Doing the Grunt Work

Chicago DSA is running members for Local School Councils! We are looking for poll watchers and phone bankers.

Poll watchers will be at schools to observe to make sure the elections are running correctly and fairly, and track voting commitments.

What you see here is a tweet that went out to Chicago Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) members.

It is also a very good example of the sort of drudge work that needs to be done, and needs to be managed, in order for a political group to achieve success.

You don’t see a lot of small political groups doing this.

In fact, mainstream Democrats (I cannot speak to the ways of the Republicans) tend to let this slide an awful lot too, but this is precisely the sort of unglamorous, and quite frankly boring work that has to be done for a political movement to succeed.

I am not sure why the DSA seems to get this, and other groups (**cough** Green Party **Cough**) seem to have a phobia of pounding the proverbial payment, but it is one more reason to support the DSA.

They get the sh%$ done that needs to get done.
