Block Walking on March 21

Walking blocks, meeting voters, and reminding folks of upcoming election dates is critical to ensure a good turnout on election day, and to get the word out about the candidates we support. We ask you to partner with us to reach the Kerrville voters and to ask them for their vote in this May’s election. Meeting these voters face-to-face is critical!

We will host another “official” block-walking session on Thursday, March 21. Stop by the campaign office (625 Water Street — next door to Grape Juice) after work to pick up a packet and instructions. Or call/text Kristan at 830-683-7097 to pick up a route at a different time.


We need your shoe leather! Please help us to ensure a victory in May by volunteering as a block-walker in your neighborhood. It’s fun to meet new people and walk through your community with your friends and neighbors. And it’s absolutely critical to get the word out. Thanks for your help!
