Letter from the Chair
to All Our Lebanon County Democratic Committee Members
Thanks for the great turnout at the September 3rd County Meeting – remember to put the next one – October 15th on your calendar. Let’s keep that sense of urgency and action.
Only 7 weeks till the election!
LCDC is in shape for the effort organizationally. Intellectually we are more than ready to take on the disastrous record of Corbett and the mistaken policies of the Republicans in our State Legislature and the U. S. House. Financially, we still have limited resources, but we’ll make up for that in plain hard work and enthusiasm.
We have a strong slate of Democratic candidates in Lebanon County and a party firmly behind them:
Tom Wolf for Governor,
Mike Stack for Lt. Gov,
Manan Trivedi in the 6th Congressional District,
Pat Stephens in 101st State House District,
Jake Long in the 102nd State House District,
Gene Stilp in the 104th State House District.
Every one of us – every Democrat – needs to work for at least one of these candidates in addition to whatever other responsibilities we carry.
The best approach is, as always, personal contact with voters. The strength of our effort is in our committee people and volunteers who talk with voters.
Expand your impact in any number of ways, here are a few ideas:
Register voters in September
GOTV in October
Staff the LCDC office
Write letters to the editor
Be sure to attend the very special Jefferson & Jackson Dinner on Oct 17th
and participate in the many events we have scheduled between now and the election (see http://lebanondemocrats.com/eventcalendar/).
The dollars you contribute by being at the J&J Dinner or donating directly to LCDC for GOTV will help us provide information to voters, get people, material, and signs at more polling places than ever before, and position poll watchers and callers to help us reach out to get the maximum vote on election day.
The Wolf Campaign, according to Katie McGinty and FreshStartPA, is gearing up for a voter protection plan on election day. And, they’ll work with us on down-ballot races to find likely voters, get alternative ballots to handicapped voters over 65, target mailings, and highlight the issues.
I hope you are making it a habit to check the LCDC website:www.lebanondemocrats.com for actions and opportunities to volunteer.
