Stay Positive and Have Fun.
TWO WEEKS TO GO!
Only two weeks to go and I need your help with phone calls, cards, and yard signs.
I need ten volunteers to help me make phone calls the next two Sunday afternoons, 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM, 10/25 and 11/1. We will be using a computerized phone system that dials for us, keeps track of whom we talk to, and leaves messages if we reach an answering machine. Please let me know if you can help either Sunday. If you cannot help on Sunday but can make phone calls from home, I can furnish you with a list of the names and phone numbers of likely voters in your neighborhood to call, as well as a script that you might follow.
I am asking everyone to write a card to their friends and neighbors asking them to vote for me. If you can help with this, I can furnish you with envelopes, postage, cards, and campaign brochures for mailing.
If you do not have a “Jere Wood for Mayor” sign in your yard yet, or you have another good location for a sign, please come by my office to pick up yard signs, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call my office at 770-641-1923 and we will deliver and install the yard signs for you.
Attached is an application for an absentee ballot. Absentee ballots may be picked up at City Hall, or by request, mailed to you.
You can vote early in person at the North Fulton Annex between now and October 23rd.

Last Tuesday I learned the history of the Roswell Junior Woman’s Club at their 30th anniversary celebration. They had been a positive force in maintaining Roswell’s small-town character and values. On Wednesday I had a home-cooked Indian lunch with the Roswell Ramblers at East Roswell Park and that evening I attended the City Council debates. On Thursday I judged the Roswell Idol Contest on Canton Street during Alive After 5. Friday Night, Judie and I hosted a party for 80 guests at our pig roast eve party. Saturday Night we hosted the Mayor’s Ball and BBQ Contest benefitting Star House Foundation. Rain threatened but the party went on. A bonfire and dancing kept us warm. Spiced Right Rib House, Shane’s Rib Shack, Talk of the Town, Two Mayors BBQ, and the Willow Springs BBQ Team served up great BBQ. The People’s Choice for the best BBQ in Roswell for the second year was the Roswell Fire Department team, First Due BBQ. On Sunday after cleaning up, I dropped by Roswell North Elementary Fall Festival before going to Pat Price’s and Lynn McIntyre’s neighborhood gathering in Horseshoe Bend. Afterwards, I went to Neal and Jocelyn Gasaway’s home and met their friends in Martin’s Landing.
Thank you for all your help.
Please forward this to your friends, and ask them to vote on November 3rd.
It’s all good!
