We've been on the ground in WV for less than a week and have been able to get 18 petitioners hired, trained and working.
I need 30 more people by the end of the week.
I had been assured by the state employment agency that they would help hire local petitioners to fill the gap. That fell apart yesterday when they informed me that there was not much that they could do because of internal policies.
You've gotta love bureaucracy . . .
In order to make up the shortfall in manpower, I'm going to need to fly in more people immediately.
I'm going to make a big request that I need you to seriously consider. This is an "either/or" so please read and consider both options:
EITHER . . .
Visit the "Wild and Wonderful" state of West Virginia! If you're willing to petition in West Virginia and can take time out of our schedule until August 1st. I need you here by Friday.
It's beautiful country, with nice people, and you'll be supporting a great cause.
If you can take the time to come to West Virginia for the duration (August 1) and are comfortable asking strangers to sign a piece of paper, please contact me immediately by calling[masked]-6080.
OR YOU CAN . . .
Sponsor a petitioner to travel to West Virginia! If you cannot take the time out yourself, I completely understand, but you can still help in a very big way by sponsoring someone who can make this short-notice trip.
Each supporter that can petition for Barr/Root is going to cost at least $250 to travel plus about $50 a night at a not-so-luxurious hotel. Please make a donation and cover what you can.
A $50, $250 or even a contribution of $25 will help us cover these added expenses. Click here to donate.
Please give us a hand with this effort as there are only nine days left to get the job done.
THANK YOU for your continued support. We could not do this without you.
on Behalf of:
Shane Cory Deputy Campaign Manager Bob Barr 2008
