We are a grassroots organization -- you are central to our vision and our work, and that is why you get to decide who we endorse. Instead of a small committee of people making political calculations and backroom deals, we go directly to our sustaining members, engaged, active, progressives and ask YOU to make the call.
After studying our questionnaires, going to forums, meeting candidates and asking tough questions, we asked you -- our members -- who you wanted to endorse for Governor.
And you overwhelmingly voted to endorse Don Berwick.
Don Berwick surpassed the 60% threshold to receive the endorsement, receiving over 70% of the vote. In a contest with four other candidates seeking endorsement, this is a remarkable achievement, and illustrates how Berwick has the power to reach and inspire voters.
We know that right now is the time to use grassroots organizing to influence the debate. While citizens like you have been paying close attention, there are many of our friends and neighbors who are not thinking about a general election, let alone a primary.
Over the next months, we will be working with volunteer grassroots organizers to hold canvasses to start telling our communities about Berwick’s terrific, progressive platform. We know that an hour on one weekend in May is worth 10 or more volunteer hours on election day -- so please become part of the team.
