Paula Dockery's gubernatoral deliberations



State Sen. Paula Dockery in an e-mail sent yesterday to supporters:

First of all, I want to thank you for your support and encouragement over the past three weeks in this political question of running for Governor. I have been surprised, overwhelmed, flattered and humbled by the attention, urging and drafting effort.

I am taking this decision very seriously and wanted to give you an update. Today, for more than 9 hours, Doc and I met with our trusted friend and political consultant as part of my due diligence in my decision making process of whether I should enter the Governor race. We have a better feel for what is involved and will continue to seek guidance and advice as we consider this life changing decision.
