    • What it takes to Win
      Tanya Tarr
      Director of Legislative
      and Political Mobilization
      Texas AFT
    • What it takes to Win
      Why Elections Matter
      Why Volunteers Matter
      Why COPE Matters
      Dallas ISD and the races in 2009
    • Why CCISD Trustees Matter
      The Campaign Against Self-Funded Healthcare
      Passed a 3.3% pay raise for auxiliary pay increase
      Might take away our continuing contract for certified personnel
      And only 10% of school districts in Texas have continuing contracts
      Discipline Policy – What about Safe, Civil Schools?
    • Why Elections Matter
      You have an opportunity to elect your boss.
      Every election is a chance to rebuild your School Board
      We’re the loudest voice for ALL school employees
      If you don’t like the bums, throw them out!
      I mean, elect your bosses!
    • Why Volunteers Matter
      Campaigns run on People, Time and Money
      People-powered is the path to victory
      Volunteers are critical in:
      Keep track of the lists
      Staffing phonebanks and blockwalks
      Help put together events
      Help focus what the issues are
      Help raise resources (COPE dollars)
    • Why your voice works
      It’s 100% from a real person.
      You’re speaking to the problems they face.
      *You* make the difference – as a school
      employee, you are not just some stranger.
      You are a credible messenger.
    • How you can help…
      We need help to win this election through:
      Postcard writing
      Being a Precinct Captain
      Block Walking
      Sign Distribution
      Working Election Day
    • Why COPE Matters
      You contributions go directly into helping get someone elected:
      Postage stamps ($10 = 22 stamps)
      Telephone lines ($15 = pays for a phone line)
      Postcards ($20 = 91 postcards)
    • Dallas ISD – 2 out of 3 isn’t bad!
      • Endorsed 3 candidates, 2 successfully elected.
      • One was a former Alliance member
      • Special Election and Run-off Election
      • Mobilized 50+ members
      • Heavy phonebanking and handwritten communication won the day.
    • WE have the POWER
