A Message from the Chris Turner Campaign

As summer quickly approaches, our campaign is moving into high gear. With Election Day less than six months away, we’ve put together a grassroots campaign plan that will engage voters in every corner of our district.

Because of the huge success of the last campaign’s Mega Walks, we’re bringing them back!  During our Mega Walks in 2008, over 200 volunteers helped the campaign knock on over 12,000 doors!

If you didn’t get to participate in a Mega Walk in 2008, here’s how it works:

We focus our volunteer efforts on one Saturday a month and by having dozens of volunteers knocking on doors at the same time, we cover a lot of territory and make a huge impact.  On Saturday, July 10th, volunteers will hit the streets again to talk to voters about our campaign for the second Mega Walk of 2010.

So what are you waiting for?  Mark your calendar for all the walk dates: July 10th, August 7th, September 11th and October 2nd and sign up for the July 10th Mega Walk.

If you have any questions please contact Grace at 817-561-4900 or via email at grace@votechristurner.com

Bill White for Governor

This week, Bill White released all tax returns for his years in elected office and called on career politician Rick Perry to stop stonewalling and agree to attend debates. Not surprisingly, Perry turned to slash and burn politics and lied about Bill White’s record as a successful businessman. Our campaign will continue to aggressively push Rick Perry to debate as we move into the summer.

In order to effectively communicate our message and reach out to Texans to introduce Bill White, we need your help to reach out to your friends, family, coworkers and neighbors. The best way to do this is to get involved with other supporters in your neighborhood.

Here are some upcoming event near you:

If you aren’t able to make it out to any events, please contact the office to learn about other opportunities to support Bill and the campaign.
