Be a Block Captain in Your Precinct

At the 2022 BPOU Convention in March 19, 2022, please consider being a Block Captain in your precinct. The lowest level of an organized political unit is at the block level. In order for a Local Party Unit (bpou) to operate well it needs functional precinct activity. To have functional precinct activity you need Block Captains.

Duties of a Block Captain

Here are some duties a Block Captain can do.

  • Know who lives on your block in terms of political leanings, hobbies, if they have children, do they request political yard signs, other affiliations
  • Help the Precinct Officers put together precinct activities
  • Help put up yard signs
  • Help with Neighbor-to-Neighbor activities
  • Put together a Block Club
  • Learn about local issues affecting the neighborhood and or precinct
  • Organize a neighborhood watch group
  • Do neighbor activities to help out neighbors (cut grass, shovel sidewalks, do gardening)
  • Do civic duties such as clean the fire hydrants and bus stop locations free of snow
  • Pick up trash in your block
  • Report potholes to St Paul Public Works
Block Captains can clean off snow from bus stops, shovel sidewalks for neighbors who can’t. Essentially live your beliefs, be a good neighbor, be a good citizen, and be the friendly face of the HD 66B Republicans.

You can do some of those activities by enlisting others to help you. If you’re doing them all that would be above and beyond fantastic. If you do some of them that would be enough. The idea is you don’t need to be elected to do this, unless there are more than one person on your block, if so share the responsibilities.

You don’t have to wait until the BPOU Convention, or a specific date to become a Block Captain/Leader. Just contact mnhd66brepublicans@gmail.com with the subject line “Block Captain” in order to be a Block Captain of your block or Apartment Complex, or to ask questions about it. We’ll honor Block Captains by mentioning them at the Convention.

Thank you ahead of time for enlisting to help on the block level.
