Well, this weekend’s canvassing efforts may be winding down, but Jerry McNerney's campaign against Richard Pombo in CA-11 is kicking into high gear. With groups like the West LA Democratic Club making plans to caravan up to the district for next weekend’s GOTV effort, there’s really no excuse left for Northern California residents not to get involved. Especially when it’s so easy.
The McNerney campaign will be canvassing and phone banking pretty much non-stop for the next eight days. You can call or email John Gunn at the McNerney office, (925) 833-0643 or email@example.com, to make arrangements to come in and help out at ANY TIME (well, almost any time — rumor has it that John does sleep an hour or two each night).
Likewise, the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund will be continuously at work until Tuesday night. Here is their call to action for the coming week:
To Canvass or Call Voters: Monday-Friday:
Come by our office any time between 12:00 PM and 6:00 PM to pick up materials and training.Now, on to phone banking. If you live anywhere in the Bay Area or near Stockton, there’s an organized phone banking opportunity for you. And if you don’t live nearby or if the times are inconvenient, you can now make phone calls for Jerry McNerney from your own home or in the company of friends or neighbors without paying long distance charges, thanks to McNerney’s new predictive dialing system. Visit Jerry McNerney’s Phone From Home page to get the details and get started.
To make things as easy as possible for BART commuters, we will pick you up from and later drop you off at the Pleasanton BART station taxi-turnaround any day from now until Election Day as long as you RSVP in advance to schedule your pick-up. We also provide pizza or sandwiches in the evening for volunteers.
