Looking for an Obama sign?

Posted by Annie on October 14, 2008

If you’re one of the many people seeking Obama yard signs in Harford county and aren’t having much luck finding information online, here’s some help.

There are two Obama offices in Harford County: one in Aberdeen and one in Bel Air. The Aberdeen office is at 401 Market Street (either Suite 400 or 401, I have two different addresses in my emails) and the phone number is 410-297-8530. We’ve also received a comment on this blog that you can go to the Obama office in Bel Air on a weekday between 9 and 5 for a sign.  That office is at 137 Alice Ann St # B.  The office at 202 South Main St, at the corner of South Main and Churchville Road (Route 22) is the office for Frank Kratovil (thanks for the correction).  I’m unable to find a phone number for the Bel Air office but you can always stop by during the hours I mentioned.  One last option: you can email harfordcountyforbarackobama@gmail.com.

Don’t feel too badly about the lack of signs in Harford County; part of the issue is that since Maryland is a strong blue state, there aren’t many free Obama signs floating around.  If you lived in Ohio and wanted a sign, it’d be much easier to get one!  Many of the signs that are available were paid for by donations from the individual folks involved in the Harford for Obama campaign; thanks for all your work and dedication!  I’ve been thrilled with the number of people asking me about getting Obama signs, in my daily life, when they see my bumper sticker in a parking lot, as I worked at the Democratic Party table at the Darlington Apple Festival…it’s makes me hopeful for Harford County!

Rock’n’Register is Saturday!

Posted by Annie on September 9, 2008

If you’re looking for something to do on Saturday, September 13th between the hours of 2:00 and 10:00, check out Rock’n’Register at Harford Community College.  It’s an all-ages battle of the bands show, costs $6 in advance and $8 at the door (all money after cost goes to a local non-profit), and you’ll get to hear some good local music.  Plus you can vote for your favorite band, as well as for the non-profit that should receive the money, on a voting machine from the Harford County Board of Elections.  There will be political organizations, candidates, and an opportunity to register to vote.  Click here for more information.

The conservative media

Posted by Annie on September 5, 2008

Ever feel like you’re the only person noticing the double talk coming from the mouths of Karl Rove, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Dick Morris and the like?  You’re not…John Stewart notices!  This clip shows statements by all of the above and how wildly they change when they’re talking about a Republican candidate or issue.  It’s incredible…sadly it’s something the mainstream “liberal” media would never call them out on. 

You can read an article about this and watch the Daily Show clip here courtesy of the Huffington Post.  Or click here to view the official Comedy Central clip (with commercial).

Also, from the Harford for Obama campaign:

“There is a registration drive planned for Edgewood, Woodbridge Center, 1400 block Pulaski Hwy (Rte 40) for Saturday August 23rd. As you know voter’s registration is very important to a successful outcome during an election and this is a crucial time and there is much at stake. Therefore, we must make every effort to increase the number of registered voters and thereby increase voter turnout. You will be canvassing with the New Harford Democratic Club and Young Democrats and should assemble at 9:30am. Look for the truck with the Obama Signs.”

***Please meet in the parking lot at ADVANCE AUTO, 1401 Pulaski Hwy.
