We have made great strides meeting as many voters as possible face-to-face, or by phone – but it’s impossible to reach everyone within the district by these means. Our television ads are meant to introduce voters to our campaign and LaVerne’s platform.
LaVerne and her campaign have been hard at work in these final remaining days prior to the election.
Whether it be at your doorstep, on the phone, via facebook, twitter, or on television; LaVerne has been everywhere, engaging with the community she is running to locally represent.
In total, LaVerne has canvassed 42 of our 50 precincts, personally meeting voters face-to-face at their door. This adds upto over 37,481 doors knocked by LaVerne and her campaign team!
On top of doors, LaVerne and her campaign have made over 2,800 calls to remind voters to cast their ballots before next Tuesday. Considering LaVerne is in the phone system business by profession, LaVerne is very proficient in utilizing this technology to keep voters informed.
If you would like to join LaVerne and her campaign in getting her message out, please email us and we’ll let you know what opportunities are available, whether it be door-to-door canvassing, phone-banking, or sign-waving.
The final week to return your ballot in order for it to count has arrived. Given we are in a non-presidential year, turnout is projected to be relatively low – this means every single vote will make a BIG difference.
In these final days, the usual mud-slinging has surfaced from our opponent. Her false attacks show that their campaign is desperate to diminish our grassroots-based community-oriented message of returning Spokane city council back to the basics of their mission statement – “To deliver efficient and effective services that facilitate economic opportunity and enhance quality of life.” This means Spokane should be focusing on the right things, such as public safety and long term private job creation. We fulfill this by building sustainable communities with a commitment to service.
