I am about to kick start this blog. I have a vision of it as an informal place to let all those interested in flipping TX-07 find out what we are up to and talk. ( I am not sure if the type of page I am creating right this minute is capable of accepting responses, but eventually I will figure it out.) We are hard working activists that believe we can do this by registering all eligible voters and knocking on doors to make sure they make it to the polls this spring for the primaries and again next November for the mid-term election. We need all hands on board if we are going to get this done; that means you need to join us.
This election season we cannot afford to let time get away from us as we sit transfixed by the train wreck of bad news, so we are planning a Block Walking Summit on January 6th. Knocking doors is a priority. That does not mean every one of you needs to knock doors. Some of you can host a block walk, some can phone bank requesting volunteers join us to block walk, some can help with data entry, and some will knock doors.
If you have never organized or knocked doors getting started can be daunting. So, Jane Lesnick, Jay Taylor, Sarah Murphy, and I are coming up with a plan to help leaders and precinct chairs get started with this bread and butter activity.
If you want to chip in on the planning let us know. You can always e-mail me at Rebecca@swingtx7left.org.
