I hope that you are well. I am writing regarding the upcoming vote on the North Carolina Marriage Amendment. I am working with the official Vote for Marriage coalition as a grassroots coordinator. My goal is to make sure that marriage supporters turn out on May 8th. Tea Party groups across the state are especially invaluable avenues for spreading the message.
I am contacting you to ask for assistance. We have 3 straight-forward goals that we would like to see achieved at every local Tea Party organization:
1) Distribute sign up forms to gather support for Marriage (http://www.voteformarriagenc.com/docs/nc_coalitionsignup.pdf) (http://www.voteformarriagenc.com/volunteer)
2) Pass resolution supporting Marriage Amendment (http://www.voteformarriagenc.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/NC_resolution.pdf)
3) Send emails to members who are not in attendance encouraging them to visit http://www.voteformarriagenc.com to sign up to support the effort
This issue has overwhelming support from Republicans, Christians, Whites, Blacks, and Tea Party Patriots, and could be a great way to energize the electorate in a very important election year.
If you have the time and date available for when your next Tea Party meeting will be occurring, I would be very interested in attending and giving a 5-10 minute update about the Marriage Amendment.
Can I count on your support for the Marriage Amendment?
Thank you very much for your assistance. Please contact me if you have any questions.
