Campaigning, just like everything else, is shifting and changing by the hour, it seems. Each day, I come up with a strategy on how to best focus my on-the-ground efforts to reach voters, and each day, it seems that my contingency plan has a contingency plan.
All six of my house parties have been canceled, which is where a bulk of fundraising is done. Canvassing is out. Not doing these things has been the hardest choice to make as a candidate, but my health and the health of my community is far more important.
At this time, putting up yard signs and dropping off flyers on porches is the strategy. If you live in Columbia County and would like one of my yard signs, please text me at 503-928-2151. I do all of the work for you and I do not need to knock on your door or disturb you in any way.
If you have not donated to my campaign yet and you eagerly look towards the future with me, please consider chipping in today. You can do that here: www.brandee2020.com/contribute.html
Today, I had the pleasure of being a panelist for “Mock Congressional Hearings” at Scappoose High School for the seniors’ Civics class!

I took home a copy of the January 2020 service reduction survey that we are all supposed to fill out. Do you need a copy? If you email me at email@example.com, I can email you the forms.
