Obama’s Oregon campaign launches online tools for
by Bend Weekly News Sources

PORTLAND, Ore. – The Obama campaign will launch an ambitious new field program across Oregon this week designed to empower volunteers to support the campaign with innovative internet tools.  The campaign will identify and train Obama Oregon Community Organizers (Obama OCOs) in an effort to assist supporters in reaching out to their friends and neighbors to talk about Senator Obama’s commitment to bringing change we can believe in to Washington.

Today, the campaign is unveiling a group of innovative internet tools that can be accessed through the new Obama Oregon Community Organizer website. These online tools will allow Obama OCOs to empower volunteers in their own communities to phone bank and canvass, and even manage data.  Read below about some of the tools that the campaign will make available to the Obama OCOs:

  • The ‘Virtual Phone Bank’ will enable volunteers to make phone calls to Oregonians from wherever they desire, while avoiding duplicate calls.  Volunteers will even be able to print their own call lists of prospective voters and host phone banks in their own homes.

  • Using ‘Turf Cutter,’ Obama OCOs will be able to create maps of targeted households for our volunteers to canvass for change in their own communities.  

  • Obama OCOs can even maximize their impact for the Obama campaign by learning to enter and manage data about the voters they have contacted across the state.  Experienced OCOs can then learn to create their own lists of targeted voters.  

Anyone interested in creating a login name to navigate the Obama OCO tools and learn more about the program, may visit http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/orpcc_home/

The Obama OCO program will allow the campaign to build on the deep grassroots support and enthusiasm for Senator Obama in Oregon.  Just this past weekend, hundreds of Obama volunteers knocked on thousands of doors and made thousands of phonecalls, registering thousands of voters in communities across the state.  Also this past weekend, the campaign opened offices in Salem and Medford.   Oregon for Obama will be opening their 8th office tonight in Bend

“Oregonians have a historic opportunity to send a message that they are ready choose the future over the past and tell Washington that it’s time for a change,” said Rob Hill, Oregon State Director for Obama for America.  “The strength of this campaign is based on the talent and energy of volunteers and supporters who will build a grassroots movement for change in communities large and small across Oregon.”

  • For those that have been told there was no way to obtain their dreams and hopes and that it was useless to try - look towards Hillary Clinton as a symbolic figure of hope and possibility - the only experienced candidate with solutions to our everyday problems from healthcare, student loans to gas tax relief and many many more. Hope and Change - just words from Obama - whatever they mean - I think he means change the old style Washington DC politics yet accepts the endorsements of Kennedy, Kerry and many many more old time style politicans - he is just one too. Hope - well as a senior citizen I have watched the Clintons for decades giving home to communities from California to Mississippi - from shelters for the homeless to jobs for the unemployed - Bill and Brad Pitt were recently in New Orleans giving hope to that community for reconstruction - Hillary also later on attended a rally there even though she did not receive the black communities votes - Obama was too busy with his campaign to attend - just another politican. There there is the problem with the Pastor that he was unaware of viewpoints after 20 years - I personally DO NOT want someone in the White House that might be unaware of Russia, China, Iran or N. Korea - let alone his association with the likes of Ayers, Rezko and Pastor Wright that we know about - how many more that we do not know about. Please Oregonians we have this opportunity to make the choice of our next President - don't make the mistake that was done 4 years ago - vote with your hearts - know the candidate that will help the younger community, the older community - the middle class community GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY.

  • Mother's Day-Money Bomb Day for Hillary! A Poem I found, Happy Mother's Day to all! MILITARY MOMS This year on Mother s Day We should think of offspring lost And Mothers of all those Troops Who paid the ultimate cost. They ve watched Sons and Daughters Sent off to a foreign land To fight wars and give their all In some conflicts so ill planned. But no matter what the reasons They ve always stepped up to the line To give their lives for Freedoms Enjoyed by all of yours and mine. We must Honor all those Mothers Of all those who have Served And Sacrifices that they made With our, Thanks! , so well deserved. It takes a very Special Lady To let Her Child go off to War Or just to join the Military With the pride and fear and more. There's too many Gold Star Mothers And if you might know of one Please send Her a special wish To praise Her Daughter or Son. Military Moms are the Greatest With a strength beyond compare Who hope and pray their loved one Comes Home safe, from over there. So, let s keep them in our thoughts And hope their prayers come true All those Moms and all those Troops Who stand Strong and Proud, and True. Del Abe Jones 5-10-2006 "If you have been touched by this poem Please contribute to Hillary's campaign To bring the rest of our troops home! Five dollars will come in very handy Let's give our troops a parade and maybe give them candy Now is the time, if ever there has been one before The time is now, let's not shut the door If you don't want to contribute for yourself Do it for the troops, do it for someone else Contribute for those who are defending this land Contribute for those so they understand That they will be home in 60 days the election of Hillary Clinton, the small cost now is little to pay" -jill from florida www.hillaryclinton.com
