I held my first campaign event in cooperation with Rianna Czech for State Senate 50. Hatch Hollow, a local art store and gallery hosted the event for us. We had a fairly low turnout which could have been discouraging, but I was pleased with the conversations that took place.
For such a small group, it was fairly diverse when it comes to political leanings. This is what gives me hope: people who disagree with each other on many things coming together and finding common ground. With today's political climate, it was a welcome experience.
I look forward to many more events in the community and to meeting as many people as I can.
