Defeat Pombo Day Of Action — Oct. 7

This Saturday is going to be another Defeat Pombo Day of Action, with massive voter outreach being conducted by several groups. First, please consider joining the Manteca Democratic Club at the Manteca Pumpkin Festival. There, you can support Jerry McNerney while also helping to build strong and long-term Democratic Party infrastructure in the Central Valley.

Or, if you would prefer, you can participate in the events scheduled by the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund. I’ve heard rumors that there is a giant pasta feed involved in their plans. The following is not a direct quote, but rather an amalgam of different items posted by the Defenders:
On Saturday, September 16, 154 of you showed up to canvass nearly 10,000 households in Danville, San Ramon, Dublin, Pleasanton, and Stockton . We worked well as a team, so let’s make it bigger, better, and even more effective in putting the squeeze on Pombo on the second “Defeat Pombo Day of Action” on Saturday, October 7.

Our goal for October 7 is 250 – yes, two hundred fifty – volunteers to canvass more than 15,000 households in Tracy and in the Tri-Valley. How you can help to reach this 250 is easy: Come (or come back) and bring a friend! If even two-thirds of you who joined us on September 16 bring just one other person with you, we’ll already have 200 persons for October 7.

Lunch and transportation will be provided, including bus pick-up and drop-off and BART shuttle service from the Pleasanton BART station.

Of course, you’re not limited to canvassing with the Defenders. You can always contact the Jerry McNerney campaign and sign up to participate in their canvassing and/or phone banking programs. They’ll be walking in Dublin, Lodi, Morgan Hill, Tracy and Stockton on Saturday. On Sunday they will continue canvassing in Dublin, Stockton and Tracy. There will also be phone banking over the weekend and on weeknights. Check the website for details.

Oh the agony of the dee feet, I'm sure everyone is saying the same thing. But we have a different meaning, the hard workers who have been out in force to see that Jerry wins this race. If you put it into miles it will be well worth the sore feet. When the dust settles we hope to see a new Congressman. His name is Jerry Mc Nerney. We are almost there, keep up the good work. As far as I can see " mission is accomplished" 32 days to go.
Vote Jerry Mc Nerney.

Check out this diary on DailyKos. A resident of the Bay Area just got involved in phone banking for the McNerney campaign, and the story of his adventure is pretty inspiring.

“It seems like Republicans will always have the money advantage in any race, given their natural constituency, and the only way to counter this will be to have ‘boots on the ground’ as they say. I just feel lucky that there is a competitive race close to me that I can at least try to make a difference in.

“If anyone is reading this in the Bay Area who wants to help out, the McNerney Campaign will be doing phone banking at the SEIU every Sunday, Monday and Wednesday from 5pm-9pm until the election. More info here.”
