Craig Shirley - Ronald Reagan In Dixon
Craig Shirley grew up in Syracuse, New York and got involved in politics and the Conservative Party at a young age. His first memory of Ronald Reagan was hearing a record album in 1965 of Reagan's 'A Time for Choosing' Speech, where Reagan endorsed Barry Goldwater. During Ronald Reagan's presidential elections in 1980 and 1984, Shirley was approached to work for the Conservative Party to acquire funds for the Reagan Campaign.
