Community Action & Engagement: SERIOUS SCALE COMMITMENT TO MEET SERIOUS CHALLENGES

by Gary Lietke, District Leader for HD 44

It’s time to talk frankly within our committed Precinct Committee Persons (PCPs), so we can respond adequately to the dire political climate we face. It’s time to scale our programs and our personal participation to the scale of our challenges.

Make no mistake—if we MultDems don’t connect more effectively with our allied collaborative organizations and the full diversity of our registered Dem voters and NAVs, we’re in trouble. 

  • Please pore over the 10-minute November 2021 Community Action & Engagement report on YouTube:
  • It outlines our strategic plan to maximize both our effectiveness and efficiency. Its success is built on four lean teams: Collaborative Orgs, Action, Education, Outreach. Please study those four slides.
  • Next, we’re asking every PCP to submit the CA&E team leader-member recommendations form—multiple times! Staffing up these four teams is our immediate priority, so that they can start planning and doing.

Please nominate yourself. “Many hands make light(er) work” is our power. And fearlessly nominate others you think can help this effort.

The timeline for gearing up is urgent, if we hope to hold the line and advance our values for the 2022 primary and general elections. Merely dropping slate cards is hardly enough. We must do everything we can to facilitate OVERWHELMING DEMAND BY THE PEOPLE for the priorities outlined in the new Multhomah County Democrats Platform.

Reaching out to NAV Voters

We have 2 current MultDem actions as we gear up for the 2022 Midterms. 

#1. We are laying the groundwork now for a really strong voter turnout for OR Governor, the new 6th Congressional seat, and our local races, and we need an afternoon or two of voter registration starting now thru early Dec.  We have a targeted outreach to progressive-leaning Non-Affiliated Voters to invite them to re-register as Democrats so they can be part of the May Primary.

Sign up now to knock on doors of voters in your neighborhood Oct-Dec.   We will have all the materials and scripts.  It will be Covid safe and targeted to generally receptive voters.  Registering these voters now will really increase our turnout both in May and November. 

#2 You can also call voters. Also Oct-Dec. Sign up now.  We’ll email you the dates of scheduled phonebanks as they are set.

THANK YOU for your time.  Any questions, please call me, Georgann, 503-206-1664.  Sign up through the links above or respond via TC or email and let me know what you can do.  Again, many thanks!
