Retired Lt. Col. Nadine Flynn is running for City Council in Egg Harbor Township. Since my district includes two wards in EHT, Nadine agreed to walk with me and give me a Canvassing 101 Lesson. We met in the parking lot of the municipal building and before we began our walk, Nadine schooled me on really important walking tips. Nadine is the most organized person I know and carries a tote bag which contains an organizer – one slot is for mail-in ballot applications, the other for walk pieces, one for registration forms and even room for pens. She has samples of the applications color-coded for ease in understanding the forms that she shows to each constituent. Did I mention that Nadine has the forms in English and Spanish and that she is very organized? We met some amazing EHT residents that evening – all of whom were very engaged once they learned we were running on the democratic ticket. One tip I had for Nadine – always make that the lead!
