Six Ways To Help Jerry This Weekend

This announcement just arrived from the folks at Project BlueBridge, and I wanted to pass it on. There are just a head-spinning number of ways this weekend to Say No To Pombo. Wow!
The McNerney campaign is launching 5 canvasses from 3 locations this Saturday. This is the first in an all out blitz of CD11. Canvassers will be leaving from Stockton, Tracy and Dublin. The walk times have been scheduled to reach the maximum number of “at-homes” so your efforts will produce the maximum results. Canvassers will be registering and ID-ing voters and getting Jerry’s name out.

If you’ve joined us before…come on back. If you haven’t jumped in yet…now is the time to start. Last week just one person registered 12 voters and talked 2 sets of voters to register at their new homes so their vote could help oust Pombo. Just think what 20 people can do. Please click on the link below and follow the instructions for RSVPing. You might also include your location and whether you can host a carpool.

Going forward, the campaign is planning canvassing from each of the 3 locations every weekend until the election. Head on out there and stay tuned for PBB carpools.

Saturdays 9am to 1pm and 4pm to 8pm (as daylight permits)
Sundays – 4pm to 8pm

The sixth way to help
Join The Defenders of Wildlife Saturday canvass which occurs weekly until the election. They are targeting a crucial group of voters – “Decline to States” and Republicans. The goals are to persuade voters to vote for McNerney or at least not to vote for Pombo, one of the 13 of most corrupt members of Congress per a non-partisan watchdog group. BlueBridge will be sponsoring other canvassing events with the Defenders of Wildlife, or, to sign on directly to help the Defenders in Pleasanton this (or any) Saturday, contact Ed Yoon at or (925) 249-1615

Jerry also needs phone bankers Friday the 18th and Monday the 21st:

The McNerney campaign needs phone-bankers tomorrow (Friday) from 10-5 and Monday from 10-8 in their Dublin office to call prospective donors about attending an upcoming fundraiser in Orinda sponsored by Sen. Barbara Boxer. We would be calling people who have already received an invitation and will be leaving messages on answering machines.

The fundraiser is next Friday, August 25, from 5 – 7 pm at the Orinda Masonic Center, 9 Altarinda Road.

If you can help support this event by phone-banking, please call (925) 833-0643 and let the campaign know. The Dublin office is at 6250 Village Parkway (but don't use Mapquest). The campaign can pick you up at the Dublin BART station.
Okay. So I’m not sure exactly how they counted to six, but hey, I’m game. If you’ve been wondering what you can do to help defeat Pombo, problem solved!
