Legislative Action Day
More activity from our very busy 3rd District - August 4 is Legislative Action Day. This is a chance for 3rd District Activists to meet with their representatives.
If anyone is interested, please use the contact information below to send an email to Dare GOP, so we may give a headcount to our 3rd District Chair, Dave Wickersham.

Entire delegation has been invited to 1-2 PM meeting but know that some members may have a tight schedule and will only be able to stop by or stay for a part of the meeting. Be prepared to present your legislative concerns in a short amount of time (see Legislative Goals on page 1). Water and coffee will be provided in this meeting.
