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)
