Hello Daily Kos!

Primary day is here, and I’ve been campaigning nonstop all over Pennsylvania, but I wanted to take a moment to thank the Daily Kos community for your support. Thank you for the hours you volunteered, your donations, and for your feedback.

But there’s still more to do. Polls are open until 8 PM tonight and every bit helps. Below the fold are 5 things you can do right now to support my campaign.

    1. Vote! If you’re a Pennsylvania resident it starts with casting your ballot. You can find your polling place here.
     2. Tell Your Friends! Call all the PA residents you know and make sure they know how important this primary is. Make sure they know their polling place and walk them through a plan to vote. Ask them when they plan to vote and who they’ll bring with them. If they’re undecided, be sure to let them know where I stand on the issues.
    3. Volunteer! There’s still time to knock on doors and make phone calls. Find your nearest campaign office here. While you’re at it, sign up for a shift or two.
     4. Tweet! Tweet your support. I’m @allysonschwartz and my supporters use the hashtags #TeamSchwartz and #PAGov on Twitter.
     5. Share! I’m really proud of my campaign ads. Take a moment to watch my final ad and share it on Facebook.

This election is incredibly important - so much is at stake for our kids, our communities, and our future. While there are some questions regarding my opponents record on public education, I know what it takes to get things done. I'm the only candidate who's worked on a fair funding formula, and as a mother of two proud Central High graduates in Philadelphia I know our schools can be great.

Polls are closer than what's been reported. I have defied expectations in tough races before, and with your help I can do it again!

Normally my staff sticks around to answer questions but I hope you’ll forgive their absence today. They’ll be out knocking on doors and making phone calls until the polls close. Again, thank you for everything Kossacks - I'm so happy I was able to become part of this community! Talk again soon!

Thanks for everything,
Allyson

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    if you're a Pennsylvanian and care about mental health, public education right through college, the environment, the poor, medicaid... you know a state such as William Penn imagined, there is only one candidate- Allyson Schwartz. Don't put a wolf in with the spring lambs.

    •  Wolf seems the most conservadem. And $$$ has (0+ / 0-)

      bought him the lead. But the other condidates were foolish to give him weeks of unopposed advertising. Still. I'll vote for Allyson Schwartz as the most likely to pose a challenge, but I'd prefer Kathleen McGinty.

  •  Well, I voted for you! (1+ / 0-)

    You provided a link to an article (with clear negative campaigning intent) about your opponents support for charter schools.

    Yet despite the clear ability to do so, you fail to provide a link to an article  (with positive campaign intent) describing what major points you believe are required in fair funding of schools.

    Use the web for it's full communicative purposes.

    I voted for you today!

    The biggest communication problem is that we don't listen to understand. We listen to reply.
