Tools to Fight Pombo
UPDATE: I guess the sign-up process is different than I thought. To be clear, sign up for DFA-Link here and then make sure you join the Say No to Pombo group here.
Do you want to fight RICHARD POMBO and kick him out of office in 2006?
Then join the Say No to Pombo DFA-Link.
DFA-Link is a superb online tool that combines the event planning capability of Meetup.com with the social-networking aspect of sites like Friendster, Facebook, and MySpace. The upshot is that it makes it much easier for people to organize online in order to take action offline. It’s simple and free, and I can’t explain how excited I am about it.
But I do have a special reason for posting this today. Democracy for America is running a recruitment drive for DFA-Link and has pledged that the top three recruiters this week will get a call from Jim Dean, the Chair of DFA.
If you are not a member of DFA-Link and you sign up to join the Say No to Pombo DFA-Link, there is a good chance that I will be one of those top recruiters. And if Jim Dean calls me, I will spend the conversation discussing how important it is for DFA to target this race. DFA is already bringing their one grassroots training event in California this year to Stockton (more info here), in the heart of Pombo Country. But let's not rest on our laurels. By joining the Say No to Pombo DFA-Link today, you are demonstrating the energy at the grassroots to kick Pombo out of office and take back our Congress.
Join the Say No to Pombo DFA-Link.
If you are already a DFA-Link member, by joining the Say No to Pombo DFA-Link you are sending a message that taking on Pombo is one of your priorities. Imagine the message we will send to DFA and other groups if we become one of the fastest-growing groups in the country.
Whatever the case, once you join it will be much, much easier to let you know about important, exciting, and interesting anti-Pombo activities coming up. You can even get a feel for who in your local area is interested in working to oust Pombo and collaborate with them. Again, it is free, it is simple, and it’s very, very useful.
The contest ends Sunday, so sign up today.
