The candidates attending included: Olivia Babis, State Senate Dist. 23; Tony Mowry, House Dist. 74; Wesley Beggs, Sarasota County Commission Dist 4; Nick Guy, Sarasota County School Board Dist. 1; and Jane Goodwin, Sarasota Count School Board Dist 5.
(Ruta Jouniari, Sarasota County Commission Dist. 2 and
Shirley Brown, Sarasota County School Board Dist 4 had planned to be there but were unable to be.)
Englewood Indivisible had previously endorsed all 7 candidates.
We wrote 1,000 postcard invitations to North Port voters and a number of the people who attended said they'd learned of the event by postcard!
Our members provided beautiful refreshments -- and afterwards picked everything up every last scrap of evidence that we were there.
