Today dozens of volunteers took to the doors of Jefferson County to get the word out about our leaders and plan on how to improve things in the North Country. From Adams to Alex Bay and Brownville to Wilna our volunteers did us proud.
The day started with a labor rally at CSEA headquarters in Watertown for Congressman Bill Owens and Comptroller Tom DiNapoli.
The volunteer's hands were at the ready when the packets went out. Just after the bulk of the team took to the streets, I'm told that Congressman Bill Owens opponent stopped into the CSEA office to see what the commotion was about. We're thinking that Matt was not all that pleased to see all the red (made in America) "I support Bill Owens" shirts in the room.
The North Country Democrat also spotted Sheriff John Burns, Senator Aubertine and Assemblywoman Addie Russell volunteers dropping literature all over the City of Watertown, Brownville, Glenn park, Adams, Black River, and Wilna areas.
The reception was amazing and the volunteers were charged up by the reaction from the community.
The North Country Democrat would like to thank everyone that came out to help with the push. We want to especially thank all in Labor for spending the day with us. We had labor groups from across the region lending support. Groups such as CSEA, SEIU, CWA, Steel workers, Auto Workers, Brick layers and many more.
Don't forget everyone! Phone banks are up in the Jefferson County Democratic Head Quarters and phone calls are critical. The various campaign offices are in need of bodies and there will be a continued effort to take our message to every door in the region.
If you'd like to help knock doors or possibly make phone calls please get in touch with us. Every phone call made and every door knocked gets us one step closer to victory on November 2nd.
