In case you missed my late notice last weekend, I’d like to remind you all about a new & exciting way we can help elect Barack Obama as our next President! EVERY weekend between now & election day, volunteers from Southern California will be “caravaning” to Nevada to work with the Obama campaign there. As we all know, Nevada will be one of the most crucial swing states for Democrats this fall. That’s why we need to help our friends up there in turning their state blue.
The volunteer bus & volunteer carpools will meet this Saturday at 6:30 AM at the Mile Square Park & Ride at the corner of Brookhurst & Heil (at Mile Square Park) in Fountain Valley. If you live in North OC, there will be a second stop at the Brea Park & Ride Lot (across from Brea Mall) on Lambert, near State College Blvd. & the 57 Freeway. The bus and/or car ride is FREE, so all you need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org to let our local grassroots team know you want to go.
Remember to bring along some sunscreen, money for meals, a hat, comfortable walking attire, and a can-do spirit. Oh yes, and don’t forget that rides are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so arrive early (6:00 AM for Fountain Valley, 6:20 for Brea) to ensure a seat. And if you’d like to drive a carpool yourself or help out some other way, email email@example.com to let the team know.
Nevada is truly ripe for our picking this year, as Democrats now outregister Republicans in the state & Obama is now pulling even against McCain. If we want to stop the third Bush-Cheney term that McCain-Palin will bring, it’s up to us to be the change we want to see NOW! If you want to be proactive in helping Obama & Democrats win this fall, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up & get on the bus! 🙂
