The Pacific Coast Business Times Endorses Measure D

Oct. 20-26, 2006

Excerpt from editorial:

“For one thing, passing Measure D requires a two-thirds vote and this time around there’s a very large group of no-growth voters who seems to have signed on to support the measure. Their opposition could block a future “D-Lite” vote. For another, passing Measure D now will put into play a large co-investment from federal funds…. For thirds, it will put the Highway 101 fix on track now, rather than waiting for a new ballot measure to be drafted and put to a vote.”

So, thank you Henry Dubroff!

Adventures in Phone Banking pt.2

This afternoon, I worked a shift at the Measure D phone bank. Our current digs at Egenolf’s law offices are very posh, and the training, provided by our handsome new coordinator, Ben, was as thorough as anyone could want. The people who actually picked up the phone were surprisingly nice. I think I actually persuaded a few. My most memorable call was to a woman named Mildred, whose age was listed as “02.” This turned out to be 102. She told me right away that she was completely deaf, but we had a nice chat anyway.
About half way through the shift, Alex Pujo stopped by and brought us some lemonade. This was greeted with great joy.
So even if you have just an hour to spare, come on down and help us out. It isn’t as hard as you might think.
Where: Egenolf Law Offices, 130 E. Carillo St. (corner of Santa Barbara Street) upstairs.
When: Monday thru Thursday, 5:30 to 8:30 PM, Sunday 3-7 PM.

See you there,
