Day 15 Of GOTV Campaign

The RV was all over the Erie area on Wednesday with leafleting at Erie County Courthouse in the morning, Burgers And Ballots down the road at Edinboro University in the afternoon and more leafleting at Erie Metro Transit Authority in the evening.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for leafleting in the morning and evening including AFSCME District Council 85 Director David Henderson, AFSCME District Council 85 Staff Representatives Shane Clark and Debbie Currie, AFSCME Council Representative Zollie Rayner, AFSCME member Ed Scurry and retired NALC member Roger Jenkins.

At Erie Metro Transit Authority, we were joined by members from AFSCME, NALC, SEIU, ATU, AFT and USW. Check out a few photos from those events below.

All of the aforementioned sisters and brothers were also at Burgers and Ballots at Edinboro University along with AFSCME District Council 85 Staff Representatives Julie Barnett and Randy Wilson, Lee Williams of APSCUF, Lisa Joyce of APSCUF, SEIU Central Labor Council President Mike Butler and APSCUF Edinboro University Chapter President Jean Jones. We were pleased to be joined by our union brother Greg Laird of Erie IAFF Local 293, who was visiting his daughter who attends school at Edinboro.

Everyone who participated was a huge help as always with cooking, preparing plates, handing out literature, and directing students toward the RV.
Most of the students we talked to at Edinboro are registered and ready to vote. A couple students took registration forms to be able to vote in future elections while others filled out absentee ballot applications, and some said they already voted! It was great to see young people fired up about the election, as well as so many APSCUF and AFSCME members. Check out some photos below of Edinboro faculty, staff and students on why they are voting.

Here are a few more photos from Burgers And Ballots at Edinboro.

Wednesday night, our next governor Tom Wolf joined Philadelphia AFL-CIO President Pat Eiding and PA AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Frank Snyder at Philadelphia AFL-CIO’s delegate meeting. Check out photos below.

The RV rolls on with more leafleting and Burgers And Ballots tomorrow. We will be at California University tomorrow, Thursday, October 23 at 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. outside of the Student Union Building.
