Geri Wilboutt (I am not sure of the spelling for her last name because I could not read my handwriting.) came by to canvas for Antonio Delgado, Karen Smythe, Didi Barrett. Coincidentally I had gotten home from canvassing for the same people. This was the first time I had done this. I had to go to Karen Smythe's campaign office in Hyde Park to get my instructions. It didn't start out all that smoothly since it took me a while to find the office. I was given a special app for my phone which had on it the list of addresses and people that I was supposed to talk to. Also on that app was a place to indicate whether they were home or not, as well as rating their responses for voting for these candidates. There was also a place for notes for each person which I took full advantage of. I started out from the office and immediately couldn't find the first address, but soonish I did. I went to a couple of addresses before I decided I should go back home to get my asthma spray since I needed it and couldn't concentrate on what I was doing with the possibility of an asthma attack looming, So I restarted and managed to visit about half the people on my list before I pooped out. The app also has the capability of letting campaign headquarters know who I had seen. The experience was reasonably interesting, but I am not sure accomplished very much.
