I have tried to volunteer for three different statewide campaigns over the last three weeks and have yet to hear back from any of them. Campaigns run on volunteers: not paid staff and consultants so I can't figure out why I haven't gotten a response from any of the three.
I have run five campaigns (4-1) and have volunteered on many more so I know how valuable volunteers are. Since they are not paid, they can go anywhere and work for anyone they want and generally are very committed to a candidate because of this. Volunteers knock on doors, make phone calls, stuff envelopes and do the things that keep campaigns in front of the voters.
In this time of shrinking donor contributions and media consolidation, I can't quite figure out this lack of response.
Or maybe it is because I blog at BlueNC.
