Weekend of Action with Kristina Shelton, AD 90th
1 Year to Win Weekend of Action
We know that when we elect Democrats, we elect trusted leaders who will work hard to improve access to health care, education, and prosperity for all.
November 6th-7th, 2021 begins the one-year countdown to turn Brown County blue in 2022. And we want to show the community that Democrats are fired up and ready to win!!
Will you help us reach out to voters? The more voters we contact, the more we can help engage our neighbors in the upcoming elections.
