Volunteer for the Campaign

We have a lot of ground to cover (literally) in the 132nd District to talk to voters as we work to get Marcus Brown and Kyle Langan elected.

Our campaign needs volunteers to help with canvassing and phonebanking throughout the next couple of months, up through primary day on Tuesday, September 12.

What’s canvassing? This is where we walk from street to street from home to home to engage voters at their door, aka direct voter contact. We talk to the voters about the issues they are facing and also inform them of the upcoming primary and Marcus and Kyle’s campaign. Direct voter contact is one of the best way to not only get votes, but to get good ideas for our campaign as issues from the voters are most important.

What’s phonebanking? This is where we call voters based on the home phone number they gave when they signed up to register to vote. This is a good follow up technique, as well as a good way to reach voters who don’t always answer the door when (appearing) strangers show up at their door.

Never canvassed or phonebanked before? That’s okay! At every volunteer activity, we have a training session before we send you out in teams and we will make sure you feel comfortable talking to voters before we send you out.

Sign up to help us reach more voters at inthe132.com/volunteer!

Thank you so much for taking time out of your schedule to help us WIN our campaign!

Marcus Brown & Kyle Langan Announce Bridgeport City Council Run

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – Earlier today, Bridgeport Democratic Town Committee member, Marcus Brown, and Bridgeport middle school teacher, Kyle Langan, announced their candidacy for Bridgeport City Council in the 132nd Municipal District.

Marcus Brown is a lifelong resident of the great city of Bridgeport, spending his early years growing up in Marina Village and later moving to Brooklawn. Brown’s political experience ranges from working with local elected officials like Rep. Chris Rosario and Rep. Steve Stafstrom, as well as working on the reelection campaign for Congressman Jim Himes. Currently, Marcus attends Housatonic Community College where he also serves as Secretary of the Student Senate. He is a member of the Greater Bridgeport Young Democrats and an elected representative of the Democratic Town Committee for the 132nd district.

“Many of the same issues that plagued Bridgeport in my youth remain unresolved, including violent crime and an increasing tax burden,” Brown stated. “As a graduate of the Bridgeport Public Schools, I understand the shortfalls of a system where education is chronically underfunded over decades. I will not sit back and let these issues continue to hurt future generations in our city, and that is why I’m running with Kyle for City Council to make this City a better place,” Brown concluded.

Kyle Langan is a lifelong Bridgeport native. He attended Boston University as a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. scholar where he received his BA in English., and he holds a MA in Education Leadership Management and Policy from Seton Hall University. Since June of 2016, Langan teaches at Achievement First Bridgeport Academy, a public state charter, as the 8th grade literature teacher. Langan is currently a member of Bridgeport Generation Now, Greater Bridgeport Young Democrats and organizes and attends education advocacy events as an individual.

“As a native of Bridgeport, I am humbled by the opportunity to run for City Council. Marcus and I are “United for Change” to work hard with the citizens of Bridgeport to find creative solutions to the very real and complex problems we face. I believe that every voice is valuable and that through honest, transparent communication we channel the strength of our city.” Langan concluded.

Marcus Brown & Kyle Langan are Democratic Primary challengers in the upcoming Municipal Election. The Democratic Primary is September, 12th, 2017.
