Yup, we came out last week with our endorsement for Jamie Eldridge in the MA-05 congressional race, and now I’m putting my shoe-leather where my mouth is … or something. I’ll be in greater metro Acton on Saturday 9/1, working with über-volunteer and Eldridge campaign Vice-Chair Kate Donaghue — and we could use all the help we can get! You can volunteer anytime from 9am to 7pm that day: Show up at the Eldridge HQ, 136 Main Street in Acton, a 2 minute walk from the commuter rail station. I gather we’ll mostly be leafletting (but don’t ask to fly the plane yourself); also banging phones.
Here’s the schedule for the day:
9:30 to 10:00 AM: Refreshments and instructions.
10:00 AM: Hit the streets.
12:15 PM to 12:30 PM:Refreshments and instructions for second shift volunteers.
7:00 PM: Blue Mass Group Party at the Blue
Mass. Coyote Grille, 137 Main Street in Maynard. Sounds like a nifty place. Let’s get together and feel all right. UPDATE: Jamie says he’ll be there. Very cool.
For those coming via public transit from the Boston area to help out, the commuter rail schedule is as follows:
North Station 8:30/Porter Square 8:45 arrive South Acton at 9:28 AM
North Station 11:20/Porter Square 11:30 arrive South Acton at 12:13 PM
2:25pm, 3:20, 5:47, 6:10 and 10:20.
Hope to see you there!
