PUBLIC FORUMS: NOT JUST FOR THE LEGISLATIVE SESSION

More articles »

Now that the legislative session is over, there will be fewer public forums and town hall meetings with legislators.  However, we will continue to track these opportunties, as well as meetings to discuss Medicaid managed care and other opportunities for public input.  These are excellent opportunities for your voice to be heard. Click here to find a public forum, town hall meeting or other event near you.

Lots of people think you need to be able to give candidates money to go to their campaign events.  This is simply not true.  Candidates want to meet people, and earn their votes.  Contact your local Republican and Democratic party chairs or the candidates themselves to find out when candidates will be having events in your area.  Meet them - talk to them about your priorities - or just introduce yourself.  If you like the person, and you like their answers, help them on their campaign. March in a parade, help with mailings, make phone calls, or go door-to-door.  There are lots of opportunities - just let them know you want to help!
