That's me, Angela, and OFA supporter Kim K.!
New Hampshire staff, summer organizers and volunteers are beginning to assemble across the state this summer, to expand our “I’m In” program. I have been working in Merrimack for a few weeks and have been thrilled to connect with such inspiring and enthusiastic volunteers! We all met at a an OFA Grassroots Planning Session last week to figure out how we can go about contacting our strongest supporters to build the campaign– that will not only help for 2012, but also help to move New Hampshire forward. Attendees had the opportunity to hear the preliminary campaign plans, strategize for the 2012 campaign, sign “I’m In” cards, and express why they were personally supporting President Obama. During an open floor discussion people were enthusiastic about starting upcoming community events.
Supporters like Kim K said “I'm committed. I'll give as much time as I can!” Then there was Jack R who said “I’m excited because we're getting things started so early.” Joann Y. shared his sentiment adding, “I feel like there is hope and I'm excited about it.” At the end of meeting, 2008 campaign volunteers and new supporters agreed to host a Merrimack neighborhood phone bank to recruit new Merrimack volunteers for our upcoming activities. We will be making calls tonight from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm – come join us!
