  1. I would like to launch the call for phone banking volunteers for DA Spain as soon as possible.  We have nearly 4,000 members in our database to deal with.  The sooner we can start the better.  I understood that someone from the GOTV team would be contacting me to discuss our CC plan.  Would someone please contact me asp.

    Best Regards,

    Gil Carbajal

    Chair, DA Spain
