To San Diego DFA & PDA Metro Members:
San Diego Progressives and the Progressive Caucus of the California Democratic Party (CDP) need our help.
As you know , the Mayoral special election will be in just a couple weeks to replace San Diego’s first Progressive-Democratic Mayor in over 20 years. Bob Filner became a bad joke nationally and resigned in disgrace.
David Alvarez is a young, Progressive Democrat and would be the first Latino Mayor in San Diego’s history!
The conventional wisdom is that if David does not win against the Corporatist-Republican, Kevin Faulconer, in the February 11 special election, it could be another 20 years before San Diego sees another Progressive mayor.
As it is, depending on what poll you look at David is either neck and neck with Faulconer or David is behind by over 10%.
San Diego needs our help and we can help by making calls to potential voters to encourage them to mail in their ballots are go to the polls and vote for the Progressive Democrat.
The CDP has set up a virtual phone bank we can use.
If a large amount of calls are made on behalf of the CDP Progressive Caucus, they will get recognized at the 2014 California Democratic Convention and the 5000 attendees will be encouraged to join the Progressive movement, including the Caucus, the PDA, and DFA. That gives us double incentive to make calls.
Making calls is simple and quick. Here is what worked for me.
If the person asked for more details I directed them to the Alvarez website at: www.alvarezformayor.com , but If they asked, I told them…
Who would you rather vote for as our next mayor?
Each call took about 30 seconds. It is possible to make[masked] or more calls in an hour or two. I’ve started calling for about an hour each day.
PLEASE, please do some calling starting this week, both weekdays and weekends through to the February 11 election.
