Event: One last call for volunteers to help my campaign!

Dear supporters,

I am making one last call for volunteers to help my campaign.

I am looking for poll watchers to hand out literature at the polls on Tuesday.  The busiest
times are between 6:00 am and 10:00 am and again between 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

If anyone has time to volunteer on Election Day, please let me know.

Thanks,

Ricardo

Event: GOTV With Ricardo Fernandez This Weekend

Dear friends,

If anyone is looking for a chance to volunteer on my campaign, I need help
this weekend blitzing the neighborhood with the door knob hangers.

I have four days left before the election on Tuesday and still have a lot of door knob
hangers left to hang.  If anyone has time to grab a stack of hangers and help
me blitz the district, your assistance would be greatly appreciated.  It took me 5 hours of
actual walking time to hang 350 today in Evergreen Park and Orland Park.  

You do not have to speak with the residents or knock on any
doors
.  I just need someone to hang these on the door knobs.  They can't be
left in or on mailboxes.  

Please let me know if you are available to help out walking door to door for me, by clicking here.

Thank you,

Ricardo
