Takoma Park Celebrates Independence with the President’s Supporters!

Over fifty of Maryland’s Obama campaign volunteers met up at 8:30 in the morning on the Fourth of July, excited to talk to people who had gathered to watch and take part in Takoma Park’s Parade.

These organizers dedicated their morning to speaking with the President’s supporters, asking them whether they were “IN” to support the President in 2012. They spoke with a young couple who had just moved to the area and were excited to go canvassing with their three month-old son. They found supporters who had phonebanked for Obama in 2008 and were eager to do it again.

By the end of the day, the organizers had successfully recruited almost three hundred people who support the President for 2012. Seeing the sense of community and service that characterizes Takoma Park, the organizers felt the day was an extraordinary success.

We’d love to see you at our next event, so if you’re interested in volunteering please give us a call at 240 242 5750 or email us at [email protected]!
