1. Hello Volunteers and Supporters of Aimee Allison for Oakland City

As we head into the final weeks of the campaign, now's when your help
is most critical. The campaign has built great momentum over the last
few weeks--a huge headquarters in a great location, a dedicated
campaign staff putting in long hours and an amazing group of
volunteers and supporters.

This weekend we have two special guests helping us out, as well as a
lot of returning volunteers and a bunch of new faces from the
neighborhoods and from around the Bay Area!

 **Saturday the 9th:

Walk with Aimee Allison, Gayle McLaughlin, and some of her supporters from
the Richmond Progressive Alliance!

Gayle is the Green who just won a decisive victory and is the first
Green on the Richmond City Council. We're meeting at campaign HQ at
10:30am for coffee, bagels, and some words from our special guests
from the northern East Bay before heading out precinct walking!

 **Sunday the 10th:

Walk with Aimee Allison, Ross Mirkarimi, and the SF Greens!
Ross is the Green who took over Matt Gonzalez' seat on the San
Francisco Board of Supervisors. We're meeting at campaign HQ at
10:30am for coffee, bagels, and some words from our special guests
from San Francisco before heading out precinct walking!

Both days we'll have breakfast--including coffee and tea--ready for
you at 10:30, and we'll provide a bag lunch as well. Don't forget to
let us know if you want a meat or a vegetarian sandwich. These events
are happening RAIN OR SHINE- if it's raining there's a lot of other
exciting things to do indoors which will keep Aimee's momentum going!

Let us know ASAP if you can do both Saturday and Sunday or just one of
the days. Please sign-up today by replying to this e-mail or calling
our campaign office at 510-594-7772. Please leave a message if no one
answers with your pick of days and any questions. Thanks in advance
for all your help!
