PHONE BANKING: Anyone who is available to help out with phone banking, please respond to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will connect you with all you need to get started. We need as many people as possible to join in the phone banking effort during these last days of the campaign, and this is something you can do from the comfort of your home! It is fun, its is easy, and it makes a HUGE difference!!!
CANVASSING: This can be either door to door in your neighborhood, outside of your local Board of Elections polling place, or (my personal favorite) right a main street or the commercial district of your town where you can stop in at the local diners, cafes, bakeries and taverns to greet voters, hand out flyers, and share the exciting news that they have a choice on the ballot:
A choice that truly represents the interests of the people of Ohio, that we stand for grassroots democracy with candidates that are not in the pockets of large corporate campaign donors,
A choice is represents a SUPERMAJORITY of Americans who seek an immediate transition to 100% CLEAN ENERGY and SINGLE PAYER, UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE
A choice to uphold COMMUNITY RIGHTS and BUILD THE WEALTH OF OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES, by restoring local government funds, alleviating property taxes, ending the squandering of our tax dollars on unaccountable privatization schemes, and providing STUDENT DEBT RELIEF.
A choice that ensures a LIVING WAGE for Ohio's workers and infrastructure investments that create EXPANSIVE NEW MARKET OPPORTUNITIES for Ohio's small and medium businesses (including opportunities in green energy and transportation manufacturing, local food, industrial hemp, housing cooperatives, etc.)
A choice to END MASS INCARCERATION and provide urgent, timely interventions and long term, community-based RECOVERY ASSISTANCE for people suffering from addiction.
A choice to afford a QUALITY PUBLIC EDUCATION and equal opportunities for every Ohio student from pre-K through college, increasing the state's allocation of school funding, ending the school to prison pipeline, expanding school choice, decentralizing school administration, and strengthening connections between school and community.
When canvassing, please make sure to remind voters to check out our campaign website at www.constanceforhio.org
On behalf of Constance and myself, it has been an honor to run as your 2018 candidates for governor and lieutenant governor.
