Did you know that Syracuse is second only to Detroit in both the percentage of the total population living in poverty (38.2%), and the percentage of those under the age of 18 living in poverty (54.7%).  Something is obviously not working.  This year, please help us make change and make history by electing the first Greens to office in Syracuse in 2013!

Green Party Volunteer Memo - 7 Weeks to Election Day

HELLO AND WELCOME

Welcome to the first weekly Volunteer Memo for the 2013 Syracuse Green Party campaign season!  You're receiving this because you have either volunteered with us this season or you have signed-up to volunteer at an event, or through one of our campaign websites: Syracuse GreensHawkins for 4th District CouncilBott for Mayor, or Barbara for School Board.  The purpose of this weekly email is threefold:

1) To introduce myself as Volunteer Coordinator.  I've spoken with many of you previously, or at least left you messages; and have also spent time with you in the office or at an event, and I hope this relationship can continue to develop and lead to additional contacts for volunteers.

2) To share with you the opportunities and needs of our current campaigns and county committee, and to solicit your participation.  And to provide you with reminders about events where you can meet the candidates, other volunteers, and Green Party members.

3) To instigate, invigorate, and instill a sense of urgency to you about our need for volunteer help as we head into this prime electioneering time of year following the primaries.  Remember,  the Green Party is people powered, not corporate-agenda bought-and-paid-for.  That means we need volunteers as much as we need individual monetary contributions from our supporters.  That means we need you to give of your time.
