The Berney Campaign has had a busy weekend out in the community. On Friday night, Joe's long-time friend and community leader Pat Riggs-Henson hosted a House Party to give people in the community the opportunity to meet and speak with Joe. Several leaders in our community came out to hear Joe's future vision for leading Springfield, including Springfield City Councilor Leonard Stoehr and Springfield House representative John Lively. He addressed the crowd on an array of County-wide issues from access to Healthcare to affordable housing.
On Saturday morning, AFSCME helped launch a Labor led canvassing event to knock doors out in the Springfield community. Nearly 30 Labor Union members showed out, with several other volunteers joining as well.
Joe told the crowd, "This kind of grassroots energy is exactly what we need to make change possible. I cannot thank you all enough for making an effort to be here."
Joe Berney has received endorsements from nearly every Labor Union in the area.
After addressing the volunteers at AFSCME, he felt compelled to attend the March for Our Lives event at the Federal Courthouse in Eugene.
"This is truly an awesome event and amazing moment to be a part of." Joe said while in attendance.
Coming up this week there will be two Community Forums open to the public. The first will be on Wednesday, March 28th from 4:30-6pm at the First United Methodist Church at 1376 Olive St in Eugene.
The second will be hosted by Grupo Latino de Accion Directa on Thursday, March 29th from 6-7:30pm at the Springfield Public Library, 225 5th Street.
