These next two weeks are very, very important, for you, for Alaska Democrats running for office, for statewide campaigns (Mark Begich and Ethan Berkowitz), and for the future of the United States of America.
The picture at the top left, is of me, Nancy Lethcoe and Judy Youngquist, yesterday afternoon, at the Anchorage Obama headquarters. We were hand-writing and addressing post cards, to be sent out to targeted swing voters in swing states. This post card campaign is going on around the country, in hundreds of Obama offices, sending hundreds of thousands of hand-written messages to voters.
We found ourselves with a couple of extra hours on our hands, in Anchorage. Nancy suggested we go over to the Obama office, and pitch in for that amount of time. There were a lot of other volunteers there, very busy.
I was writing to people who, like me, hunt and fish, and strongly support the Second Amendment. Nancy did the same. Judy's message, as a retired teacher, was about the tie-ins between education, financial well-being, and our children's future.
Even though Nancy Lethcoe (you can donate or get in touch with Nancy here) is already working long hours every day, to unseat Valdez Corrupt Bastard Club charter member, GOP Rep. John Harris, she's been doing everything she can to support our other candidates and campaigns.
Get out there and volunteer, folks. Even if it is just a few minutes or a couple of hours. Believe me, there is plenty to do. And - it can be fun!
