We anticipate a strong Republican presence at the Polls and will, therefore, staff as many of the Polls as possible with both Greeters and Watchers. In addition, we will be recruiting local Democrats in the most vulnerable precincts to support the Greeting function outside the 150-foot zone.
Our goal is to have 100+ volunteers and to staff 100% of the Early Voting Polls and 25% of the Election Day Polls. We need you. We need all of you.
Marvin Diamond is a retired attorney who practiced law in Washington, DC, for 35 years before moving to Naples in 2003. He is currently a member of the CCDEC, Vice-President of the CCDC, and head of legal for the Collier County Voter Protection Team.

She is the President of the Wing South Airpark Condominium Association, Voter Protection Lead and Committee Liaison for the Collier County Democratic Executive Committee and the Treasurer of the Collier County Democratic Club.

POSTCARD ACTIVITY DETAILS & ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
A REALLY BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEERS!!!
As most of you know we have been working on a membership/VBM postcard campaign. Our Board designed our outstanding postcard and made sure the message was in Spanish and Creole, as well as English. The cards were ordered, received, and divided into rubber band bundles of 30.
Our Sister Club on Marco Island had already sent out their own postcards to District 1 and stepped in to address cards from another district and a half. A Big Thank you to Stephanie Ballo ( DWCM President) and Jane Schlechtweg (VP) and all of the women who volunteered from Marco to help, we couldn’t have done it without you!
Anne Link, Cheryl Costley, Deborah Doppelt, Deirdra Schmidt, Ellen Coutmanche, Gail Hogarty, Kathleen Hendrix, Lenore Greenstein, Marcia Schacht, Mershon Niesner, Sally Miller
Our DWC Collier club members have been no less wonderful. We put out the call and ended up having to turn volunteers away! Most received their cards one day and returned them fully addressed the next! A special Thank you to Ruth Kuttler (Corresponding Secretary) for designing, producing, and procuring the postcards. Thank you also, to Kathy Ryan (DWCC Treasurer) and Erika Ferrari (DWCC Secretary) for bundling all the postcards and Kathy for double checking and stamping them. To Bette Ellenbogen and Linda Greenwald thank you for rallying half of our volunteers yourselves.
