A stellar lineup of small business and political experts are scheduled to be on the Tammy Says… Show on Monday, November 1. Several political and small business experts will be on the internet radio show hosted by African American radio entrepreneur and speaker, Tammy Camper.

Donna Brazile, Chair of the Democratic National Committee’s Voting Rights Institute (VRI) and veteran Democratic political strategist, is the former Campaign Manager for Gore-Lieberman 2000 – the first African American to lead a major presidential campaign will start the show with discussion on why it’s important to vote and specifically about the Democratic Party’s Agenda for a better America. Also on Monday’s show will be Susan Au Allen, President of the U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce; Todd McCracken, President of the National Small Business Association; and Tony Salazar, Deputy General Counsel for Provident Bank, President of the Jim Rouse Entrepreneurial Fund (JREF), a nonprofit organization that provides funding to start-up and growing businesses in Howard County and candidate for Congress in Maryland’s 7th Congressional District.

Tammy will also discuss 2 Presidential election polls conducted by KnowledgeStorm Inc. with Raj Gajwani, Director of Market Intelligence. The first poll, with 5,000 respondents, showed that Senator Kerry wins the “businesswomen” vote by 5% and President Bush wins the “businessman” vote by 15%. The second poll, with 1165 respondents all from the computers & technology industry showed another divide among the sexes. The results were that Senator Kerry wins the U.S. technology businesswoman vote by 17.3% and President Bush wins the U.S. Technology businessman vote by 7.4%.

It has been found that the war in Iraq is most important to small business leaders, even more than economic issues. And it’s not just on the Presidential election level. Many of the races across the country are going neck and neck which is when the small-business vote is most likely to make the difference. Tammy Camper, Host of the Tammy Says… show says “I feel blessed to be able to bring this group of distinguished people up close and personal with my audience of business owners to have an opportunity to ask questions directly of these business experts who will enlighten us about the election, the Parties and the issues that have an impact on their particular business group.” The Tammy Says… show is broadcast on SurfNet Media Group, an Internet digital entertainment media and publically traded company.
