Local involvement opportunities
There’s two opportunities to push our message out to the public — one this weekend, another that’s more flexible.
10 a.m. Saturday, May 7: Pasco’s Cinco De Mayo parade will feature local Democrats riding a float and featuring our Franklin County Democrats banner. This is your chance to see the people of the Tri-Cities, and for them to see you!
Meet Carl Baker in the parking lot behind Pasco City Hall. Be prepared for rain and wind, and carry snacks for you and yours. The float might not start moving until 11:30 a.m.
This weekend (and future weekends): Democrat Doug White’s campaign is in full swing. With our endorsement in hand, he’s visited Pasco several times and will be coming back for several more as we move into the primary election season.
White’s campaign manager has given us walking lists for doorknocking that we can pick up any time and complete with miniVAN, the Democratic doorknocking app you can download to your phone.
All you and your canvass partner have to do is pick a list, type it into miniVAN and off you go — your map, houses and script are all inside the app. I’m getting literature this weekend, so feel free to ask me for some and I’ll deliver.
Not sure about miniVAN? That’s OK! Here’s a handy video showing you the basics in fewer than eight minutes.
Each link below goes to a sheet with at least two list codes, and each list has between 50 and 100 houses. Pick one code, don your best smile, then go for it!
- This set features the Lucas Park area near I-182, and the neighborhood between Pearl and Court streets off near 14th Avenue.
- Picking from this set will take you west of Pasco High School, or one of two neighborhoods south of Court Street and 20th Avenue.
- Finally, these two lists take you east of Robert Frost Elementary School, near Richardson Park.
Questions? Literature needs? Call or email me as needed. Let’s get Doug White over the top and into the general elections!
For democracy and the Union,
Acting chair Jake Dorsey
