In early September we launched the Beyer Ideas Forums, a weekly series of presentations, followed by Q&As, on our most pressing policy areas. The crowds at these events, held around the 8th District, have proved what we've always known - the residents of the 8th are the best and the brightest in the country. We want to make sure you mark your calendars for our upcomingIdeas Forums - the next of which is TONIGHT.
Everytown for Gun Safety and their partner Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America just announced their first-ever list of endorsements. I am so excited to let you know that Don is on it! Everytown and Moms Demand are incredible organizations dedicated to fighting for common-sense gun laws. In the words of Shannon Watts, the Founder of Moms Demand, “We’re bringing this issue to the voting booth. Moms and women are going to vote to keep our communities safe from gun violence, in this election and in all elections ahead.”
People are voting in the 8th District. Our team is reaching out to voters on the phone, and door-to-door while canvassing - we need to make sure they are voting Beyer! We have an amazing team working, night and day, to make sure everyone in the 8th District is ready to vote. Can you help them get the word out? Do you need to vote early? Don't worry - you have a few options.
I want to tell you about another of our Eight Ideas in the 8th! Last week began our weekly announcement of sensible policy ideas that I will pursue if elected to Virginia’s 8th district on November 4th. Today’s idea highlights my intention to work on economic improvements to help the most needy. Our nation lacks sufficient affordable housing, driving hundreds of thousands of households further into poverty by forcing them to pay higher rent than they can afford.
