This was in coordination with the Democratic National Day of Action – this from the Ned Lamont campaign…
“Since launching his run for governor in January, Ned has been traveling across the state hearing from residents and business about how we can work to move our state forward. Momentum has been building to elect a leader with a vision and a plan to bring fundamental change to our state. Earning the support of more than 2,500 grassroots donors from more than 135 cities and towns is proof that our message is resonating with voters.
Saturday’s Day of Action will help us further build the grassroots effort needed to move Connecticut forward. Across the state, more than 400 volunteers will knock on 10,000 doors and make about 5,000 phone calls. In West Hartford, volunteers and supporters will knock on more than 400 doors. With the opening of the Ned for CT’s West Hartford headquarters, the campaign now has more than 20 statewide offices.”
