Campaign Highlights, October 5, 2020
ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL Throughout the past week Thomasina has held strategy sessions with "Nasty Women" county groups as they prepare for a caravan through southern Indiana and the Illinois border. Watch for more information soon!
Also, the Clay County Nasty Women are spearheading fundraising for radio advertising, and Thomasina thanks them for their energy and dedication.
9/28: Thomasina met with the Nasty Women of Spencer, Dubois, and Perry counties. She enjoyed coordinating efforts for multiple campaigns with these enthusiastic groups!
9/29: Thomasina visited Vincennes for the Nasty Women of Knox County Meet & Greet in Gregg Park. A great time was had by all as they discussed election strategy and upcoming plans. After this event Thomasina joined a Zoom meeting with the Vigo County Democrats.
9/30: The Vigo County Democrats welcomed Thomasina and State Attorney General candidate Jonathan Weinzapfel for a meeting, followed by drive-though yard sign distribution. The day concluded with discussion of election plans over an al fresco dinner at Mogger's Restaurant and Pub.
10/1: Acting in her capacity as precinct committee person, Thomasina attended the Owen County Democratic Party monthly meeting where she voted in Vice Chair Anita Morgan, who is also running for County Council. Congratulations to Owen County's new Vice Chair!
10/2: In keeping with COVID-19 safety guidelines, Thomasina and several other candidates joined the Indiana Democratic Women's Caucus as they held their monthly “First Friday” meeting in Zoom format.
10/3: The Nasty Women of Owen County met with Thomasina to make plans for distributing information about Democratic candidates and supporting them as early in-person voting commences on October 6.
10/4: Thomasina attended the Rome Festival to raise funds for maintaining the court house and clock tower. This historic southern Indiana town was founded in 1818. The celebration offered a great opportunity for Thomasina to see old friends, family, and former neighbors. She also had the chance to talk with many constituents and stopped by several farms to chat with farmers who are having longer harvests due to rain in the southern part of the state. Thomasina is especially proud of Rome citizens who protected their community by consistently wearing face masks at the festival.
A road trip to southern Indiana wouldn't be complete without stopping by to see relatives. Thomasina took a break from the campaign trail to enjoy Sunday dinner and a visit with her family, especially her new nephew!
WHERE TO SEE THOMASINA THIS WEEK 10/6: Thomasina will join other Owen County Democratic candidates to vote at her home precinct in Spencer at 8:00 AM eastern time on the first day of early polling. She invites everyone to join her if their health permits it.
After voting on October 6, she will drive to Evansville for a Get Out the Vote Rally from 11-2 o'clock central time.
