Michigan's First District comprises 36 counties, the largest district east of the Mississippi. For Democrats running in rural areas, an effective campaign requires a robust and active volunteer team of leaders embedded in the community.
As we did in 2022, Dr. Bob hopes to have a presence in every county with frequent campaign visits. Logistically, this requires help from many individuals on the ground.
The Dr. Bob Lorinser for Congress campaign is seeking at least 72 dedicated individuals (or two in each county) to act as campaign liaisons or liaison teams. These lead volunteers will be at the core of our campaign and serve as county managers or team captains.
No experience is required, but we’re seeking leaders with initiative.

HOW TO GET STARTED
We hope to identify all lead volunteers by April 2023. The campaign will provide resources and information for all liaisons. After a brief training and meeting with staff, you will have what you need to help Dr. Bob make the most impact in your county.
You, as a county leader, will be one of the most critical aspects of the campaign, and we need you immediately. We need ideas, insight, advice, and your help igniting the most organized, efficient, and effective grassroots team in Michigan.
These volunteer positions will help us build our paid field team in the spring of 2024, which is excellent for campaign experience, resumes, and networking. We're looking for a representative cross-section of the district - young, old, students, retirees, and working professionals. Everyone is welcome. Part of your responsibilities will include involving/recruiting others.
SAVE THE DATE
