That’s right. Gary, Charlotte and I went for our first precinct walk this weekend together in Aliso Viejo, California. Oh man, not a good weekend to start, it was very hot and we waited until early evening to grab walking shoes and knock on doors in our very own neighborhood. Why not start where we live? Our community is in the heart of the 33rd State Senate district.
This will be our cheapest and best way to get the word out about Gary’s campaign and for now we are knocking on all the doors. Republicans, Declined to States and Democrats. We’ve found Republicans to be very receptive to meeting the candidate, especially when it’s quite doubtful that the Republican candidate will do any walking at all.
And this is the best lesson we learned, talking to people is the best way to get them to vote for you. And we even found some lovely Democratic neighbors who want to donate and volunteer. What more can a grassroots campaign ask for?
