The second shift had 15 intrepid callers. I don’t know how many calls were made – other than lots – but our easy clean pergo floors and quirky floor plan worked quite well.
If as much GOTV energy as I saw tonight was happening all over Massachusetts, then Martha Coakley WILL win.
A little after everyone left, I answered a phone call – a smarmy sounding, insinuating voice started to tell me I could make history and send a message to Washington by voting for Scott Brown. Whoever recorded that robo-call sounded like the voice for a cartoon villain…anyway, I simply hung up.
ME – I want to make history by sending Martha Coakley, who I believe to be honest, brave, and courageous – and incidentally, a woman – to Washington.
As I told those I called, my support for Martha Coakley is personal. I know her. Her raw courage in fighting for her staff when only Middlesex DA and asbestos was discovered in the court house at 40 Thorndike in Cambridge was inspiring – and the way she has always returned phone calls, answered e-mails, and even remembered my son’s name means a lot.
Besides, she has fought a true campaign to rein in abusive mortgage lenders and to hold Wall Street’s financial abusers accountable, something I wish I saw more of on the national level.
GO MARTHA!! NEXT STOP THE SENATE IN WASHINGTON, DC.
