Behind every good election campaign are dedicated workers and volunteers to help get the winning edge. While most are experienced politicians, others are young, motivated workers ready to take on the everyday duties of a successful campaign.
Laura Frank, a former Temple University student, was called upon to be the campaign manager of the Verna Tyner for City Council 8th District campaign. Frank has been working hard to make her name known in local politics.
“The turnout for the Obama election was huge and then went down in 2010,” Frank explained, “We are using a lot of social networks and we are really trying to rely on Facebook and Twitter.”
Historically, citizens of Philadelphia fail to vote in large numbers during City Council elections but Frank thinks that will change through hard work and dedication.
“It is a City Council campaign and people don’t tend to come out,” Fran said, “We are trying to stress how this decision matters in the fact that the incumbent is stepping down and that it is a wide open field this year.”
