2016 Accomplishments

We are pleased to share with you our 2016 Accomplishments (and since then we have been even busier!)

 

Voter Outreach

 

  • Endorsed candidates for various municipal elections.
  • Chapter members made over 2,000 phone calls, assisted with literature drops, and provided financial support for the chapter’s endorsed candidates in the St. Petersburg city council election.
