Team Blue West in Goodyear is building a team that will work to win in 2012. At a recent meeting 22 people attended. Six of them were part of the core team that has been together for years now, but what is exciting is that the rest were "new" volunteers, and those that came back from the 08 campaign. We held our meeting at a locally owned restaurant, Dino's Greek & Italian Bistro.
There on the huge patio and under an Arizona sky, most folks enjoyed a meal. A week earlier we used a phone bank (a core campaign activity) to reconnect folks and energize the new people to attend and get involved. Here in person we got commitments from almost everyone. Then we went through the” I'm In program”, and how to have One on One discussions. This is one team already building for 2012!
