Turning PA Blue: Volunteer Opportunity Tomorrow

One of the longer-term projects that all Dems in PA have to focus on is getting the Stae back to where it should be: in the hand of Democrats. In a State where we have way more registered Democrats than Republicans, it makes no sense that we have a Republican House, a Republican Senate, and a Majority of Republican Congressman. Turning the PA House blue will help us immeasurably with much of this, because redistricting is just 4.5 years away.

As Anne Dicker said in an email:
With the Republicans in control of the state senate and house, Democratic Philadelphians are restricted in what they can do for the city: from preventing gun crime to regulating a fairer tax structure. Winning back our state legislature is the key to helping our city (not to mention the rest of the state)! And the deficit is only 11 members in the house.

To that end, I want to let everyone know about a really great volunteer opportunity for tomorrow: Linda Minger, candidate in a special election in the PA House, needs help with phone banking. Can you spare some time?

The details:
Junco & Grouse Bookstore
Sunday July 10th
6pm to 8 pm
716 S 4th St
Philadelphia, PA 19147

It is sponsored by the Young Democrats of PA. Check out more details here.

It will surely be a small turnout race, in a really small district. A few volunteers can make a really big difference.

Linda Minger is an articulate, well-qualified woman with deep roots in her community. She will be a positive addition to the House. I would urge anyone who is free to join in this worthwhile activity.

A victory here would be the second Democratic pick-up of a Republican seat since the November election. It would be a great aid to 2006 candidate recruitment, volunteer recruitment, and fundraising.
