Midnight Snack Time

I’m back from HQ and I must say phone banking is both frustrating and rewarding. Let me tell you some facts about Minnesota’s third congressional district:

1) Nobody is home.

Well, OK, that’s one fact, but a very solid one.

But seriously, Starting tomorrow and for ten days hence, Madia HQ has some super hot technology to make the phone calling more effective and efficient. If you’ve thought of putting in some volunteer time for Madia in the MN 3rd district, make contact with your contact and book a time!

Madia is a great guy, but he’s starting to get a bit spooky with this technology thing:

    Our senate candidate here in Oregon has set up a robo-dial system. I HATED it. The computer sets the pace and you can’t hear the person at the other end answer the phone, so there is an unnatural pause before you say hello.
    I tried it for a bit then said “Just give me a phone list.” They did.
    And few people are home to answer the phone on Sunday afternoon when the sun is shining.
