The canvassing effort for Obama in Pennsylvania continues with our busloads of canvassers arriving each Saturday in Easton, Nazareth, Bethlehem and environs to rouse the Dems and Indies to go to the polls on November 6 and vote for the President. Nadine Hoffmann, Peter Crosta, Marti Speranza, Tony Hoffmann, Jonathan Geballe have all organized this effort, along with Act Now and Greater NYC for Change, pulling together a myriad of downtown clubs — and all under the wing of organizer-in-chief Yayoi Tsuchitani. October 13 we were blessed with a sunny day which almost became warm, and we were joined by a busload of Manhattan Young Democrats. And many, many Obama supporters greeted us at the doorways. Nothing beats a warm smile of solidarity.
Except maybe the homemade chili and moist, savory, just-baked cornbread served for lunch to all the canvassers at the Easton Obama branch office.
Please join us on the remaining pre-election Saturdays in cavassing for Obama i Pennsylvania: October 20, October 27, November 3. Buses leave at 8:00 a.m., 15th Street, east side of Union Sq. Return at 7:00 p.m. $10 contribution. The agenda is canvass for 2 hours, stop for lunch (provided by the campaign) and then 2 more hours of door-knocking, and then the ride home. Reserve your seat at firstname.lastname@example.org (reservations required).
