Mark your calendars for a membership/ working meeting at Evolutionary Healthcare on Tuesday, October 2nd at 6:00 pm. We may have some candidates update us on their campaigns and/or have some sponsors of initiatives tell us more about their efforts, but mostly we will be having members help our candidates by making phone calls and writing postcards to constituents. So, come prepared to learn and work!
We had a productive evening on Wednesday at Carol Osborn's home with a group of about 12 volunteers to write postcards and make calls to registered voters on behalf of our supported candidates. It was a lot of fun and we're happy that we can provide this support in addition to money.
The vetting committee reviewed several more candidates and have recommended, in addition to the five candidates we are currently supporting, our PAC support for the following people. If any of these candidates are in your district, or you are interested in helping them, please reach out to them!
