After the concert, still tingling from clapping and singing so hard, we opened our Lorain headquarters with a community party. A huge number of volunteers signed up to cover Lorain County and we ran out of lawn signs! The motivated gathering was truly representative of Lorain. One after another, grassroots leaders representative of the entire community – African American, Latino, Christian, Muslim, youth, political and union leaders – pledged their support for Dennis and rallied the crowd.
There is a high level of enthusiasm for Dennis and people are now beginning to see March 6 as a day of consequence for their community. So many people came up to me telling tales of how they have followed Dennis’ career and have always wanted to be able to vote for him to be their representative, and with glowing smiles shared, “And now we can!” Others shared stories of how Dennis has already helped them and their families over his lifetime of service.
It is wonderful to be part of such a dynamic campaign with a candidate who is so in touch with the real needs, joys and dreams of our community, and who is supported by them. Enormous thanks to our great campaign team and dedicated family of volunteers for making yesterday such a success, and to everyone around the country for your support of Dennis’ continued presence in Congress.
Even with this wonderful grassroots support, we still need the financial resources to win. Please spread the word in every way you can and share this link with your friends.
Onwards and upwards!
