The Democrats’ booth at the Benton Franklin County Fair was a success. Thanks to all those who staffed shifts and a special thanks to Richard Badalamente, Becky Voll, and Jennifer Goulet for getting things organized.
People registered to vote, signed up for our mailing list and just stopped by to chat. It was nice to hear what people are thinking and to have a presence. There is a write-up about the setup process on the 8th LD blog.
