If you haven’t visited the Santa Cruz County Fair in several years, this is an opportunity for you. The Democratic Central Committee has, as always, requested a booth in the big tent and now we need Democrats to take a two-hour shift during the run of the fair, Tuesday, September 15th thru Sunday, September 20. The booth will be open from noon to 11:00 pm every day.

If you volunteer, you will be asked to meet and greet the public for only two hours per shift any day of the Fair. You will be joined in the booth by one or more fellow Democrats. During your shift you will ask passersby if they are registered to vote, if not you can register them. Or perhaps they want to buy a Tee shirt or button which are tastefully displayed. Also there will be freebies to hand out to the children. You might be asked when the next elections are. You will have all of the information you need to run the booth. The 2010 election looms like the giant elephant in the room. All of our hard work must not be lost because the party became complacent.

The rewards are great: you get a parking pass, a ticket to the fair and the good feeling that comes when you know you have contributed to the cause. You will have plenty of happy people to talk to and you might even convince a GOP member to switch party affiliation.

You can sign up for a shift on the web page of the Democratic Central Committee, to get information on what help is needed. Don’t miss out. This is great fun and you will be participating in THE cause. We can’t lose now to the negative guys.
