Bernie Sanders Lorain County Office

Lorain County for Bernie Sanders consists of myself (Alan Pugh), Mary, Leesa, Celeste, Dale, Gayle, and dozens of other grassroots organizers working on a volunteer basis to support Bernie Sanders for president in 2016.

As momentum picks up in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, an organizing office in downtown Elyria would serve as a phone banking venue, organizing and training space, and recruitment center for grassroots volunteers for the Bernie Sanders campaign.

Much like the office in Lakewood, this office would be staffed daily by Bernie Sanders volunteers.  Regular events would be held to recruit and train new volunteers, coordinate canvassing efforts around the county, and provide a one-stop shop for local media and those seeking information on the candidate.

We are looking to gather funds for the first two months' rent and internet service.  Once the location is up and running, local fundraisers and volunteer contributions will sustain us through the November election.  We would like to open the office as soon as possible so that we can get to work!

Bernie Sanders is our candidate for a wide variety of reasons, from his efforts to get money out of politics to his views on investing in our people.  We pledge to do everything we can to deliver Lorain County to Bernie in both March and November.  Your contribution to this effort would be a contribution toward a better nation.  As Sanders often says, when we work together, there is nothing we cannot accomplish.

So not long after I posted yesterday, more donors came along and hit our goal! I was out of the house so I wasn't able to say it then, but THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed to this effort!

Yesterday, the carpets got a deep cleaning, and today we'll be moving in some tables and chairs and making a list of what we need to accomplish in the next week. We have a lot of work ahead of us, and we can't wait to get started. Thanks again, and be sure to come see us next Monday, February 15th at 5:00 PM for our grand opening!

I just added a couple of offline donations, both of them will be monthly. We're over halfway to our goal! With the primary season kicking off today, it's more important than ever to have our own space for phone banking, organizing, training, and as a meeting point for canvassing. Please consider chipping in a few bucks if you have it, so we can get this office open soon!

We're one-third there! Once we reach the halfway point, we'll start the wheels in motion by filling out the rental paperwork and contacting internet service providers. We want to be able to hit the ground running, and with your help, we are almost ready!

Thank you so much for your help thus far, and for continuing to SHARE and donate. It means so much to us, and only inspires us to work harder to elect Bernie.
