It's Homestretch Time Everyone -- Time to Crank It Up

We Could Have Two More Scalias on the Supreme Court

By Stan Shapiro

It’s clearer than ever that we’ve got a close election. Even in Pennsylvania, which many think is a lock for President Obama, some polls have shown it’s a two point race, and Senator Casey’s lead has been shrinking. If the President loses PA, it’s game over. If Casey loses, we can be sure Congress will be wall-to-wall Republican.

Neighborhood Networks is working through an innovative new alliance with the labor movement - called Workers’ Voice - to canvass undecided voters in our neighborhoods. Below you will find a list of those canvasses taking place in the next few weeks. But for some of you these Saturday canvasses are too far away or on inconvenient dates or times. So we’re also going to list some other ways for you to get involved in locking in Democratic votes.

First, here is the schedule of Workers’ Voice canvasses:

A) Oct 13: 9 am Sprinklerfitters 692; 14002 McNulty Rd (Northeast Philly)

B) Oct 13: 9 am Seafarers; 2604 S. 4th Street (South Philly)

C) Oct 20: 9 am Seafarers 2604 S. 4th Street (South Philly)

D) Oct 27: 9 am Sprinklerfitters 692; 14002 McNulty Rd (Northeast Philly)

E) Oct 27: 9 am Seafarers; 2604 S. 4th Street (South Philly)

F) Oct 27: 9 am Seafarers; 2604 S. 4th Street (South Philly)

Now here’s a list of Obama offices. Contact any of them for details on canvasses or phone banks, or just walk in to get the information you need:

A) 42 S. 15th Street 16th Floor

B) 322 W. Chelten Ave. 19144; 215-834-7125;

C) 7171 Ogontz Ave.;

D) 8120 Old York Rd. #4, Elkins Park;

E) 206 E. Girard Ave. #C;

F) 209 S. 52d Street;

G) 6841 Germantown Ave.;

H) 5601 Vine Street

I) 1825 E. Passyunk Ave.;

J) 5706 N. 5th Street

K) 9173 Roosevelt Blvd;

L) 4663 Paul Street;

M) 1737 South Street, Center City West

N) Center City West, organized by Steve Poses,

Other Ways to Help

You may also do phone-banking from home online through Workers’ Voice. Click this link to get started.

All of the above opportunities to help are explicitly partisan in nature, which we think is the best way to reach out at this time. However, If you’re interested in non-partisan get out the vote work, the Committee of Seventy is running a program seeking 1,000 volunteers. You can reach Seventy to help by contacting Bob Privedi at or 215-848-1283.

Also, there are special opportunities for lawyers, paralegals and law students to help assure everyone who is eligible gets to vote on election day. Send an email to if you’re interested in those programs.

Please help, everyone. This election is hanging in the balance and the stakes are enormous.
