AWESOME TURNOUT FOR TODAY'S VOTE VOTTO LUNCH!
When was the last time you saw a mayor and a US senator together in the same building with about 200 voters for an election that had nothing to do with politics?
Today’s Vote Votto Lunch at Great American Ball Park was very well attended by dignitaries and fans alike, all after 1 thing…free pizza!….oh and the chance to vote Joey Votto onto the 2010 National League All-Star team!
Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory was joined this afternoon by US Senator Sherrod Brown, along with approximately 200 Joey Votto fans in doing their rightful duty by “Voting Votto.”
Here are the photos..
