Nearly 40 people attended the Open House at the Marion County Democratic Headquarters on Sunday afternoon.
District 28 House candidate Megan Suhr addressed the crowd, stressing her experience and why she’d be a good representative for the district. She also took the opportunity to remind constituents that early voting will soon begin.
“Our main message is to let people know that the end of September, absentee ballot requests and vote-by-mails will be out, so we need the support now.”
Suhr add it was also a time to thank and honor people for their support, like 90-year-old volunteer Ted Eller.
“Ted’s one of those that shows up first thing in the morning to see how he can help and what he can do.”
Suhr says Eller was among those who helped sell watermelon at a RAGBRAI booth recently.
“He’s just a fantastic supporter and great value to us.”
Suhr says campaigns can’t be run without the help of good volunteers.
Other candidates at the forum were Congressman Dave Loebsack, and Iowa State Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald. Stay tuned to KNIA/KRLS or visit the our website for stories on these candidates tomorrow and Thursday.
