As many of you know a small, but profoundly dedicated and hardworking group of Dems have been out canvassing for 6 out of the last 7 weekends. We have knocked on doors, had meaningful conversations and gathered information which will help elect Leslie Cockburn and Jennifer Lewis, as well as Tim Kaine. We must reach out and motivate Dems to vote, talk with independents and yes, the reasonable Republicans who are disappointed with their party.

The Coordinated Campaign, working closely with  the Cockburn campaign, has identified ELEVEN HUNDRED DOORS TO KNOCK BY OCTOBER 1st. That is a heavy lift for the small group that has been canvassing thus far.
Tim, Leslie and Jennifer need your volunteer service and they need it now, in the next 21 days. Please contact me so I don’t have to call YOU!  

Canvassing training is always available and you will be paired with with an experienced canvasser. It is a combination of walking and driving. One person usually drives, while the other navigates. Bring water and comfortable walking shoes. Sunscreen, hats and umbrellas are useful depending on the weather. We’ll provide energy bars!

We are canvassing during daylight hours weekdays, early evenings 6-8 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursday, Saturdays 10-1 and 2-5 and Sundays 2-5. Most Sundays we will canvass in the 6th district, meeting in Forest to start our efforts. Let me know when you are available to help. Email me: or call me 540-586-6319 to volunteer.

Believe me, I know that I am asking a great deal of you. I  do not want to wake up on Nov 7 with any regrets, wishing I had done more to help. If we want Jennifer Lewis and Leslie Cockburn to win we need to make it happen. They will not succeed without our efforts. Let’s lift them up all the way to Washington.

Thank you.

Democracy is not a Spectator Sport. Get in the Game.
