June 2022 Kent Dems Newsletter
In this newsletter:
Letter from the Editor
Happy June from everyone here at the Kent County Democratic Party. We have a big win to celebrate! A huge congratulations to the newest member of the Michigan House of Representatives in District 74, Carol Glanville! Carol proved that a great candidate, a motivated volunteer base, and a divided GOP can make a challenging seat attainable! Many thanks to everyone who knocked doors, used our phone banks, and donated money. Every bit of it mattered.

We'll need a similar level of support for the rest of our candidates this cycle with the devastating news that the Supreme Court is likely to overturn Roe vs. Wade. This court case has been the bulwark against several decades of relentless Republican assault on the rights of women. We must ensure that Michigan is a place where a woman can exercise her right to choose and Lansing keeps its hands off their bodies. We can win this fight at the ballot box because, as Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist reminded us at our 2022 Kent Dems Gala, when Democrats vote, we win!
Volunteer Opportunities

Petition Signing Drive-Thru
On Saturday, June 25, 2022, 10am - 2pm, we will be holding a Petition Signing Drive-Thru at the Kent Dems office. We will have many of the ballot measure petitions to sign, including Promote the Vote, Reproductive Freedom, and Mi Right to Vote. We aim to make this as easy as possible for "easy in, easy out" petition signing. We are getting close to the July 11 deadline, so please let everyone you know that hasn't had the chance to sign these petitions to stop by.

Are you researching which petitions to sign? Check out the ballot initiative signing recommendations of our KCDP Endorsement Committee.
