Dear Brian Gunn,
Hope this newsletter finds you healthy and happy looking forward to the last 20 days of action before the election! Our next general meeting will be Wednesday, October 21st on Zoom, this upcoming Wednesday night! We are doing things a bit differently at this meeting, including bumping it up one week to give everyone plenty of time afterwards to turn in their completed ballots. Expect an informative and fun night. Don't forget to pre-register and bring your ballot!! 

Guest speakers this month include, Julie Anne Kempf, Chair of 46th LD Democrats and an expert on election administration. Our 31st LD State Rep candidates, Thomas Clark and Katie Young, will also be stopping by to check-in and give us a final update on their campaigns. 

Please see our website for a complete AGENDA. See everyone Wednesday!

Are you a member of the 31st?
Annual dues are $31 per calendar year, and are a significant portion of our operating budget. While our general meetings are open to all, only dues-paying members have voting privileges. Reduced dues are available in limited income situations that include, but aren’t limited to: veteran, senior and/or student status, with a minimum of $5 that ensures full rights and privileges.

While dues have historically made up the majority of our budget, we are stepping up our fight to make the 31st District a truly inclusive, equitable, and welcoming place to live. Please consider helping us achieve our goals by contributing today!
