Bas Bleu (121 North Patterson)
We are drawing close to the busiest time of the year. Election season is upon us. We will hear from State Representative Dexter Sharper on upcoming legislative schedule (he is unopposed this year), early voting, GOTV events and more. Lowndes County Commissioner Demarcus Marshall will give us a wrap-up on his first term and welcomes your input on his upcoming term (he also is un-opposed). And Valdosta City Councilwoman Sandra Tooley will talk to us about her first year in office. Our elected officials can give us special insights into how we can help to get out the vote and elect those who represent our entire community. We will also hear about local GOTV events, phone banks, and more. If you ever thought of being involved in the Democratic process, now is the time.
