Last week Haverhill Democrats elected Andy Vargas to be the Democratic candidate for Brian Dempsey’s seat. Andy will face Shaun Toohey in the general election on November 7. Now it’s time to get to work and make sure that Haverhill sends Andy Vargas to Beacon Hill.

First, come to the Unity Rally on October 22, 4:30 p.m., Barking Dog. Speaker Robert DeLeo will be headlining the Unity Rally along with Mayor Jim Fiorentini and State Rep Linda Dean Campbell, Dean of the Haverhill Legislative delegation. RSVP here.

Second, get involved in the campaign to send Andy Vargas to Beacon Hill. There are so many things that need to be done, no matter the boundaries of your comfort zone, there’s a place for you.

Do you work all day — and too tired at night and busy with the kids on the weekends to even think about volunteering? Write some postcards. You don’t have to leave the house except to mail them.

Can you spare a little time, but you really don’t want to leave the house?   Make some phone calls. 20 minutes three times a week would help a lot.

Do you want to get out of the house and meet new people, but you’re nervous about making phone calls and knocking on doors? Hold signs at a visibility event, or volunteer at the office to enter data.

Are you ready to get out there and meet some voters and talk about Andy face to face? Sign up to canvass, grab a packet, and hit the streets. This can be a lot of fun!

So wherever you fall on the comfort scale, there’s something you can do to help get our Democratic candidate Andy Vargas elected to the State House. Sign up to volunteer today! 

And don’t forget to come to the Unity Rally! October 22, 4:30 p.m., Barking Dog Alehouse. There will be food, people fired up and ready to go, and guest speakers. See you at the Unity Rally!
