It looks like the movement to recall Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle might not have as much momentum as originally thought, as evidenced by the following email I received:
To ALL Recall Team Members WWW.RECALLDOYLE.COM:
A week has passed since all July 4rth activities have concluded including the Recall Doyle banner fly-over at the Lakefront (x2). Our numbers our now stabilizing at just over 5100 strong. We are at a decision point. We can go forward shortly with the recall but that requires a double commitment level (not the proposed average of 50 signatures per person but now an average of 100 signatures per person ) We will need to work much smarter at this level not harder. Be thinking of ways to make all of your efforts count –MAXIMIZE YOUR TIME!
NOW LET ME BE DIRECT –How many of you are willing and able to go forward at the new requirement level??? Send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org put “YES to 100” in the subject line. We’ll judge the response for our state of readiness.
We have an opportunity to make history but we must truly be willing to count the cost before jumping. DO NOT SAY “YES” unless you mean it!!!
SINCERELY WAITING ON YOUR RESPONSE,
THE RECALL DOYLE TEAM LEADERSHIP
THANKS FOR BEING A VALUABLE PART OF THE TEAM!!!
It’s worth noting the movement to recall Gov. Doyle had been aiming for 10,000 volunteers to circulate petitions, so it has to be a serious setback (or wakeup call, depending on your perspective) that they’ve only been able to muster half the number of volunteers they had hoped for.
Perhaps there’s just not as much support to recall Gov. Doyle as Chris Kliesmet and the folks at CRG had thought.
