We did it! Now, let's do it again for Eileen Higgins

We did it! Our friend Eileen Higgins came in first in the County Commission election tonight. No one expected us to even make the runoff, but together we knocked on over 20,000 doors and made over 15,000 phone calls. This is how we win. Now, we head into a June 19 runoff election against Republican Zoraida Barreiro. And there is no time to waste! Vote by mail ballots get mailed out next week and early voting starts June 4.
