This past Thursday evening I attended the Grand Opening of Barack Obama‘s Campaign for Change Campaign Office here in Arapahoe County. There were well over 200 people in attendance, around 250 I would guess. The crowd was as diverse a crowd as I’ve ever seen, and there was electricity in the air. I met most of the staff, officially changed my registration to Democrat, and signed up to volunteer my time.
Saturday I attended a Volunteer Leaders conference which also had several hundred people in attendance. We spent a little over 5 hours together training and organizing neighborhood teams with our campaign staff Field Organizers. We will be meeting regularly to conduct voter registration drives, as well as phone banking. I will probably end up as the Canvassing Coordinator or the Phone Banking Coordinator. I have experience with both, so we’ll see.
