Flags lined West Road, cars tooted as they passed and others turned in to join Cynthia Kallgren, candidate for the 12th Congressional District as she opened her Trenton campaign office at Nu Vision Realty, 3277 West Road in Trenton. Visitors, many wearing Kallgren t-shirts, represented nine of the 26 municipalities in the district. After pizza and pop, they rolled up their sleeves and assembled yard signs, prepared a mailing, and signed up as campaign volunteers for literature distribution and phone calling.
During the evening, Friends of Cynthia Kallgren announced a video contest. They will award a $100 prize to the You-Tube video judged most effective in showing why Kallgren should be elected to Congress. Submission is by email link to the YouTube posting (or other form deemed acceptable to the committee). Submission conveys unlimited right of use to the committee for the duration of the campaign. Submission deadline is Wednesday, September 26, so that finalists may be shared and winner announced at the September 28 Wine & Cheesecake Party.
This is an opportunity for those with ambition, talent, and imagination to craft a possible viral message that can influence national politics! For additional entry information e-mail KallgrenforCongress@gmail.com.
