Disclosure: I worked for the Lamont campaign doing web design and production and some writing for the official blog (from 9/5/06 to 11/07/06).

Take a look at the amazing crowd that showed up to tonight's volunteer meeting in New Haven (live blogging via the omnipresent Eric Tung):

It’s probably 85 degrees and very muggy in the the 205 Church Street 3rd Congressional District Ned Office as almost 150 volunteers meet to learn about how they can help Ned and be a cause for change. Several old faces were in the crowd, but what was most prmoising were the many new faces that we met at our event tonight!!

There were so many people, they spilled out of the office, and through the halls. All types of people, young and old, listened intently, if somewhat sweatily, as they learned about Phone Banking, Friends/Family/Neighbors, and door-knocking opportunities. They also learned more about opportunities to meet Ned and to invite even more friends into the campaign.

This is what keeps Sen. Lieberman awake at night.


Other regional volunteer meetings are being held this weekend and early next week at the Willimantic, New London, and the brand-new East Norwalk offices.

Update: There were well over 100 volunteers at the 1st CD meeting in West Hartford tonight too:

Astounding turnouts for both meetings...
I just got back from the First CD meeting in West Hartford. Our meeting was packed too! It was amazing. Go Ned!
Joe Lieberman sure knows how to hire pollsters that will give him the "right" results:

The owner of DataUSA Inc., a company that conducted political polls for the campaigns of President Bush, Sen. Joe Lieberman and other candidates, pleaded guilty to fraud for making up survey and poll results.
Tracy Costin pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Costin, 46, faces a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 when she is sentenced Nov. 30.

According to a federal indictment, Costin told employees to alter poll data, and managers at the company told employees to "talk to cats and dogs" when instructing them to fabricate the surveys.

This is SO encouraging to see! These are people who are willing to volunteer their time and efforts to WORK FOR CHANGE!

I just can't see Joe generating this kind of excitement. This makes me very happy.
