The PVA executive committee will determine the next Unified Action at their May 10, 2018, meeting. Suggestions for a Unified Action can be communicated to Cheryl Frank or any member of the Executive Committee. All Unified Actions are indexed here.
April 26 Meeting
The April meeting was informative and engaging. We heard from many candidates and their supporters. PVA is obviously the place to be if you want to get to know the candidates. We learned about a bunch of great events coming up. We also heard about other topics, including ranked choice voting, upcoming candidate forums, books to read, and the importance of avoiding divisive campaigning throughout the primary season. You had to be there, but if you weren’t, all events announced at the meeting are posted in the sidebar calendar and the full recap is posted here.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, May 24, 2018, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
