Notes from the Trail!
(Please feel free to forward!)
Lots to share with you about our campaign! In this email, check out info about my being on Kojo’s show, absentee voting, our Meet & Greets, getting a yard sign, making a contribution, how the first mayoral debate went, the debate schedule, and Earth Day!
Remember my site, www.allisonsilberberg.com, has a great deal of information about my platform, my background, plus media hits.
First, I want to thank all those who have joined our Allison Brigade!
Without you, our campaign would not be possible.
I am grateful to all those who are going door to door for our team!
You all are truly amazing.
Listen to the “Kojo Nnamdi Show” THIS Friday at noon!
I will be on WAMU.org‘s “Kojo Nnamdi Show: The Politics Hour” on WAMU.org (88.5 FM) on Friday, May 1, at noon. The show runs from noon to 1 pm. I am not sure what time I will be interviewed by Kojo Nnamdi and Tom Sherwood. Of course, I am delighted to be back on Kojo’s show. A video stream will be available at kojoshow.org.
Absentee Voting Has Started!
The Primary is Tuesday, June 9th, and absentee voting has started! Click here for information about absentee voting.
Meet & Greets!
Special thanks to all those who are hosting events for me in their homes. All the gatherings have been incredible.
(At a fabulous and delicious Meet & Greet, hosted by Angela Calos and Kathy Bowdring, at Angela’s home in Del Ray. Pictured are: Angela Calos, Ken Hill, Mark Fraase, yours truly, and Kathy Bowdring.)
Yard Signs, Window Signs & Bumper Stickers! Oh my!
Our yard signs are in folks’s yards all over town. Please let us know if you would like a Yard Sign, a Bumper Sticker, and/or a Window Sign. Ken Hill delivers super fast! Many thanks to Ken! What would I do without Ken? And if you would like to be part of our growing Yard Sign Team, please email Ken! It is really fun and makes a big difference.
Thank you for all the Contributions!
Huge thanks for your generous contributions. Because of your help, we have been able to buy yard signs, thousands of grip cards, window signs, bumper stickers, and lapel stickers. Every dollar makes a big difference with our grassroots, all-volunteer campaign.
Right now, we are focused on raising funds to cover our mass mailings to voters. A contribution of any size will make a difference and is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!

Our first mayoral debate was on Thursday, April 23, and was hosted by the Taylor Run Citizens’ Association and the Clover College Park Civic Association. The organizers did an outstanding job. The cafeteria was packed, and we covered many topics.

Every day is Earth Day. Last Saturday, it was fun and meaningful to join tons of Alexandrians for the city’s Earth Day activities. First, I joined the Tree Stewards in Tarleton Park, where numerous volunteers planted at least a dozen trees. It was inspiring. I love the Tree Stewards. Hats off to Bonnie Petry for her leadership. Many thanks to Rod Simmons of our city’s staff for his ingenuity and help with our city’s open space and parks.
Second, Mindy Lyle organized a large team effort to spruce up Ewald Park. Activities included planting trees (see the photo) and flowers as well as painting a new fence. Many thanks to Bonnie, Mindy, and all those who participated in both events and those who donated the materials.
I also loved being at our city’s official Earth Day event at Ben Brenman Park.
Many thanks to one and all! The enthusiasm for our mayoral campaign across the whole city is phenomenal. Thank you for your friendship, belief, and support. I am grateful and honored.
All my best,
Vice Mayor of Alexandria
