Welcome to Ann Sjoerdsma’s website for her campaign for Southern Shores Town Council.
The election is Nov. 2, and early voting starts Oct. 14. In addition to a new Town Council member, Southern Shores voters will be electing a new mayor.
Our home page will feature a blog that connects to our Facebook page, which is located at http://www.facebook.com/annsjoerdsmaforcouncil. We will start posting news items after Labor Day.
Because of the local surge in COVID-19 cases of the Delta variant, Ann’s campaign will be largely run electronically. Ann and members of her campaign team will not be going door-to-door to meet people and talk town issues and concerns. This vital give-and-take will be managed instead through email and online exchanges.
We are still considering a COVID-cautious outdoors meet-and-greet for Ann on the oceanfront and will let you know the date, time, location, and other details ASAP.
We already know that the Southern Shores Candidate Forum hosted by the Dare County League of Women Voters will be virtual, although we do not know yet what form it will take. Please mark your calendars for Wed., Oct. 14, at 6:30 p.m. We will give you details about how you may tune into the forum when the League advises us. After the event, a videotape will be available for viewing on You Tube.
We will keep you updated here and on the Facebook page about Ann’s campaign and the election schedule. Please check back with us.
