The Weekly Wrap-Up

Posted by Mary on June 05, 2011

Take a look at few of our favorite stories from the blog this week:

  1. President Obama spoke at a memorial service for those who lost so much when tornadoes hit Joplin, Missouri. “We will be with you every step of the way until Joplin is restored and this community is back on its feet,” the President said. “We’re not going anywhere.”
  2. Colorado Field Director Amy Keegan took a moment to explain just how important one-on-one conversations are: “We win when we organize. Building strong relationships is the first and most important step toward victory in 2012.”
  3. We launched a new grassroots match fundraising campaign, with people across the country coming together to match donations from new supporters and exchanging messages of thanks: “Because of people like you and me pulling together, my wife will never be denied health insurance once she beats [her cancer],” a presentation specialist wrote to the person who matched his donation. “Thank you for supporting progress.”
  4. Volunteers in Chicago attended a grassroots planning session with Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to the President, to discuss their plans and vision for the 2012 campaign.
  5. After a month of good news for the American auto industry, President Obama visited a Chrysler plant in Toledo, Ohio. He thanked workers there for everything they’ve done to turn their company around: “I put my faith in the American worker. And I’ll tell you what—I’m going to do that every day of the week, because what you’ve done vindicates my faith.”
