While most of my web posts focus on non-partisan local issues, I make no secret of my strong support for President Obama. I think that the President has confronted an exceptionally difficult set of challenges with intelligence and determination, and that his reelection this November is important to the future of our country.

In 2008, the Obama campaign assembled an unprecedented grassroots organization, with dedicated volunteers mobilized in communities all across the country. Now that the 2012 campaign is underway, it is important for the President’s supporters to get involved again.

If you are interested in assuming an active role here in New Rochelle, then please consider attending an organizational meeting this Saturday, January 7th at 10:00am at Trinity St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 311 Huguenot Street. You can learn more here.

If you can’t make the meeting, but are interested in learning more, than please get in touch with the New Rochelle leaders of the Obama campaign, Sharon Kaplan at shkaplan@aol.com or Pat Carter at pat26june@aol.com.
