Lynchburg, VA - A new Obama office has come to the HIll CIty. On Saturday, a grand opening was held at the new campaign office in the 2,000 block of Lakeside Dr. It will serve as the campaign headquarters for the city of Lynchburg and Campbell County.
Five other locations throughout the state also opened their doors this weekend. Organizers say the office openings are the latest steps to build the campaign's grassroots infrastructure in every corner of the state.
The office will be a hub for local campaign activities, phone banking, canvassing, and voter registration.
"We have our neighborhood teams. We've got eight different teams in Lynchburg. Each of them are organizing their own neighborhood and their own turf, which is like their community, so this way instead of it being a top down approach where we're in the office, everyone gets involved within their community," said Will Scott, organizing fellow.
There are now 31 Obama campaign offices in the state.
