HELP! Time to Elect Dems!

Weston Dems We are Down to The Wire!

What ever you can do to help, even if you can only spend an hour or two between now and the election will really help.  NOW IS THE TIME!

Martha is the right choice for Governor, and we must step up and make sure she & the whole Democratic ticket are victorious. We can do it by making sure turnout is high in Waltham (Waltham’s turnout is KEY!).

There are immediate opportunities to influence the outcome of this election.

Any help you can give will be appreciated.  We have a schedule of three hour shifts which will maximize effectiveness.  If your availability varies from this schedule, let us know!  We will train as needed.  You can even make calls from the comfort of your own home. 

The 3rd Middlesex Area Democrats Coordinated Campaign office is at 689 Main Street, Waltham, and all campaign activities launch from there.  Here is a complete schedule of our events with links you can use to RSVP!

But wait, there’s more!

It’s time to get moving!

    30 days left!

We need your help! After all the elections, primaries, conventions, and candidates it has come down to the last month. Now is the time for all good citizens and democrats to make the final efforts to make sure that politics in the Commonwealth don’t slip over to the dark side.

Please do whatever you can to support the coordinated campaign during this final push. Ed Markey, Katherine Clark, Martha Coakley, Steve Kerrigan, Maura Healey, Deb Goldberg, Suzanne Bump, Mike Barrett, Alice Peisch all deserve our support now. Please do anything you can to support the coordinated campaign. We set up a coordinated campaign office in Waltham (689 Main Street), only a few doors from Cafe on the Common, to focus the efforts of our entire state senate district.

If you are willing to go out and canvass that is great! If you can help us wave signs and generate visibility, great. If you can help out at the front desk for a few hours, that’s terrific. If you are willing to participate in a phone bank, that is terrific.If you can help us write press releases and generate publicity, marvelous. If you can offer financial support <DONATE> wonderful! If you can do all, or some of these things, we stand a good chance in the November election (4 weeks from now).

Saturday, October 11th, we are making a special PUSH! Please HELP us in Waltham at the field office on Saturday. We will be holding a canvass from 11 to 2, and Third MAD invites you to a Rally at Cafe on the Common (677 Main St, Waltham) from 3 to 4:30 pm, with lots of candidates and luminaries.

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you Saturday!

Breakfast Meeting This Saturday @9 am to Get Organized

There will be a breakfast meeting of Weston Dems at 9 am this Saturday, at 460 Conant Road!

We have lots to discuss and decide.  The Democratic Convention was held in Worcester on June 13th, primary candidates were selected and many of us campaigned for various candidates in the primary, and the primary election was held on September 9th.Now we have a strong slate up and down the ticket of Democrats in the General election, on November 4th. Now, Weston Dems need to get organized to elect Democrats!
This is our chance for Weston Democrats to make our voices heard to Get Out the Vote to Support:
Senator Ed Markey, Congresswoman Katherine Clark
Martha Coakley – Governor, Steve Kerrigan – Lt. Gov., Deb Goldberg – Treasurer, Maura Healey – Attorney General
Suzanne Bump for Auditor, Bill Galvin for Secretary of State
and our own MA Senator Mike Barrett, our own MA Representative Alice Peisch, and so on up and down the ticket.
[A remarkable ticket of talented and almost all Women candidates running this time!]
Ed Markey, Tom Conroy, Mike Barrett, Tom Larkin and Bob Logan spoke at our Grand Opening / Open House last Saturday in Waltham.

Between now and Nov. 4th is GO TIME! 

THERE ARE LOTS OF WAYS YOU CAN HELP NOW!   I hope many Weston Dems will join me in donating to 3rdMAD and staffing the Coordinated Campaign Field Office at 689 Main Street in Waltham!  You can also donate to WestonDems to support our efforts in Weston. There are lots of important ways for Weston Dems to get involved, by volunteering to make calls, canvass for candidates, help staff the field office, donating funds, and many other ways.

Let’s meet Saturday morning to discuss how we can mobilize for the Nov. 4th elections. Democrats win elections when we grassroots organize!

Please RSVP to this message to let  Alan Orth know how much breakfast to prepare for 9 am this Saturday, at 460 Conant Road.
