Time & Location
About The Event
Join Us For Our One Big Virtual Fundraiser! Tickets here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/making-history-in-november
We’ll share updates from the campaign, discuss my vision for Kent County, hear from Senator Winnie Brinks and Representative David LaGrand about what they’re doing for us in Lansing, and maybe share a virtual drink.
Our campaign is going extremely well! I’m having a lot of fun working hard to win the seat. We are out knocking doors and talking with voters, placing yard signs, being active on social media, and we’ve just sent our first campaign mailer. But there is much more work to be done. We’d like to send out two more mailers and pay for social media ads to let voters know about me and my vision for Kent County. To meet that goal, we need to raise at least $6000. That’s why we need your help!
Here’s what’s at stake. Democrats have a unique opportunity to win a majority on the Kent County Commission. Currently, there are 8 Democrats and 11 Republicans, so we need only two victories – something Democrats have done each of the last two election cycles – to achieve an historic majority and earn the gavel.
In 2018, Governor Gretchen Whitmer won 48% of the vote in my district. That means, we are on the verge of winning this seat! But, the Republicans know that as well and they’re pouring in big money to hold the seat. But we have to win. The only way for Democrats to earn a majority on the Commission is to win my district.
With a Democratic majority on the Kent County Commission, we can implement a bold vision: protecting the environment and sending zero waste directly to our landfill, implementing a Growth by Choice land use strategy, improving parks, expanding early childhood development and education, improving access to healthcare services, supporting labor, and supporting programs vital to our vulnerable populations.
So please, join us for our one and only event to raise money for the campaign and help us meet our fundraising goal.
Please share this with your friends so we can have a successful fundraiser and use the funds to win the election.
I hope to see you on Zoom October 6 at 8 pm!
