Hello friends and neighbors!
I have been so overwhelmed by all of the support and encouragement I have received throughout this campaign process--I can’t believe we’re just ten days away from Election Day!
I am so looking forward to finally rolling up my sleeves and digging into the work of the Cheverly Council--I know I've spoken to many of you, discussed at the forum, and posted online about exploring a number of key issues including:
Maintenance of alleyways
Code enforcement (including loose/unleashed dogs)
Traffic and pedestrian safety
...and so much more!
Of course, before we can start to have some impact in these areas, I need to actually get elected! And in the days between now and May 6, the best way to make that happen is the way most good things happen: by chatting with our neighbors. There are two opportunities this weekend to do just that!
Saturday: Campaign Kickoff and Birthday Celebration!
If you are free this coming Saturday, 27 April, I would love to see you at Boyd Park for Mayoral Candidate Beth MacKenzie's Campaign Kickoff event.
From 12 to 1, we'll eat lunch, and you'll have a chance to chat with candidates and engage with neighbors on issues important to you.
Starting at 1, groups will spread out across Cheverly to encourage neighbors to Get Out the Vote on May 6. If you've been hesitant to volunteer to knock on doors or canvass, this would be a perfect opportunity to give it a try in a way that is friendly, low-pressure, and with a partner or two. It looks like the weather will be perfect for walking those Cheverly hills.
If door knocking isn't your thing, I hope you'll still join us for lunch, or for snacks from 5 to 6!
Here's a link to the facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1219757034846027/
Sunday: Meet and Greet!
Another opportunity to engage with neighbors will be happening on Sunday evening: Alan & Maureen Dwyer will be hosting a meet and greet for Beth MacKenzie from 6-8pm. Come with your questions for Beth and me and enjoy discussions about the town we love, its challenges and its bright future. Refreshments will be provided.
Al and Maureen Dwyer
3120 Laurel Avenue
Sunday, 28 April, 6-8pm
Hope to see you there!
Now that we’re in the home stretch, word of mouth and getting out the vote are going to be key to making some positive change in Cheverly! If you're interested in helping with door knocking in Ward 3, either on Saturday or another time in the next two weeks, please use the Sign Up Genius link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050F4FAEAC2DABFD0-bryner.
I'm so excited about the potential for our town, and I know from all the conversations I've had recently that you are too. Thanks as always for your support; I know that together we can accomplish amazing things in Cheverly!
Hope to see you Saturday and/or Sunday, and if not, looking forward to seeing you on May 6th!
