Door-knocking with Rep Youakim

Hello SD46 DFLers!

There is less than 7 weeks left before election day and many doors still need to be knocked! I would LOVE a door-knocking partner to hit the doors for Laurie Pryor in 48A and Ginny Kleavorn in 44A. They are two great House candidates that need our help!! I will be going out every Wednesday night at 5 p.m. from now until election day to knock for these fantastic ladies and would love to have you join me.

If you are new to door-knocking, the best way to learn is in the field on the doors. If you are a veteran, I am sure you can come out with me at least once before Nov. 8. We need to keep 48A in DFL hands and have a good chance to put 44A into DFL hands but it will take hard work! Please let me know what Wednesday night you would like to join me.

If you would feel more comfortable knocking in SD46, Peggy and I would be happy to have you come out with either of us. Just shoot us an e-mail or give us a call.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Cheryl Youakim
