May 18 —10:00 amJoin us at our monthly meeting to hear updates from officers and auxiliaries. Then pitch in to help clean and organize headquarters.
The monthly meeting is planned for an hour, 10:00 am – 11:00 am, Spring Cleaning will continue from 11:00 am on. There’s plenty to do, from organizing our storage room, to working on the grounds. Wear work clothes and pack a lunch.
There’s much to do to be ready for 2020 and getting headquarters prepared for meetings, training and candidate forums is an important part of our work. Democratic Candidates in AshevilleAs candidates hold kickoffs and other rallies/large events in Buncombe, we’ll do our best to help keep you informed. To do that, you’ll start to see more official candidate events on our social media events list and our calendar at buncombedems.org/events.Candidate events we share do not represent an endorsement but rather our goal to help connect you with candidates so that you can learn about issues and positions from each candidate. We’re fortunate to have so many qualified candidates for local offices as well as statewide and federal office, and we hope you’ll engage with them between now and March 2020 as we get ready to win back our state next November.Jeff Rose, BCDP Chair
