Sep 24 – Endorsement Meeting

At this month’s general meeting coming we begin to consider endorsements for the 2018 races.

The two endorsements we will consider at our September meeting currently only have a single Democrat running. The first is for School Board District B. The board Vice-President Kevin Beiser has requested our endorsement, and given his hard work as our incumbent in the position, we will consider District B at our September meeting. Instead of holding a seat, the second race we will consider the potential gain of a seat that we Democrats have not …
