KNOCKING ON DOORS FOR SUOZZI IN NY-03, FEB. 10th
It was the final weekend of knocking on doors (but more knocking, phone banking and train station canvassing still available until Feb. 13th! See above). VID was part of a (growing) coalition consisting of Democratic Clubs and Grassroots Organizations that came together once again in NY-03! Thanks to VID'er, Melissa Carty, who has been brilliantly coordinating all of these inter-club and organizational efforts for weeks and weeks! And thanks to Assemblymember Harvey Epstein for his coordination with the effort as well Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon who joined us on the bus. And to Rep. Dan Goldman's office and staff for once again providing transportation and coordination.
In addition to the Clubs and organizations who knocked on doors Saturday, we were also joined by individual volunteers (and some first-time canvassers!):
VID, Hell's Kitchen Dems, Four Freedoms, Chelsea Reform Democratic Club, Westside Dems, Lexington Democratic Club, IND/Brooklyn, Rise and Resist, Markers for Democracy, Downtown Nasty Women and the political club from Trinity High School! #CLUBLOVE!
Once at Suozzi HQ we were greeted by Rep. Joe Morelle (NY-25) and Rep. Suzan DelBene (WA-01) who is also the chair of the DCCC. We were also happy to see former Congressional candidate in NY-03, Robert Zimmerman who many of us campaigned for.
Thanks to everyone!
