This Election Depends on You
Young Philly Politics-
I started my campaign on December 11th by traveling throughout the city of Philadelphia with the message of hope and opportunity for all of us by working together to build a safer Philadelphia, block by block.
Now we are down to two weeks before we decide who the Democratic nominee for mayor of Philadelphia will be, and I believe now, just as I did then, that I will be the nominee if I have your help and your support in getting my message out to all the residents of Philadelphia.
In the next two weeks my campaign will need a lot of election workers to knock on doors, drive people to the polls, make phone calls, and be poll watchers to make sure we have a fair and inclusive election on May 15th. For those of you that support me here on Young Philly Politics, I hope that you will take the time to visit www.evansformayor.com/volunteer to sign up and help my campaign get out the vote on and before Election Day.
Like most Philadelphians, I know that many of you here on Young Philly Politics, like Alex and Dan Urevick-Ackelsberg, are still undecided about which mayoral candidate to vote for and that others here may be leaning toward me or perhaps another candidate. I would also like to say how much I appreciate how carefully you all have debated and examined the different candidates here; your passion for politics and public service is really what a democracy should be all about.
My campaign has always been about people—and this election is going to be determined by residents in this city like you. With only 14 days to go, the most popular candidate -- if you believe the polls -- is still “undecided,” so anything can happen between now and the 15th.
I hope that by reaching out to the people through my transit stops, meet and greets, forums, debates, my postings here on Young Philly Politics, and my live video webchats that you and the rest of the “undecideds” out there will support my campaign.
On Wednesday, May 2nd at 7pm I will be hosting a live video webchat with special guest moderator Wendell Young IV, President of the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1776, to take your questions on job creation, education, public safety, or any number of topics that you want to discuss.
Thank you again for your consideration, and I’ll see you on the chat!
P.S. My final webchat before Election Day will be on Wednesday, May 9th at 7pm.
P.P.S. If you cannot make tomorrow’s webchat and have a question for me, please leave your question in the comments section of this thread and we will try to answer it on the webchat.
