A RALLYING CRY FOR THE APPLE CORPS: BLOCK WALK BLITZ NOV 19!
Come out and help Karen Felthauser and meet Democrats in Williamson County! Here is an invitation from Karen:
We are planning a Block Walk Blitz on Sat. Nov 19 to get them.
We plan on walking precinct 146 [MAP in .pdf] in NW Austin. This precinct had 1,258 votes for Kerry and was therefore only 6.87% away from turning Democratic. That is the most voters for any precinct that is within 10% of changing over.
Sadly, we do not currently have a chair in this precinct. Our plan is to get a block walk list of Democratic Primary voters and knock on their doors garnering signatures and searching out a new precinct chair. When I have used the Dem primary voters list to collect signatures I have not had a single person turn me down and I have met a lot of great Democrats. This should not be hard. (I collected 10 signatures in one hour using this list. With any luck, at this rate, we could get the 300 signatures in 3 hours with only 10 volunteers.) Please join us.
We will meet in the morning at 9:00 AM at the McDonald's on 183 by the Alamo Draft House [MAP]. There we will get a short training, maps and walk lists.
Then we will gather at Applebee's at 2PM to debrief and to celebrate the efforts of the Apple Corps. Should be fun. [MAP]
Let me know if you can make it so we can plan for the correct number of block walk teams.
Come out and join Karen in getting these signatures. It will save $750, which can instead be put to use in another capacity to assist in getting Karen elected to HD 52. Also, I highlighted the fact that we have no precinct chair in the precinct. If you live in 146 and are a Democrat you are not alone by a longshot. Please join us and help us connect with Democrats.
