Jackie and Harry of Grosse Pointe Farms have two love stories to tell. One is about their marriage. The other is about their shared passion for political activism.
They’re working together on the Obama 2012 campaign, just as they did in 2008 — and on countless campaigns before that. But this one is different.
Jackie, a data captain at the Grosse Pointe Get Out the Vote staging location, was working as a Congressional aide when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law.
“That was one of the proudest moments of my life. I don’t want to see all the good President Obama has done be undone. He needs four more years to do even more — and so people can see the results of what he’s accomplished and what it means to our country.”
Harry, who is assistant staging location director in Grosse Pointe, agrees. As he says, he and Jackie care about what happens in this country, from the local level on up.
“I tell people, ‘If you don’t vote, you can’t complain about the outcome.’ Volunteering and getting involved is the next step. We meet so many good people, and seeing them participating and stepping up to serve their community gives me optimism.”
If you share the passion of this dynamic duo, sign up to volunteer for Barack Obama between now and Election Day.
