MANCHESTER ,NH —Senator Barack Obama’s campaign continued its unrivaled organizational efforts last week with grassroots events across the state.
At a house party in Belmont on Saturday, environmentalists heard from the state’s former Coordinator of Renewable Energy Programs, Robin Read, about Obama’s record of real leadership on energy and his plan to make America a global leader in the fight against climate change.
“Barack Obama understands that in New Hampshire, politics is a person-to-person exercise,” said Eileen Burnell, who hosted the Environmentalists for Obama house party. “Events like this house party help spread Obama’s message and build on his support at the grassroots level—where real change starts.”
On Saturday and Sunday, New Hampshire Veterans for Obama held seven volunteer trainings where NewHampshire veterans learned the effective techniques for reaching out to others who have served in uniform.
Other events included a Young Professionals’ Night in Manchester, an Educators for Obama house party in Londonderry, and a Mamas for Obama house party in Nashua. And students at Keene State, Dartmouth, UNH, and SNHU held a college version of the Hoops.Action.Change basketball tournament, combined with voter registration drives.
