Pounding the Pavement

Today I hit the streets, knocking on doors and talking with folks about Texas State Representative Bill Zedler. We met at 8:30 in the morning, had a couple doughnuts, met with Rep. Zedler and his team and then hit the streets. We canvased one South Arlington Precinct today. Each small group of three or four was responsible for a neighborhood. We were working off of a list of Republican and Swing Voters so were not out to do a hard sell. We were adding a personal touch to Bill Zedler's campaign and were well received. This was a bit out of my comfort zone, but it became quite fun. Walking around and meeting new people, talking politics, and building a relationship with one of our representatives is a good way to spend a Saturday.

Getting people to the poles is always important, I feel that it is even more important for this election. Can you imagine the next four years if the Dems get the Presidency and a super majority in Congress? I hate to even contemplate that possibility, but have to acknowledge that it may happen if we do not get folks to the polls.

So go vote. Get your friends to the polls. Call a candidate that you can support and offer your help. We need your help.
