consider going further, maybe mandatory national service. Elizabeth and I started an after-school program as a memorial to Wade.

We’ll have the video up very soon.

Joe Biden also outlined his commitment to AmeriCorps and National Service on WMUR’s Conversation with the Candidate. You can see the video here.

Kudos to City Year NH volunteer Haroula Tsdakidis for getting Sen. Biden on the record about National Service!
