Phonebank Party for Baltimore's Clean Water Candidates
This year, residents of Baltimore City will vote for their next Mayor, Comptroller, and City Council. The leaders chosen in this unprecedented, delayed, vote-by-mail election will face enormous challenges that will shape people's lives and the city's future for decades to come, from Clean Water Action priorities like better assistance for people dealing with sewage backups and better protection for our drinking water sources, to the public health response to the coronavirus crisis, already exacerbated by the poor air quality and environmental racism that many Baltimore City residents have faced for decades. The next administration must show progressive leadership that can build on the past four years' success and reform city government to make it more transparent and accessible to the public.
Clean Water Action spent this winter learning about, speaking with, and evaluating the candidates running for local offices in 2020. Through questionnaires, interviews, and research, we worked to identify the candidates best suited to create the change Baltimore City needs to become a healthier, more sustainable city. Our endorsed candidates demonstrated that they can move this agenda forward: either through a track record of success and support for environmental legislation in elected office, or through significant prior experience in environmental issues and city government that will be necessary to solve the complicated challenges the city faces. These candidates were selected by our endorsement committee, which represents different view points and walks of life of people living in Baltimore City.
With two weeks to go until mail-in ballots are due, we have a critical window to make sure Clean Water Action members have access to their ballots and know who we've endorsed!
As normal campaign activities are suspended - especially the personal door-to-door outreach that Clean Water Action has always prioritized - many voters across the city are undecided, and it's harder than ever to get timely, accurate information. But you can help us fix that - without leaving your own home! - by joining a virtual phonebank party:
RSVP via the links above, and the morning of the party, I'll send you a videoconference link and all the materials you need! When we gather virtually at 5:30 that evening, we'll take a little time to chat about the election and practice what to say, then we'll all spend the evening together calling fellow Clean Water Action members to make sure they know how to vote during this unprecedented election.
