YOU STILL HAVE TIME to serve as an ELECTION JUDGE!
Great meeting with the Mount Rainier Board of Elections members last night. We STILL NEED a few more members. If you can spare about 40 hours a YEAR serving your community, WE NEED YOU. The beauty of serving on this Committee is that you only have to work a lot of hours (January to May 30 during odd years) during an election year! The City pays a stipend for election day, and provides light refreshments.
FREE TRAINING on being an election judge, and getting your neighbors registered to vote! Inbox me here; send an email to email@example.com or call City Hall and provide your name, address, and other contact information. I promise to get back to you ASAP. Mayor and Council will be appointing the next Board of Elections on February 17 at 7:00pm.
TRAINING will be provided by the Prince George's County Board of Elections on Monday, February 23. Transportation will be provided at 8:00am to their office for this valuable training. Interested? Please meet us at Mount Rainier's City Hall at 8:00am, and meet those other wonderful volunteers who will be carrying out this year's election!
The NEXT meeting of the Board of Elections is Monday, February 23 at 7:00pm.
As a long-time resident of Mount Rainier and a homeowner, it is important to me that municipal government be inclusive of all of its residents. It is equally important that information be communicated through all possible channel so that residents can get involved. It is also important for residents to volunteer and serve on committees, commissions, boards and task forces. I truly believe that municipal government is the government closes to the people, and as such should be easily accessible. This BLOG is another effort to reach out to the residents of Mount Rainier.
