414_LogoRight after New Year’s, the GDCC is launching a new project to promote the values of the Democratic Party. We’ve got a great team that’s already working hard on this initiative. They need our support and hands-on help.

On Saturday, January 4, 2014, we kicked off a series of one-hour canvasses of Gloucester’s downtown wards.

The purpose of each canvass is to have a conversation with voters about the Democratic Party’s philosophy and hand-deliver our Democratic “accordion booklets” along with a handwritten postcard that reads: “Thank you for being a voter”.

Curtis Gollrad is master of the data sheets, turfs and maps. Catherine Bayliss, Bernadette Merenda and Helen Wiseman are producing the materials, assembling the packets and recruiting fellow canvassers.

We’ve given this campaign the name “414″ because we’re targeting 414 households in wards 2 and 3 – for Democratic victories in 2014.

We’ll meet up at Cape Ann Community Cinema (Main St., Gloucester) at 10 a.m.and return to the Fort Square Cafe on Commercial Street to drop off packets–optionally stick around for coffee and conversation–before moving on with the weekend.

Check your calendars for the first Saturdays of January 4…February 1…March 1…April 5…May 3…June 7.

Please let us know which dates you can help, so that we have materials prepared for you. By participating you’ll be strengthening the Democratic Party in the minds and hearts of Gloucester’s downtown voters.*

Please join us – reply to this message or call Bernadette (978-852-7165), Catherine (978-281-1389), or Helen (978-325-2673) for more information and to sign up.

Democratically yours,
