LikeMike4Cobb 23 February 2020 Update
As the State Legislature resumes its session and members count down the
days to Sine Die sometime in late March or early April, it is a good time
to remind everyone that our campaign has a relatively clear field for
canvassing and other campaign activities until then. State legislators are
not allowed to fund raise or campaign until after Sine Die. When that
happens, pent-up campaigning will be released as candidates seeking
reelection flood your mail before early voting begins.
Because local officials are so far down the ballot, most people don’t know
who represents them on the Board of Commissioners or other offices. For
that reason, we are committed to our canvassing effort. It’s not only a
sign of respect but also allows them to put a face with a name on the
ballot. There is benefit to the personal touch when people vote.
The public can begin mailing in their absentee ballots on March 31st, (37
days from today) and in-person early voting begins on April 27th (64 days
from today). Almost 50% of people in Cobb vote early. Think about it; in
the next 75 days the outcome of our reelection campaign could be decided if
we don’t get out the vote and win the primary.
All the cold and wet days in January and February that volunteers supported
our campaign will bear fruit on May 19th (86 days from today).
I’d like you share that feeling that you made a difference by helping us
with our campaign. Volunteer opportunities are available on our web site.
Get involved. It is your voice.
