I was thinking this morning about all of the things I have been doing to help elect our Fort Bend County candidates, and really, all Democratic candidates running for office this year. It makes me tired just thinking about it. All of it is pure grunt work that needs to be done in a campaign. But necessary, I think. So let me see if I can’t put a comprehensive list of things I did this past summer and fall. No, not to impress anyone, just an FYI. And if I leave anything out, please let me know.
Block walking – by my estimate, something around 800 “persuadable” doors knocked on.
Stuffing campaign literature into plastic bags
Door drops – hanging campaign literature on the front doors of houses
Envelope stuffing – preparing a mailer to a targeted population
Working a donor list – calling to raise funds for the Morrison ad.
Working a GOTV list – calling people to remind them to vote a straight democratic ticket.
Getting an absentee ballot application for Mary
Helping to set up a garage sale fundraiser
Data entry in the Texas VAN
Making suggestions for a future mailout
Making campaign contributions
Posting comments on FortBendNow
Putting lawn signs together
Erecting 4 X 4 and 4 X 6 campaign road signs
Manning a booth
Attending a candidate forum
Attending house parties
Attending dinner functions
Chauffeuring a nationally recognized democratic spokesman to the airport.
Blogging about it all. This entry makes number 115.
That’s it I think.
