This past week I had the privilege to go out on my first canvass. To be honest, I went into it a little nervous. But after talking to the first few people and hearing what they had to say on ethics in Missouri, I settled in and had a wonderful time.
Here are just a few things that I took away from my first canvassing shift:
- I shared my enthusiasm for making Missouri a better place with all of the people I met, and hopefully I convinced them to join us in calling for change;
- I got to explore Kansas City, and saw parts of it I had yet to see;
- I got to meet new people from all walks of life;
- And I teamed up with nice, like-minded folks to canvass the area and spread the word about the CLEAN Missouri campaign.
So, if you are passionate about getting big money out of politics and are looking for a way to help, get out and canvass for signatures. You get the opportunity to make a difference and increase integrity, accountability, and transparency in our state government.
