Mayor Ben Dover is asking residents of Bridgeport to welcome the hoards of people that will fill our streets this Tuesday through Thursday. Many of the visitors will be making their first visit and he's hoping to make a good first impression. Dover told OFF THE WALL News that as a young man, he attended a couple of Losers rallies in Omaha and it gave him the nudge he needed to do something besides nothing. At age 34 he moved out of his parents home and started attending Losers meetings around the country and now less than fifteen years later, he is the Mayor of Bridgeport.

The convention will be held in the Soldiers Convention Center on Main and 2nd St. Guest speakers this year include Arnold Schwarzenegger, who will read from his book, "Just When I Thought I Had It Made, My Maid Ratted Me Out". It is about how he went from being on top to becoming a near loser. Closing speaker on Thursday will be Mitt Romney who promises to talk directly to the 47% he was talking about during his unsuccessful bid for President. "There's nothing wrong with being a loser" is the theme of his presentation.
OFF THE WALL News will be there to keep everyone up to date.
