View From the Chair

I vividly recall the sickened feeling I had when I woke up on the morning of Wednesday, November 9th, 2016, to learn that Donald Trump was our President-elect. I’m sure you remember it, too.And I remember asking had I done enough? Could I have done more? What if…

I never want to feel that way again and so I’m asking myself those questions right now: Am I doing enough to elect our county and local candidates this year? Can I do more? I want to make certain I wake up on the morning of Wednesday, November 6th, 2019, and feel good about myself, no matter what the outcome.

So I hope you’re asking yourself these same questions.

The most important and effective thing you can do is canvass or make phone calls. This is our greatest need from now through Election Day.

If you are not comfortable talking with voters, we need people who will accompany and/or drive canvassers, and leave literature at voters’ homes.

You can recruit your friends, neighbors and family members to volunteer with us by forwarding this email to them.

You can volunteer for any of these activities just by replying to this email and we’ll connect you with the campaign team in your precinct.

It might shock you to hear me say that your time is worth more to our candidates at this point in the campaign than your donations…but it is. Having said that, though, let me add that your contributions are greatly appreciated, will help cover our headquarter’s printing and mailing expenses, and will put us in better shape to launch next year’s do-or-die campaign in January.

You can donate using this link:

Thank you so much for everything you do…and everything you will do between now and November 5th.

Let’s #FinishTheJob of turning Chester County Blue!
