Kudos & Complaints by Mike Thayer
KUDOS: A representative from Americans For Prosperity just knocked on my door... A very polite young man, he made sure to let me know that he was NOT there to endorse or solicit support for any candidate, but was there for a get out the vote effort. After asking me if it was OK to have me participate in a very brief survey and I said, "Yes," he handed me a tablet with 9 questions on it, to include a couple of issue questions related to the city's debt and some get out the vote questions (like, do you know where your voting precinct is?). He also asked me if I was interested in an absentee ballot, but me being the traditionalist, I like to vote in person on election day so no absentee ballot request was necessary. I completed the survey in short order, he thanked me, we shook hands, he went on his way. Nice guy, and I appreciate what Americans For Prosperity is doing in raising voter awareness. Good stuff.
COMPLAINT: To anyone putting out blatant misinformation about Americans For Prosperity and what they're doing with their get out the vote effort. It's clear they're knocking on doors to do just that - get out the vote awareness - and nothing else.
