Voter Outreach

I really enjoy going door to door. Yes, it's hot. Yes, I get tired with all that walking. But getting into people's villages and talking to them one on one about their concerns is a great experience. It should be mandatory for anyone working for a government agency so that they can get a better understanding of the people they are supposed to serve.

I've had several family members and supporters helping out over the last few days and they've all remarked on how going door to door has opened their eyes to a lot they didn't know about on Saipan. They'd never visited so many people's houses in their lives.

When I was a canvasser in Florida in 2004 my team would all come back to the office and trade stories from the day's door to door. I don't want to do that on this blog because I wouldn't want to embarrass anyone, but.....I'd better stop there.

Overall going door to door is a very positive experience. I think most people are appreciative of the candidates making the effort to come to their home.

We are going to continue our door to door efforts in Kagman tomorrow. If you'd like to help out, if even for only a few hours, your help would be greatly appreciated.

For weeks now I've been asking my supporters to contact 20 people they know who vote on Saipan and to ask them to vote Angelo for Mayor. If you haven't done so yet and would like my final campaign flyer, send me an email and I'll forward it to you. It is a double sided single sheet with English on one side and Chamorro on the other.

As of this writing the election is 33 hours away...

I think you swing a lot of votes by doing that.

Good luck tomorrow.
