I’ve heard from thousands of District 19 residents so far. I have gone through three pairs of shoes, thousands of pieces of literature, and I’ve sustained two dog bites.
The other day while walking in Silver Spring I came across a loose dog. He was a very friendly, older black lab. I attempted to call the name on his collar but no luck. I hung around for a little while and finally the owner who was a ways down the street was yelling for her dog. I yelled back that he was over by me and I was able to reunite the two. I was very happy I could help.
While talking to residents, the same concern has come up over and over as in my first post about door knocking; healthcare is a major concern for people.
I have also learned so much over the course of this campaign. Everyone has knowledge and stories. Everyday I learn something new about the system and how it’s sometimes failing people. I’ve knocked on thousands of doors and I still get, “Wow, you’re the first candidate who has come to my door!” It’s a good feeling, however, one would think with eight people running on the Democratic side in this race for three seats, we would have knocked the entire district (discounting areas of which you cannot knock) by now.
I’m also offering free yard signs to almost everyone I meet. If you would like one, please contact me and I’ll be happy to drop one by for you.
I’m glad to have the opportunity to talk to people. If I haven’t knocked on your door yet, I hope to knock it soon!
