On May 13th, Angela was up bright and early to be the first to officially file to be on August’s ballot!! We’re so excited to enter this phase of the campaign. In May we successfully connected with the public at Redmond’s Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, our Post Doc Filing Celebration, and helped to sponsor the Redmond Historical Society’s Annual Fundraiser. Now our focus will be on our door-to-door ‘doorbelling’ program. Here are some additional highlights of what’s new:
T-Shirts Available for Volunteers
Join Team Angela! — To help spread the word about Angela’s campaign for mayor, are now offering free, limited-edition Angela Birney for Mayor t-shirts and “I Know Angela” buttons to volunteers. To get one, all you need to do is promise to wear them around town. By simply walking around public events wearing your Angela gear you’re likely to start a conversation. There’s no pressure, simply be present and be yourself. Contact us to join the team.
Doorbelling Signups –Angela is now going door-to-door connecting with community members. She needs two people to go along with her during each doorbelling session. Specifically, she needs:
Drivers – Transport team between neighborhoods (you don’t even need to leave the car)
Doorbellers – Go door-to-door to find people at home for maximum efficiency
Signup Today! Please check back often, as dates and locations will be added.
Events — In the coming weeks, join Angela at:
- Redmond Saturday Market (Most Saturdays)
- July 12 & 13– Redmond Derby Days – plans are underway to make the most of Redmond’s biggest annual event.
Teen Campaign – In addition to supporting our events, our teens have been busy exploring and studying politics. The paper Political Participation of Asian Americans was recently published by Jack Li and is certainly worth reading. Please watch for a second paper next month.
Endorsements – This month, we are very proud to have gained the support of Redmond Firefighters; National Women’s Political Caucus of Washington State; Transportation for Washington; Bill Ramos, State Representative 5th LD; Lynne Robinson, Deputy Mayor of Bellevue; Bob Keller, Former Sammamish Mayor and Councilmember; and Craig Larson, Former Redmond Parks Director. Learn more, check out this impressive list.
Financial Support – We’re very grateful for the generosity of our community. Let’s keep up the donation momentum to win in the fall! We are also looking for House Party Hosts to broaden Angela’s support. Contact us if you’re interested in learning more.
