What is working well? (Part 2)

(To add a comment, please visit this article on NextDoor.)

This is going to be a respectful campaign, free of personal attacks.

In yesterday’s post on NextDoor we asked residents (and especially the current town supervisor’s supporters) what’s working so that we don’t fix things that aren’t broken.

There weren’t many supporters of the current town supervisor who responded there, so I wanted to link to that post again to keep that discussion active. If you like Paul, I’d love to hear from you!

Yesterday was Day 1 for gathering signatures on our petition. Our approach to this campaign (similar to my approach to governing) is to empower, empower, and empower the residents. It simply isn’t possible for me to personally gather the 1,500 signatures alone, so the strategy we are implementing requires that I empower residents so that they are informed and can decide whether or not they would like to download the petition and ask their neighbors to sign. If interested, you can join the team here: https://www.greenburgh.us

I am learning many lessons about this process; I will share them here so that other folks who (just like me) never thought about running might one day consider running for a local office. If you’d like to see the script, frequently asked questions, and tips for approaching people to sign a petition, here’s the actual help sheet that our volunteers are using. Have a suggestion to improve that script? You can add a comment there by selecting text and clicking the plus icon on the right. We are smarter together, so please give it a try!

Also, NextDoor’s settings doesn’t allow me to reach Irvington and Tarrytown (because I’m in the southeast corner of Greenburgh), so please do share the message there if you are able to do so. Thank you!
