Walker Report 2 hits shy of 100-thousand mark

With less than five minutes left before Halloween turns into November, Walker Report is 2 hits shy on the blog of hitting the milestone of 100-thousand views since January 10th. Looks like the milestone will be reached early Thursday morning, November 1st. The next posting will celebrate that milestone. We were so close in accomplishing the honor on Halloween. Maybe it is all for the best. We don't want to scare you!!!!

This weekend was the most successful block-walking we have had. Hundreds of voters were reached in the Shavano area. We cannot say enough about everyone who participated. If we can continue our momentum we should be able to reach our goal of knocking on 5,000 doors between now and the end of the year.

We are on our way but we cannot do it without you. With about 2 months left and the holidays right around the corner each weekend becomes increasingly important. Please let me know if you have any time to contribute to our efforts. All indications are for another sunny and beautiful weekend!

We will again be starting at Noon on Saturday and 1:30 p.m. on Sunday in Northwest San Antonio . As always, any amount of time you can help will go a long way. If you want to contribute before or after the prescribed start time simply let me know when you will be available and we will make arrangements.

Thank You for Everything!! I hope we see you this weekend. Please let me know when you may be available.
