Despite the freezing temperatures, political types all over Pennsylvania are beginning to look ahead to spending a great deal of time outside in the coming weeks. Next Tuesday, February 13 marks the first day of the 2007 petition period when candidates for public office may collect signatures on nominating petitions - with much of this work being done by going door-to-door despite the weather conditions.
If you who live in Washington County, please consider attending either or both of these Petition Kick-Off Events for Mike Neville, an excellent candidate for Washington County Commissioner:
Petition Kick-Off Event #1: Sunday, February 11, 5 to 7 p.m. @ Panera Bread, Washington, PA (near Sam's Club and Wal-Mart)
Petition Kick-Off Event #2: Monday, February 12, 8 to 10 p.m. @ Atria's Restaurant & Tavern, McMurray, PA (in Kmart Plaza)
At both of these events, Mike will be on-hand with petitions, circulating instructions and street lists. He'll also be able to answer any questions you might have about the campaign.
Interested Washington County residents are also cordially invited to attend a "Meet the Candidate" Night / Petition-Signing Party for Mike to be held at my apartment in McDonald on Monday, February 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. There's no cost to attend this casual event. My place is at 302 West Lincoln Ave., Apt. #4, in McDonald. Please consider joining us -- everyone is welcome!
The Washington County GOP also is having a Petition Kick-Off Open House on Tuesday, February 20 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Washington County GOP HQ at 75 East Maiden St. in Washington, PA. Mike will be among the candidates speaking beginning at 7:30 p.m. (Update: This was rescheduled from February 13 to February 20 due to the snow.)
