Carp Connect for the Yes on P Campaign

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Since moving to Carpinteria I’ve volunteered for a number of local political campaigns, and I’m gearing up to help with another: The campaign for passage of Measure P, the county-wide ballot initiative that would ban certain kinds of new, high-intensity oil and gas drilling like fracking, acidizing, and steam injection. My concern is mainly about the risk such drilling poses to groundwater, which I think is a key resource that is only going to become more valuable in the future.

My particular focus in the Yes on P campaign is going to be to support the use of a software tool I’ve created, called Carp Connect, to do a special kind of “friend-to-friend” voter outreach. More about that is available on the following page, which I added to the site earlier tonight: A Better Way to Campaign.
