The weather hasn't been very cooperative this week. Just as it's time to collect signatures on my petitions, it rains.
Last night, though, proved otherwise and I had a great time meeting voters.
The best dialogue was with one gentleman:
Me: Would you please sign my petition?
He: Why should ?
Me: So there will be two people on the ballot.
Me: Having a choice is better than none.
He: Who is your opponent?
Me: Deb Mell.
He: Why didn't you say that in the first place? Of course, I'll sign.
We're also having some good success contacting local unions in our search for their endorsement. More information on that later. For now it is a matter of making contact as they won't endorse until the ballot is announced by the Board of Elections.
