Obama’s ‘Listening Tour’ to stop in Gainesville tonight

POSTED: May 3, 2009 10:36 p.m.

Organizing for America, the Democratic National Committee’s grassroots project to support President Barack Obama’s agenda, will hold a meeting at 7 tonight at St. John’s Baptist Church in Gainesville.

The meeting is part of OFA’s series of “listening tours” taking place across the country.

Attendees, including supporters and volunteers from the general election, will be invited to offer ideas on how OFA should organize in the community.

The group will also discuss the best way to provide Americans with the tools to make their voices heard in Washington and help bring about the long-term change voters asked for so overwhelmingly last November.

“We’re here with one goal in mind — to listen,” said Lee Goodall, OFA State Director for Georgia. “The historic dedication and commitment of our supporters is what brought us victory in November and is what will help us advance President Obama’s bold vision for the country over the coming years. They, more than anyone else, know what approaches will work best in their community and were eager to hear from them.”
