How Can I Contribute?
Getting the message out to voters throughout our great county is both challenging and somewhat expensive. In addition to word-of-mouth and a door-to-door campaign, we plan to use direct mail, roadside signs, as well as, online and social media advertising to get the word out. Please help us inform our citizens.
