I received this today, by email:
I've never written you before but I wanted to talk to you about the urgent need for volunteers in the battleground states and why your efforts are so important -- especially in these final, fast-paced and important days.
As the Democratic Party's national field director, it's my job to make sure we win this election on the ground. A big part of my work is to create and to implement the organizing strategy needed to win.
Another part of my job is to make sure the organizers in towns and cities where the election will be closest have the necessary resources.
Those resources come down to two things: people and money. Organizing is about putting people and money together in a way that creates power for a positive change.
You've helped us put together a field operation that is reaching out to voters. Now, I want you to see firsthand what you've helped us build by showing up to volunteer.
So here is what I'm asking you to do: get involved this weekend at the location listed below, bring a friend (or friends), and stay involved for these last days of the election.
Event: St Louis County Canvass
Meet at: 3234 Laclede Station Rd Maplewood, MO 63143
When: Saturday, October 23 at 09:30 AM
I've been through some really close elections and I believe that the hard work and commitment of our volunteers is a huge advantage. Everything you do will make a difference and together we can win.
