Quick diary because I must be off to Sunday events in Comal County.
1st: 2-4P gathering for Dems at Eagles Hall in New Braunfels. This is for Kathleen Krueger who is running for County Commissioner. The Castro brothers will be there, I'm told. Yes! that would be Julián and Joaquín!
Next is blockwalking, our last time out. Early voting starts TOMORROW.
I will probably be a pollwatcher for the John Courage campaign (running for Texas Senator from D.25 against Teabagger, Donna Campbell.)
Yesterday was an historic event. About 50 of us Dems gathered for training for duty as voting place judges, clerks, and pollwatchers. Long time residents said they have never seen anything like this! The Republicans have had it all their own way in Comal County for far too long. Too late to reach parity in poll duty for this election, but for sure by 2014.
Here's an email that I got a few days ago:
Dear Democrats in Comal County,Names redacted because I didn't have time to get permissions to use. But the message is clear, we've had enuf of Republican intimidation tactics and we're not gonna take it anymore.
Important info from DoCC. But the most important thing is to take [RB] and [KB]'s phone numbers in with you when you vote!! And if you see any sign of intimidation, please don't hesitate to call either one of them. The Republicans know that we're on to their scare tactics and we're going to stop them.
Will try to write more tomorrow. Gotta run.
Yours for a damn fine fight!
