David Eby is thoughtfully opening his schedule up to Vancouver citizens who want to know what he's all about. As you may know he is running for Vision Vancouver, but must first win a nomination in the Vision primary on September 20th.
In short, he's inviting YOU to contact HIM so you will sign up with Vision Vancouver and help his nomination.
So, to get all partisan on yo ass, TheVancouverManifesto is asking you to sign up with Vision and nominate this kind fellow.
Just the fact that he is has been going TO the people in small groups shows that he is a politician that can uphold transparency and accessability.
David Eby is good people, read his call for supporters:
Dearest loyal blog readers, I'm asking you to invite me into your homes to meet your friends and families.
Here's what's going on. I'm in a rush to sign up as many members to Vision Vancouver as possible to help me make sure I win the Vision primary on September 20th and show up on the ballot in November. The deadline to sign people up for the primary is August 20th.
The best way that I've found to sign people up is to speak with small groups about the issues I care about, and to share with those groups why I think they should support me.
People have been hosting me and a small group of their friends (usually about 5, sometimes less, sometimes more) for brief, 1-2 hour coffees/after work drinks, to get a sense of who I am and what I'm about.
I'd love to come to your house, hear your concerns about the city, and make my best pitch. It's like Avon, but instead of being about makeup, it's about making our city better.
To invite me over to meet your friends and talk homelessness, affordable housing and anything else civic, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org . RECOMMEND this Post on Progressive Bloggers CLICK HERE!
