North Oakland Dem Action for Jim Marcinkowski

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

North Oakland Dems:

The Marcinkowski for Congress Campaign will be going door-to-door across North Oakland County this weekend (  As you may know, Jim’s campaign is in reach of victory and has identified North Oakland as strategically key to Jim’s success.  Yet, unlike other parts of the state, our area has not yet achieved a critical mass of Dem volunteers.  This is why we, the small and dedicated group of Democrats in North Oakland, must step up to the plate now.

Please consider volunteering your time this Saturday to one of the following efforts:

*In HOLLY, door-to-door from 10am-2pm.  Meet at the Bittersweet Cafe, 12 S Saginaw St, Holly.

*In ORTONVILLE, door-to-door from 10am-2pm.  Meet at location TBD (contact Jamie Poller, Marcinkowski’s Oakland Field Coordinator at or 231-758-0213 for final details tomorrow)

*In CLARKSTON, door-to-door from 10am-2pm.  Meet at Caribou Coffee, 6315 Sashabaw Rd, Clarkston.

*In LAKE ORION, walking with Jim at Barn Days from Noon-5pm.  Meet at Friendship Park, Lake Orion.

Finally, if you are in need of more information, campaign paraphernalia or details about upcoming events, the North Oakland Democratic Club will be having a joint MEETING with the Orion Area Democratic Club tomorrow, Thursday, 7pm at the Orion Twp Library, 825 Joslyn Road, Lake Orion, MI 48362 [ Map]

If you have questions about any of these events, please feel free to contact me or Jamie Poller ( Jim’s coordinator for North Oakland,

Thank you for your time and dedication.  Hopefully we will see you this weekend.
