You are familiar with canvassing to try to persuade undecided voters or getting out the vote.  In those campaign times, we are trying to be efficient, to reach as many people as possible.  However, when we are not in the throes of a campaign, we can be doing "deep" canvassing, where we try to engage people in conversation, and we listen more than we talk, trying to hear what their key issues are.  We do this to meet people, to break their feelings of isolation as local Democrats, to offer chances to be involved, and, most of all, to start building the fabric of our connection and our community.  Because this is for the long haul, we need to do this in a way that is sustainable for us, knowing we can't usually keep up the pace of GOTV.  Also, the point is to build connections and friendships, so that the more people canvassing in a precinct, the better.

  Democratic Central Committee people are supposed to reach out to the Democrats in their precincts, but lots don't get this done.   They need a way to get over the obstacles stopping them, so I am looking for people who have canvassed who would be willing to help newbies, at least for a time or two.  Would you be willing?  We will be holding a meeting at the Democratic Headquarters, Tues. March 20, 7-8:30pm, where I want to introduce the idea, but also try to help people buddy up.

  Also, if you are interested, you can still run to be on the Central Committee as a write-in candidate; the form is due to the Board of Elections by next Monday at 4 pm., and Wendy Stewart  ( is willing to meet you with the form.  You can check to see if someone is already on the ballot at  If you are uncertain of your precinct, you can check at
