More on tonight's speech...

U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney, D-2nd District, has invited Woodstock resident Ken Goldsmith to be his guest at the Capitol to watch President Bush's State of the State Address tonight. Goldsmith is in the U.S. Navy reserves and nominated Courtney at the 2nd Congressional District convention last May. Goldsmith also appeared with Courtney at a couple of campaign stops during the election, voicing his concerns over the lack of health care afforded to those in the reserves and National Guard after returning from deployment.

Goldsmith has flown hundreds of missions in support of global military operations, including several extended periods in the Persian Gulf region. He also commanded a nine day mission flying relief supplies to New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina. Locally, he serves on the Woodstock Planning and Zoning Commission and the board of directors of the Northeast Economic Alliance.
