The Electoral Committee has recommended State Senate candidate Paul Prescod for endorsement by the local, but it is ultimately up to members to decide. At this Saturday’s GM, members will have the opportunity to hear from Paul and cast a vote on his endorsement. You can view Paul’s DSA questionnaire and submit a question for him during the candidate forum at the General Meeting using this form.
If you’re still looking for more DSA after the meeting, we hope you’ll join us for a post-GM Happy Hour at Love City Brewing in Callowhill at 4:30pm.
