It’s the day before the election and our last chance to get our candidate names infront of the public. It’s amazing how in some races, the name recognition is still low. Congressional District 3 have been doing this over interstate 394 at least once or twice a week now and I felt it’s time to join in the fun.
So…. grab a candidate sign or two from your yards or a campaign office that still has signs and come to the pedestrian bridge over I94 at the intersection of Dale and Concordia Ave or Dale and Saint Anthony Ave W. Park on Concordia Ave or Saint Anthony Ave W. You can also park at the Rondo Community Center and Library and walk up to the intersection.
The intersection of Dale and 94 is one of the busier on and off ramps in Saint Paul for Interstate 94. Not to mention, many traveling east bound during rush hour are traveling to the eastern or north eastern (35E N) side of Congressional District 4 or about to exit to go south on 35E making their way to Congressional District 2. Those traveling west bound are leaving Saint Paul to go back home to western side of Congressional District 4 or further on to Congressional District 5 or Congressional Distric 3.
Let’s take a brief break from GOTV phone calling and show the Democrats in the surrounding neighborhoods of this intersection, “We (GOP) Do Exist” and we support our Republican Nominees on the ballet. Then, return to the phones for our candidates to GOTV in the final hours before Election day, November 6th. I will have a couple folding chairs for anyone unable to stand for long periods of time.
We may even have a special appearance by Lucky Rosenbloom! The son of legendary small business owner and part of Saint Paul’s Rondo Community history, Tiger Rosenbloom.
Rules…… very important to follow the law.
1. We can not block traffic or impede traffic from flowing. if you choose to stand at the intersection, stand on one of the four corners, up on the curb.
2. We can’t prevent pedestrians from crossing the bridge. Keep personal belongings and signs close to the sides so people can pass freely.
3… not a state law… but a Jeff Johnson and other campaign’s PREFERRED BEST PRACTICE… don’t engage with people trying to bait you with an argument or respond back negatively if you receive inappropriate words or hand gestures. Don’t engage with anyone trying to get you into an argumentitive debate. If someone civilly approaches wanting to have a calm conversation, answer their questions and have a MN nice dialogue. Remember… anybody from anywhere could be recording or taking pictures. KEEP IT POSITIVE!
