A #TeamPeteThread: I first heard of @PeteButtigieg as I was sitting on my sofa on a cold Arch night in MN and tuned into @CNN. I was immediately intrigued on the idea of restoring the values of freedom, security & democracy. So I donated! #PeteForAmerica #WinTheEra
I sat on that same couch in April to watch @PeteButtigieg officially announce his candidacy for the @TheDemocrats nomination for POTUS. #TeamPete #PeteForAmerica #PeteForPresident #WinTheEra
Then in May I got the privilege of hearing @PeteButtigieg speak @FineLineMPLS about waking up the next day to see 2 men on the cover of @TIME w/ the title “First Family”. We even chatted for a couple minutes. BTW, all of this was in thanks to two generous #TeamPete folks.
One of those folks then got me involved in helping plan @MN4Pete presence during @TwinCitiesPride. I began to meet incredible people who like @MelanieMN9, @Mpls4Pete & @Coffee4Pete & was full of #PrideForPete.
And before I would move, I also helped run a @MN4Pete grassroots volunteer session with dear friends @tavener_j, @jensineahlberg, @MnMarches & @watergirl626. We were inspired from the get go with a kick off from @BetsyHodges, a friend of @PeteButtigieg. #TeamPete #PeteForAmerica
As I was preparing to move back home, I got to reconnect with @modernangelo to help ramp up @neb4pete. Along the way, @jmsesow & @jodimasters were willing to answer a call from a rando and join us. @nebraska_ryan & Mitch even came up to MN to our volunteer training. #TeamPete
With two weeks of being back in Omaha, I met the one & only @lizzyheurich! I did my 1st canvassing stint on a 💯 degree day in a parking lot then headed to a barn in IA to hear @PeteButtigieg speak & have him sign my copy of his book. Ooh I met @iamkengonzo too! #TeamPete
@neb4pete began hosting Pete-Ups & debate watch parties where more #TeamPete folks were met who I now call dear friends. Heck I even broke my arm heading to one hosted by @FerrisWheel41, but at least I got to promote @PeteButtigieg whole at the ER. #TeamPete
Council Bluffs finally got a @PeteButtigieg office in September and in less than a week some incredible #TeamPete folks transformed the space into a beauty and over 100 folks came to hear from Mayor of Parkland FL, @CHunschofsky. #PeteForAmerica #WinTheEra
An early September Saturday morning had me headed to DSM for the traditional Steak Fry where #TeamPete showed Iowa & the nation the strength of the @PeteForAmerica campaign and folks gave @PeteButtigieg two stand ovations as they heard his values & vision. #PeteForPresident
In October I hosted a “house party” injunction with @CNN’s LGBTQ Town Hall to introduce more folks to @PeteButtigieg, met NE State Senator @Adam_Morfeld as @neb4pete helped wrote to almost 200 Iowans & hung out with @NebraskaDems. #TeamPete #PeteForAmerica
November got off to a 🔥 start with the Liberty & Justice event. I met so many amazing @PeteBarnstormer folks, listened to @BenFolds, met @Chas10Buttigieg & Anne, was part of thousands of #TeamPete who helped spark the rise in @PeteForAmerica you now see today. #WinTheEra
The weekend ended with upping my involvement with #TeamPete & starting as a volunteer team coordinator for @shalinichil. The next week @Chas10Buttigieg gave me a call. Even better, I got my first CTCs while 🚪 knocking. #PeteForAmerica #ChastenForFirstGentleman #WinTheEra
So much to be thankful for in November. Gave thanks with my #TeamPete friends & then volunteered at the largest (I think) @PeteForAmerica campaign event with 2100 folks hearing @PeteButtigieg speak in Council Bluffs.
And this past month was full of more 🚪 knocking, CTCs collected & memories made with my dear friends who rock it in SW IA, @lizzyheurich, @shalinichil, @PenfoldAntonia, @SamHanoura_PFA & @GoAlexFlood (@FranksBlueHot was absent 😔).
But how could I forget all the donations that poured into @PeteButtigieg thanks to so many #TeamPete folks in the last 5 days of 2019. Nearly 200 additional donations that amounted to roughly $800. 🤩 #PeteForAmerica #WinTheEra
All of these moments are what has led to this movement of belonging, hope & joy for myself & so many who make up #TeamPete. We need to do all we can in the next 33 days until the #IACaucus to ensure this movement leads to @PeteButtigieg taking home 🥇 on February 3rd. See 👇🏻
@neb4pete let’s get to work on 1/11, 1/12, 1/18 & 1/19 with knocking 🚪 or making ☎️ calls as part of @PeteForAmerica’s Weekends of Action to help @shalinichil & @PenfoldAntonia.




Then it’s all hands on deck @neb4pete from January 31 to February 3 as we help Get Out The Caucus with more 🚪 knocking & ☎️ banking for @shalinichil & @PenfoldAntonia to #WinTheEra.


@PeteBarnstormer friends you can help make sure @PeteButtigieg takes home 🥇 in Iowa too with Get Out The Caucus efforts January 31 - February 3. #PeteForAmerica #WinTheEra

Phew, this thread has reached its end. My 2020 Resolution is shaped by @PeteButtigieg’s & @PeteForAmerica’s Rules of the Road. I will strive to be bold in my goal setting, seek excellence daily & be joyful every step of the way! #TeamPete #PeteForAmerica
