Let me start by welcoming everyone to the Recall Mayor Dick Murphy
grassroots campaign. You are in the right place and we are glad that
you have joined us! Wow, one week later we have several hundred
volunteers. We are in the process of building several coalitions with
others who believe that we must act quickly to save San Diego. As I
have stated previously, our main objective is to Recall San Diego
Mayor Dick Murphy. Our group is composed of Republicans, Democrats,
Independents, and Reformist who believe that Dick Murphy should do the
honorable thing and resign or face recall. We are currently in the
beginning stages of the recall. Once we have successfully recalled
Mayor Murphy, we suspect this group will split/diverge and individuals
will support her/his respective candidate for mayor. That being said,
we discourage premature campaigning. We must work in unison if we are
to succeed. Signatures can not be collected until the recall
officially begins which is after June 9th of 2005. As the date draws
near we will keep you posted on the exact start date for collecting
signatures. This must be a legally coordinated effort if we are to

**Rally to Recall the Mayor on May 1, 2005 12:00 p.m. on Park Blvd.**
Please make Recall signs and keep them clean. (Children will be
present). Don't forget your suntan lotion, water, and a hat to keep
the sun out of your eyes. More information will follow. Please start
thinking about making your creative sign at your earliest convenience.

This is a grassroots campaign. Please contact your friends, churches,
groups, and communities. Talk to them about Mayor Dick Murphy's continual failed leadership and encourage them to join the recall effort. Remember to speak factually! Here are a few categories that are unprotected by the first amendment which you should avoid at all times: slander, libel, fighting words, incitement, and obscenities. You can find talking points from the Union Tribune Articles or other Media sources below. If you use them, reference them. Example: According to the Union Tribune Dick Murphy . . . etc.
