Busansky Moves to Emphasize Grassroots

After a surprising fundraising quarter when she outraised her Republican opponent by $70,000, Democratic candidate for the 9th CD, Phyllis Busanky, is moving quickly to complement her impressive numbers with a strong ground game. Her latest e-mail to supporters, references the last quarter totals (and the comparison to her opponent's numbers), but rather than asking for checks, asks for volunteer time.

One of the hard and fast rules for recruiting is to always ask potential volunteers to participate in specific activities, rather than asking for a more nebulous commitment to "do something." Another rule is to always ask for people to participate at or by a specific time. By and large, this latest call to arms adheres to those principles. Below at the activities suggested in the e-mail.

  • Phonebank for Phyllis! Shifts available all days and evenings this week
  • Host a coffee or house party for Phyllis
  • Canvass door-to-door in New Port Richey on Saturday 7/22
  • Help with a mailing at Pasco Democratic HQ on Thursday 7/20 at 4 PM (4927 SR54, New Port Richey)
  • Stop by our campaign headquarters to see how you can help, and bring a friend!
  • If you cannot make it to either location, contact Emily about what opportunities are available to volunteer at home!

Phyllis is really rolling. Can you say - MOMENTUM?
When Mike planned his retirement and passing along his legacy seat, he never thought his boy Gus would face a tough challenge. Should be an interesting election season!
