Today we continue honoring (embarrassing?) USCHS folks. Next up: USCHS board chairman Tom Coleman. We’re honored by all Coleman does for us, but that doesn’t stop us from showing you this:If we ever get back to the office, we’ll ask him if he remembers what this declaration means.
UPDATE! From the candidate himself:
The story behind it is as follows: During a period of time when the press was making a big deal about candidates getting large contributions from wealthy individuals (known as fat cats) we decided that we would go against the grain with our Skinny Cats who would attend our low budget ($10) events. It was a way to differentiate my candidacy from the rest. People really took to it and wore the buttons with pride.
Thanks, Mr. Chairman.
Coleman was a member of the House representing Missouri from 1976 to 1993.
