Post on Front Porch Forum

When I set sail on our campaign for mayor I knew I couldn’t do it alone. It has required a team with a shared mission of progress, one that is willing to make calls, knock on their neighbor's doors, and tell friends about the campaign.

I hope I can count on you to post on Front Porch Forum or social media on my behalf. You can use the post below, make your own post, or edit the words below to fit your message on why you are supporting our All Hands on Deck campaign.


Thank you for taking action,

Joan Shannon
