Thank you to everyone who attended (or tried to attend) Sunday's opening event. We had a strict fire code occupancy limits and we were delighted by the large turnout but very sorry we could not get everyone inside the rooms. Speakers included Jennifer Holdsworth, New Jersey State Director for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign; John Currie, New Jersey State Democratic Chair; Brian Hughes, Mercer County Executive; and U.S. Senator Cory Booker. Senator Booker energized the crowd and asked the attendees to commit to canvassing and phoning for Hillary Clinton.
You can come to the office Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from 4:30 pm to 9:00 pm to phone bank, and we have voter registration and turnout canvassing Saturday and Sunday in Philadelphia as well as voter registration locally. You can also come into the office every day to help make phone calls.
If you were not at the event this video recording of the speeches may help give you a sense of the energy. It was captured from the back of the room so we apologize for any lack of clarity.
Princeton University lots "10" off Williams Street are available after 5pm on weekdays and on weekends. Free two-hour parking is available within a 5 minute walk from the office on Wiggins and its off-streets.
