I hope a number of you had the chance to Zoom into the Southern Shores Town Council candidates’ forum hosted last night by the League of Women Voters of Dare County. If not, the League will soon post a video online that you can watch. I’ll give you the URL for the video as soon as it is available.
The candidates gave opening and closing statements and answered about 10 questions. I believe I came across fairly well, but it is your impressions that count. I certainly had an opportunity to apply my knowledge of recent Southern Shores Town Council history, the Town Code of Ordinances, and relevant North Carolina law.
My dog Augie may have made the biggest splash last night. After patiently waiting for me to finish up my forum business—I sat in front of my laptop for 2 ½ hours—Augie couldn’t stand any more neglect and started jumping up on my chair. I finally just picked him up and held him, while I was still visible via Zoom. I can’t tell you how many text messages and emails I received afterward about Augie’s appearance! He was a hit.
In other matters, I signed off today on the final proof of my campaign mailer, which should go out to all Southern Shores residents tomorrow and hit your mailboxes starting Saturday. Yay! Please feel free to contact me about its content or about any other campaign-related business at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 261-0269.
Please let me know, too, if you do not receive a mailer by next Wednesday. I have extras and can send you one. There were a few issues with the mailing list, and I am concerned that people may be overlooked.
My campaign team and I are now gearing up for the meet-and-greet Saturday, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., at my rental cottage at 231 Ocean Blvd. in Southern Shores. It will be a covid-conscious happy-hour gathering with neighbors, a time to relax, mingle, and talk about the town. I look forward to seeing you there!
Warm wishes, Ann
