The Ground Team reports that canvassers have knocked on over 1,700 doors since canvas kick-off day, May 20th. Our “Above and Beyond” winner this week is Max Walter.
Max canvassed a total of 215 houses in one day.
Tied for the “Initiative Award” are Gayleen Gorder and Mary Anne Cuenas for setting up their own pop-ups in their precincts. Good job, ladies.
More pop-up locations are in the works, such as weekdays at the Redding Library and weekends near Holiday Market in the Placer Heights Plaza.
Keep an eye on social media, the website and your weekly newsletter for more details.
At initial glance, technical errors on petitions seem very low, as do the number of people signing from districts other than District 1.
In approximately 500 conversations, 350 people showed support for the Recall and only 125 expressed opposition.
Your community is supporting this Recall nearly 3-1.
Canvassing was one of the subjects discussed at the Wednesday night Community Meeting at the Axiom Repertory Theatre.
Susanne spoke about training and education, covering the 'low-hanging fruit' strategy, providing more tips and tricks, and giving more opportunity for debriefing from the field.
The Communications Committee continues to manage the website and push out messages through the site as well as on Facebook.
We’re adding Instagram to our repertoire this week.
We recorded additional radio ads for continued airing on Q97 and are continuing to work with a local media firm to complete TV ads to be aired on local stations soon.
The Committee is working closely with the Fundraising Committee and the Ground Team to support their efforts.
The first week of petition signing was a roaring success and the Fundraising Committee is working to keep up the momentum.
We’re doing that by providing our Communications Team with the resources they need to purchase more advertising.
There’s an urgent need to get the word and you can help us now by hosting a small fundraiser in your home.
To make it easy, we rolled out our new “Home Fundraiser Tool Kit” at this week’s Community Meeting, Wednesday, May 24th.
The kit contains everything you’ll need to host an enjoyable, informative, and successful Recall gathering.
Please join the growing number of your fellow Recall supporters who are contributing to the cause by hosting a home fundraiser.
With your help, we will make this Recall a reality.
Just to clear something up…
The Committee to Recall Kevin Crye does NOT want Governor Newsom involved. We prefer to hold a free and fair election by District 1 voters in March 2024.
If all goes as planned, District 1 voters will be able to vote for a new supervisor without any involvement by the governor.
Our goal is to have the Recall on the ballot in the next election, slated for November 7th.
If we're successful with the Recall, there should be a chance for us to get the election for a new supervisor on the ballot for March 5, 2024, a regular election day.
It’s entirely possible to reach these goals with your help.
Below is a list of signature events for the next week:
Memorial Weekend Pop-Up Blitz: Thurs 5/25-Mon 5/29. 9:45a-6p each day:
Holiday Market -- Placer Heights Plaza
Grocery Outlet -- Sunset Marketplace
Safeway -- Cypress Point Shopping Center
Drive-thru -- California St. and Eureka Way
Redding Farmer’s Market, Sat. 5/27. 7:30a-noon
If you or someone you know is a District 1 voter, stop by any one of the above locations during the allotted times and sign the petition.
Together, we can restore stable governance to Shasta County.
