By Jack Steen and Levi Trestan, Field Organizers
Jack and Levi here from the field team. Although we’ve moved to a completely digital campaign, that hasn’t slowed us down! Our incredible volunteers and campaign staff have worked tirelessly to contact the residents of Norwood and Walpole, to not only let them know about our campaign, but to also check-in on our community during this uncertain time. Mike has also spent time writing to the residents of the 12th Norfolk District, and his efforts have been recognized throughout the community. Jack made a call the other day, and was happy to hear that a resident had received a letter from Mike, and was committed to voting after receiving a card in the mail.
Although we cannot meet voters in person, this was an important example of what small gestures like a letter or a phone call means to people. As a field team, although we aim to contact as many voters as we can, our first priority is to try and engage and foster meaningful connections with the residents of Mike’s district. It is extremely important that we not only speak about the change Mike and our team want to bring to the Norfolk 12th, but that we also act upon it, and have meaningful conversations so we can find out how to best serve the residents of the district.
We are still looking for more volunteers to join us in making phone calls, writing postcards, and to help us out with other socially-distant field tasks. Please use this link to sign up to volunteer with us: http://www.votedooley.com/get-involved.html. We are also in the process of creating a virtual “campaign office” on Facebook, so that all of our supporters and volunteers can stay in touch, and know about our latest campaign updates. If you're in the 12th Norfolk District, be on the lookout for a call!
