Steve is running the Marathon! We'll be lining the route to support him and raise our visibility in Bay Ridge. If you're coming to watch the race, stop by one of our tables between 8:30 and 10:00 (one will be on 3rd Avenue at 75th Street, and one on 5th Avenue at 86th Street) and pick up a sign to wave along the route. Once the runners pass by, we'll break up and keep canvassing in Brooklyn.

Why are you guys not out canvassing on the North Shore?

Why has NO ONE rang my Port Richmond doorbell?

Dude, if you've read what I've written, you'd know I'm no drooling Fossella fan... but your boy has run an ass-backward campaign.

I don't work for the campaign, so I can't really answer specific questions like this. However considering there may be upwards of 150,000 people voting I would find it hard to see a ground game that could hit everyone one of those residences.

Canvassing lists are typically made up of;

1. voters with the same party identification as the candidate (Dems for Harrison)

2. recurring voters

3. targeted areas (north shore will have high Harrison turn out, so they may be focusing elsewhere, not sure)
