Volunteers are needed in District Four (the Sunset) to do outreach to
Green Party Voters. Projected turnout for the November 5th election
is expected to be below 30% of all voters in SF. During the next 12
days, in addition to helping Mike Murphy in his campaign for District
Four Supervisor, we will work to encourage 50% of Greens to vote.

the Sunset. For more information or to volunteer, contact Mike Murphy
