As many of you probably know by now, I'm running for Democratic Central Committee in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. On August 13th, I, along with several other candidates, are launching a large canvass operation as part of our "30 Days to Victory" operation in the county.
More than simply a canvass operation for ourselves, we are inviting all Democratic campaigns, activists, and supporters to join us to help get-out-the-vote of Democrats in the September 12th primary. As long as folks are willing to knock on doors for our campaign, we are more than willing to support their efforts to reach voters here in AA County.
I've asked you for money before, and this community has been generous. Over half of the $1000 I've raised so far has come from DKos. But now I'm asking for something different. I'm asking for my neighbors in Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia to come join me for a Sunday afternoon and help me knock on the doors of our Democrats to emphasize the importance of this year's election.
For your efforts, you will be handsomely rewarded with a BBQ dinner. And believe me, this is the real deal kind of BBQ...slow cooked and everything. You won't want to miss it.
Of course, you can always get the BBQ dinner WITHOUT canvassing...for a nominal donation to the campaign of twenty bucks. But this is more about hitting the streets and getting back to grassroots politics, so I'd prefer it if you come knock the doors.
If you are interested, go to my website and click on the "Contact Me" link and drop me an e-mail telling me you would like to come out and canvass. I'll be happy to use the help.
Thanks in advance for reading this public service announcement. Now back to the show.
