8-Day Walk for the 99%!

Two years ago I walked 140 miles in 12 days from the NY Stock Exchange on Wall Street up to Albany to make the point that the worst things to do in deep recession are budget cuts, layoffs, union-busting…

[even if you can just join me for beginning, end, or part of middle—it would be great to have folks with me]

[need reminder of what this Walk for the 99% is about?… scroll down for polls this campaign is about]

[also—depending on how this Walk for the 99% goes, Team Tyner is also planning similar walks from Delhi onward, Hudson to Coxsackie, Cooperstown to Cobleskill, Monticello to Liberty, Oneonta to Sidney; let us know if you’d like to help us plan those!… (can’t do this without you all; step up now folks!)]

[again—Team Tyner conference call tonight 9 pm—call 845-444-0599 now to sign up to participate]

Once more—this is crucial—we need you in grass roots across the 19th c.d. to step up to the plate to be responsible for organizing/educating, mobilizing, locking down YOUR individual communities for this campaign, GOTV; for each of 140+ municipalities(!)… let us know asap if you can do that for Team Tyner, folks!…

Send $$$ you can—to Joel for Congress, 324 Browns Pond Rd., Staatsburg, NY 12580, or click here for PayPal—pass it on!…

Wondering what the Team Tyner plan is to mobilize Dems to come out in force for June 26th primary?…

Here it is!….(note: actual rallies/press conferences for these nine issues won’t necessarily be on Mondays):

[these ten issues below encapsulate our winning populist, progressive campaign—heart of Dem party]

[note: we already have Women for Tyner and Students for Tyner launched on Facebook—please let us know ASAP if you might be interested in helping to launch Seniors for Tyner on Facebook—and/or Small Business for Tyner, Labor for Tyner, Fractivists for Tyner, Farmers for Tyner, or Veterans for Tyner!]
