To those of you new our email list and those of you who aren’t used to getting more frequent emails than would normally occur, remember that it is an important time to be informed.  The next few months are quite  unpredictable.  It may be necessary to  stand up to do what we can to protect our democracy.   Please stick with us as navigate what lies ahead. 


We have lots of free Biden signs left.  Show your support in the last few days by picking up several signs to fill up your yard.  We also have cardstock signs for those without a yard.  

On Wednesday, November 4th we will be collecting your yard sign wires at the office.  Please throw away the sign but leave the wires outside our office before 6:00 pm.  If you can’t make it by 6, please store your wires until the next election.

All larger signs that we placed in your yard will be picked up sometime next week.
