I agreed to help Rosie Rivera, Salt Lake County Sheriff, in her re-election campaign and I want you to join me.
Rosie is the first woman elected to this office in Utah and there is more. She has spent the last 25 years in law enforcement, watching, listening, learning and thinking about how to improve the Sheriff's department, the United Police Department and the jail. Here is the Tribune article about her election: https://www.sltrib.com/news/2017/12/17/once-a-teenage-mom-and-high-school-dropout-rosie-rivera-utahs-first-female-sheriff-worked-hard-and-kept-at-it-to-blaze-the-trail-shes-on/ .
I know that you will agree that given the challenges we are facing with immigration, homelessness and the opioid epidemic (just to name a few), we need someone like Rosie who has demonstrated a commitment to compassionate, wise and professional leadership.
Here's how you can help. We are planning a fundraiser at Frida Bistro on April 7th from 7 - 9:00 pm that is generously donated by Jorge Fiero. The official invitation will be ready in a minute. You could:
- Attend a short planning meeting on Saturday, March 17th, 8:30 am
- Lend your name to the invitation as a host ($100 contribution)
- Spread the word through your network
- Attend the event
- Donate to Rosie at http://rosieforsheriff.com/
Please let me know ASAP how you want to help (email Bev at brc211 (at) gmail.com) We are finalizing the invitation in the next couple of days. Thank you. Bev
