CINDY SCHWEDLER CAMPAIGN SUPPORT

Deb Carmichael, ICDP member pulled a small group of volunteers together to have a table at Oscoda's busy annual art and craft show. Deb said, “(We had) a great spot in the hallway where everyone had to funnel past! Lots of literature was distributed (and) lots of comments from people glad we were there! Signs lined the window behind the table.” Thanks so much to this group for taking the time to promote our Democratic candidate for Iosco County Board of Commissioners in the 2nd district, Cindy Schwedler!
