Volunteering
Thanks to all the volunteers who brought Measure T to San Mateo County's November ballot with nearly 35,000 signatures. Your hard work has provided the first opportunity in 30 years for voters to resolve the Devil's Slide controversy by CHOOSING a solution which is right for the environment and coastal communities. Now we must do everything we can to make sure that Measure T will win at the polls on November 5. We must contact as many registered voters as possible in San Mateo County.

Several activities are essential for us to effectively communicate to the voters.

Phone banking

The campaign will be calling potential supporters, urging them to become involved in our campaign through volunteering their time or financially contributing. We will also be calling on registered voter households to identify our supporters and make certain that they vote on November 5. Several phone bank nights have been held during the week and on the weekend.

Precinct Walking

Precinct walking will begin in mid-September. Walkers will meet on a weekend morning, divide up into teams and walk door to door in key precincts, talk to voters and identify our supporters. This activity is good exercise physically and politically. As we learned in the signature-gathering, our personal contact(armed with facts) has persuaded many people that the Tunnel is right for San Mateo County.

Part of the phone banking effort and all of the precinct walking are about identifying voters or "VOTER ID". Before Election Day, we want to accumulate a list of our supporters. We will use this list for Get-Out-The-Vote(GOTV) on November 5.

Community Outreach

We will continue our tabling efforts at community events, farmer's markets and other venues. While tabling we can distribute literature and bumper stickers, answer questions, recruit volunteers and promote Sunday Hikes on Montara Mountain. The Yes on Measure T campaign will be active at Burlingame Art on the Avenue, the Fogfest and other community events.

Other Volunteer Activities:

Yes on Measure T is a grassroots volunteer campaign. Please join in the drive to pass Measure T. If you can help with any of these activities, please contact Jason Hatch at (415) 641-0249 or jason@tunnel.org.
