Help Nor Cal Activists in their Final Stretch: We Need Funding to go MEGA!Submitted by jaktober on Tue, 05/29/2012 - 20:32
UPDATE: The last few days have been awesome. We've been able to drive all over our district putting up signs, handing out material to individuals and businesses. We put together a hand-out for the local Liberty candidate and included that with our Super Brochures. We attended a Community Bank meeting last night. We met with another activist in Napa and got him going for the weekend (this was Saturday night).
Thanks so much for helping me take care of the costs this weekend. I was able to fuel the car, pay for printing of hand-outs, pay for food/coffee/beer (beer is essential for volunteers). Doug even put up a quick post:
Now these guys need to get home (after Today's sign waving and precincting).
Every gallon of gas ($5) helps: http://libertyroadwarrior.chipin.com/ron-paul-road-warriors-...
I've been back for about a month and half now (from my 7 month U.S. campaign) and am still spending a lot of time and energy looking for work and figuring out how to pay my bills.
This has meant not as much activism on my part. I have been attending a “Transition” group in Sonoma Valley the last two monthly meetings. I have been going door-to-door for Ron Paul and training a couple other activists in the area to do the same. I have spent a day walking precincts with a local County Supervisor campaign and am about to be hosting a couple activists from out of state for the last weekend leading to the CA Primary.
I spent about $5,000 of my own money on my recent campaign around the U.S. Liberty activists have been able to help me out with nearly $1,000 during my travels. Now that I'm back, and am a week away from the CA Primary (and will have a couple people helping; who have a car!!!) I'd like to see if the community feels like contributing one last time to help us end with a bang.
The potential of this weekend depends on funding. I have none now right.
There is a Napa County GOP HQ Grand Opening on Friday that I would like to go to.
Saturday we can train and canvas if we can get around and get folks out with the promise of lunch (or something to that degree). I have a potential Vallejo and Napa activist to get out, in addition to my Valley activist and my two out of state activists.
Sunday we can go out to San Francisco (and hopefully meet up with the John Dennis campaign), or campaign around the district in CD-5, if we have gas and food funds.
Monday I need to work (I have two days a week at a farm that I do for cash/barter), or get paid; after work I expect we will be out all night putting signs up around the area.
Tuesday I will be on TV, voting and organizing polling locations.
So, as always, I have a chip-in going for my website/work. Any funds would be appreciated.
The Cause is my Life, my Life is the Cause. All funds will go to both.
