    What are you going to say about Mr. Ellsworth?

    What is your thesis statement?

    Write your thesis first, then the body of your essay. The last thing you should write is the introduction.

    You wouldn't introduce a speaker without knowing who he is, would you?

    Ms.Sue,
    Should I write something like this: Brad Ellsworth was born to a Catholic family on September 11, 1958. In 1981 he graduated from Indiana State University with a B.S. in sociology and then in 1993 he graduated with a M.S. in criminology. He is married to Beth and they have one daughter. His career consisted of being a police officer for many years. He was a sheriff for seven years in Vanderburgh County in Indiana. Brad is now serving his second term as the United States Representative for the 8th district in Indiana.
    Is this what you are talking about?
    Thanks.

    That's a good biography.

    Now -- how does he stand on national issues? Republican? Democrat? Conservative? Moderate? Liberal?

    Check his views on his web site.

    Ms. Sue,
    Brad Ellsworth is a conservative Democrat. He has taken a stand on many issues, such as, Agriculture, Armed Services, Small Business, Education as well as many other issues.
    Should I talk about his stand on each issue that he stands for?
    Thanks for your help.

    I suggest you choose three to five issues that you and/or the voters of the 8th district consider most important. Then explain his stand on only those issues.
