November meeting report

Celebrating a near clean Democratic sweep in the State, 1st and 9th CDs, and the 48th LD elections was the order of the day at our monthly meeting, which was rescheduled from the regular third Wednesday meeting date to avoid conflicting with Thanksgiving preparations on 11/21.

PCOs and campaign volunteers shared a number of good ideas for tweaking coordinated campaigns, signage, and tips for PCO canvassing in the future. Some ideas shared were a unified campaign brochure to prevent having to distribute numerous individual fliers, and developing a bank of interpreters of various languages.

Tips for PCO canvassing included carrying stamps for those who use that as an excuse for not mailing a ballot and keeping the address of nearest ballot drop boxes near the phone when calling.  Our doorbell hanger was well-received.  Doorbellers reported an unusually positive response this election.

If you were unable to attend but have ideas to share about future campaign improvements, please reply to 48thdems@gmail.com Subject line: Campaign feedback and your ideas will be retained for future reference.
