Still looking for gift certificates. Need 50/50 tickets. Doug may have some from last year. Campaign Updates – Polls are tightening. Rafferty and Vereb are confident, doing ok. Kampf vs. Drucker is a tight race. Jim suggested giving Vereb, Rafferty, Toomey and Meehan each $500 for their elections. Because Kampf has less resources and a tighter race he suggested giving him $1000. Corbett is not in need of extra. Jonathan Perrone motioned to give money to candidates, 2nd by Nancy McFarland. Approved. Independent Voter Outreach – Nancy and Chris volunteered to come up with additional literature etc. Sign Blitz – Important to get out signs, dems signs out already. Newsletter – Sent out one week ahead to include Independents. Mailed from MCRC will need volunteers from the committee to stuff/prepare literature. Jim will inform committee members about time.
LOOKING AHEAD 2011 election we will need two supervisors and five school board member candidates. OLD BUSINESS – Nothing NEW BUSINESS – Janice mentioned that Victory Center will send out paid post card. (Jim FYI – I talked with people at Victory Center yesterday and the only mailer they are planning on sending out now is one for Corbett and it is a post card) [JK note: Victory 2010 was offering to let committee members address & sign ‘remember to vote’ cards from the Corbett campaign, for which they’d pay the postage. Nice way for committee people to keep their names in front of their voters at no cost. Several committeepeople took advantage of the offer].
Motion to Adjourn â€“ made by Glenn Landis, 2nd by Marie Dotts, motion carried. Linda Tyson (Acting Secretary)
