Mount Horeb Action Network
Our Mount Horeb Action Network met for its first meeting in the end of June. For months I had been thinking about how to create an Action Network in the area, but had had a hard time finding a lead volunteer to help set it up. Finally in mid June, when our finance staff member, Aaron Welo, joined the team, the stage was set. Aaron went to high school in Mount Horeb and wanted to help in whatever capacity he could to make things move in his home town. It was a perfect fit. Aaron worked on recruiting his connections and I worked on mine.
The two of us arrived at our first meeting at the Blue Sky Café (thank you Tim and Richard for being generous business owners). We had no idea what to expect, worried turnout would be small—but the room was filled. The first meeting was educational and we ended with mingling and pizza generously donated by the Blue Sky Café owners.
We had our second meeting this past Sunday. This meeting was smaller, but very productive. We had new recruits and dedicated volunteers. In an hour and a half we were able to identify several events to petition at, two house party hosts, and organizations to attend for speaking engagements. We also planned our first door to door canvass for July 30th from 11am-3:30pm.
I look forward growing of our Action Network in Mount Horeb. We have a fine group of people organizing different efforts to reach out to all voters in the area. Like always, you can email me to find out more or to join the network.
