Given the flap about his government-funded mailings, this week might not, you’d think, be the week that Gifford leans on City Council staffers to work on his campaign.
This email went out recently from Miller for New York‘s volunteer coordinator:
“I wanted to reach out to introduce myself and to see how you might be able to help out on the campaign in your off hours. I recently started as volunteer coordinator, and I wanted to get a sense of how much time folks on the Council staff were able to give.
“If you are able to help out, please let me know your availability (evenings, weekends) and which part of the city you live in. Knowing where you live helps me know what events to invite you to so I don’t bombard you with requests for things on the opposite side of town.
“What do you do for the Council? I look forward to meeting you one of these days!”
