Our first post-Labor Day canvass will focus on communities in northern Door County. We need canvassers. We need drivers. We need snacks and bottles of water. There is no more later, folks. We have very little time to do what is necessary to make sure that Hillary Clinton is the next President of the United States, that she has a friendly Congress to work with, and that Lynn Utesch is representing our district in Madison. We’re all busy. We’re all tired. Door County presents its own unique challenges this time of year. I know all this, I really do. This is too important for any one of us to not do our part because we couldn’t be bothered. No matter your schedule, I can find something meaningful for you to do with this campaign. Sign up for next weekend’s canvass below or give me a call at 603-731-2959. Or click here to do an on-line registration.
