Action Ridge; Thursday 8/9/2018
100 Courtland Ave – Lower Level
We promote principles of democracy: inclusion, respect, equity and the health of our planet. Truth Matters!
Our core group made the decision to focus on getting ready for the fall Primaries by getting out the vote, and educating voters about the upcoming election. Therefore, the August 9th meeting will be a planning session to prepare for the fall. There will be two areas of emphasis.
- Voter registration, education and turnout.
- Candidate forums and/or information about the candidates
Please attend on the 9th to share your ideas about how Action Ridge can best meet its goal of preparing for the fall elections!!
