No knocking, just drop off literature at Democratic doors. It’s fun! Call Jan (541-482-8249) for more information.
Write a Letter to the Editor
A Letter to the Editor is the easiest way for you to publicize what you like about a candidate. It is doubly encouraging to our hard-working candidates when they can read the appreciation of their supporters in their newspapers.
Tips: Stay positive, try not to mention the opposition by name, stay within the word limit, and write in as soon as possible. Here is email information for the two main newspapers:
Medford Mail Tribune ~ email@example.com: 150 words maximum
Ashland Daily Tidings ~ firstname.lastname@example.org: 150 words maximum
For questions about writing a Letter to the Editor or for proof-reading help, contact Gail Beason at 541-512-0699 or email@example.com.
