Due to temperatures predicted for below freezing, the Committeewoman is making an executive decision to cancel Saturday’s door-to-door Voter Registration Drive in LaSalle Park Neighborhood.
We had a fantastic, diverse crew of ward members, Firefighters from Local 73, and other volunteers coordinated for Saturday. I hate losing that opportunity. But I am not going to ask firefighters, who are accustomed to brutal conditions, to register voters when I will not allow my own members to do so because of weather conditions.
We will plan on registering voters the following Saturday, January 17th, and Monday, January 19th (Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday). Hopefully, it will be warmer, sunnier, and less windy.
We will do lit drops in February regardless of temperatures. Lit drops are constant movement. I’m OK with us walking around when it’s below freezing. If you can walk the dog, you can deliver door hangers. It’s the standing outside doors in frigid conditions that I have safety concerns about.
Thanks to everyone who offered to help this weekend. Stay warm and healthy!
