Let’s be real.
The Fire Snyder campaign needs volunteers. Are you one of the people who would volunteer if you had time? You’ve thought about it but you just can’t see how you can make the time? Kids, school, work, husband, wife, church, stuff, and oh just everything. I get it. But Fire Snyder needs your help.
If you would like to volunteer but you don’t think you can make enough time for it, we’d like to make it simple for you. So here are some relatively easy ways to support the Fire Snyder campaign, in two hours per week or less.
- Grab a ballot petition and ask 25 people for signatures. You don’t have to get 25 signatures, just commit to asking for them. Depending on where you do this, you could spend anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours finding 25 people to ask. If this is unrealistic where you live, then pick another number that works for your situation.
- Write letters to the editor. Choose two newspapers and write unique letters to each, explaining why you support the recall. Pick one issue, stay on your message, and offer each newspaper a letter written just for them. Write in your own voice. This gets easier with practice.
- Collect stories. Almost everyone around you has had experience with public education, pensions, unemployment, food stamps, labor unions, our first responders, or some other piece of America that Rick Snyder is attacking. Get those people to talk to you and tell you their stories. Then use those stories to tell the human side of Snyder’s policies on a personal blog or podcast.
- Investigative blogging. Investigative blogging can be simple and straightforward using readily accessible evidence. Did Rick break a campaign promise? Did he take a hypocritical stand? Was he untruthful about something he’s done? This type of information can be researched quite easily online. Just one quality post per week can help the public understand why Snyder’s got to go.
- Recruit 2-3 of your friends to recall Rick in 2 hours or less. Coordinate your efforts and have fun with it.
Even if you’re swamped with work and bone-sucking broke, there’s room for you in the Fire Snyder campaign.
