Southwest Apartment Outreach & Municipal Candidate Free-For-All

First we will hear from Greg Wythe, Director of the APT PAC. Greg and this newly-formed PAC are focused on increasing Democratic voter turnout from area apartments.

We will then move right into an extended candidate introduction session. Each Democratic municipal candidate is invited to come and speak for the allotted time (determined by the number of candidates in attendance). Please note the qualifier of "Democratic." If you are trying to consider yourself to be an "Independent" or even a "Populist," please don't waste our time or yours. We will be supplying everyone in attendance a "cheat sheet" with each candidate's party affiliation.

Please plan on attending--this will be a chance for all members and guests to help make a decision for whom to cast their ballot in November.

Big thanks to Diana Alexander, candidate for Harris County Commissioner Precinct 3 for being our sponsor for this event!
