Two weeks from Election Day – write a letter, volunteer … and VOTE!

By Roger Straw, October 22, 2018

There’s still time to help – local democracy is important!

We’re coming down to the wire…  Some of us have been really busy during this campaign season.  Now’s the race to the finish!

If you can, please write a letter to support your candidate.  By now, you all know that my first choice for City Council is Kari BirdseyeVolunteer for Birdseye, ask for a yard sign, offer to make calls, send in another donation… and send in your mail-in ballot TODAY!  And if you’re like me – I’ll see you at the polling place on Tuesday, November 6.
