Blogger’s note: I gotta tip my cap to Matthews for making a go of it! I also think it’s great that he is canvassing ElDorado County and Alpine County as well! As soon as the fur starts flying between Gaines and Allard – will Matthews benefit or will he be forgotten?
Rob Matthews Campaign announces a 20 day Bureaucracy Busting Tour of the 4th assembly District.
Matthews’ Team deploys the Mobile Command Center.
Rob Matthews, a Republican who is running for the recently vacated 4th District Assembly seat, is announcing an ambitious 20 day tour of the 4th district named the “Bureaucracy Busting Tour.” Rob has been speaking to voters over the phone by the hundreds and walking Roseville and Lincoln precincts daily. Now the Matthews team is reaching further by deploying its Mobile Command Center today. Matthews said “We’re going to kick off the Bureaucracy Busting Tour in my hometown of Placerville and get out and meet with more voters and business owners all across the district to hear their voice. The cornerstone of my campaign has been my accessibility. I am the only candidate who has put my cell phone out there and that won’t change if the good people of the 4th district send me to the capital as their representative. The Mobile Command Center allows me to do just that get out there and meet people, without having to sacrifice the office component of our campaign located in Roseville. We can get out meet people and quickly get from one end of the district to another in matter of hours. Today the tour is scheduled to be in Placerville then on to Alpine County to the town of Markleeville and finishing the day in South Lake Tahoe.
“I have a great team of volunteers. We have the organization and determination to win this race. This is truly is a grassroots campaign, fast pace and it will be hard fought and we’re bringing our ‘A’ game to the fight.”
Donations are coming in and the phones are ringing all the time. “I am a fighter and will fight all the way for 4th district.. the people here want a fighter, someone to fight for them, who’s accessible. Not some career politician but an everyday kind of person who can bring common scene and their voice to the legislature. It’s really what our founding fathers envisioned for the lower house of the legislatures.”
“We are energized and we really have struck a nerve with the people out here tired of politics as usual… I am totally committed.”
The Mobile Command Center, (MCC) is a nearly 40 foot long, 900 square foot mobile office with computer and media capability. The MCC has sleeping, dining, and restroom facilities for the campaign staff and Rob’s family. The MCC has a backup support SUV the campaign has dubbed the “The Beast,” specifically equipped for heavy snow and adverse weather conditions.
