Erie Democratic Mayoral Candidate, Joe Schember is spending his days campaigning in an old-fashioned way… door-to-door.
Schember says he wants to give his constituents a chance to ask him questions and voice concerns. He says he plans on knocking on 4,000 doors for the general election, up from his original goal of 3,000. He says the more people he can meet in person, the better.
“I think people get to know me as a person a little bit,” says Schember. “They look me in the eye, they talk to me, they ask me questions. It’s amazing to me…every day I do door-to-door there are several people that invite me into their home, we sit, and we may chat for maybe 5, 10, or even 15 minutes sometimes.”
