"Person to person conversations are the best way to move the needle and motivate people to be clean water voters -- canvassing wins elections," said Bob Wendelgass, President and CEO of Clean Water Action. "We have relied on door to door canvassing to elect clean water leaders and win important policies for more than 30 years. We knew the only way to respond to the 2016 elections was to redouble our efforts, identify districts we could flip and candidates we could support, and build the people power to win elections through our field teams."
