Over a year ago, I filed my paperwork to run to represent the people of the 6th District in the US House of Representatives. Ever since, I have been working all over the district to build a grassroots movement so we can win this race and grow the Democratic Party so we win many more races in the future. With less than 2 months to go until the primary election, that work is paying off.
I am extraordinarily proud of Team Benac. Over 450 residents of our district have signed up to volunteer. These amazing individuals are donating their time and putting themselves out there to demonstrate their commitment to creating the change we need to ensure a better future for our neighbors.
This is the moment when we demonstrate to the district that we are the most dedicated, organized, and hardest working campaign in the race. We show up, listen, and offer support, and we’re building coalitions that cross every barrier.
We are now canvassing every single day, attending party meetings, hosting events, joining parades and festivals, meeting voters anywhere they choose, and using candidate forums to distinguish our clear progressive agenda. In addition to all of our field activities I continue to write and post detailed policy statements, because I believe voters have the right to know what candidates will do once elected.
I hope to see you at some of Team Benac’s events in the next couple weeks. For a more complete listing please check out our Facebook page. If you are interested in joining one of our canvassing teams, please let us know—we’re in the field every day! Here are a few events coming up in the next few days:
Tonight: This is What Democracy Tastes Like (Camp Ronora, Watervliet, 6pm)
District Healthcare Forum (Theo & Stacy's Portage Rd, 6/26, 6pm)
Coffee Hour with David (Café Tosi, St. Joseph, 6/26, 11am)
Beers with Benac (Nelson’s Saloon, Three Oaks, 6/26, 6pm)
Working for you,
