My name is Olivia Daniels, and I am the cofounder of the OBX Young Democrats, a group formed this summer. Our goal is to educate our peers about local politics and work with Democratic candidates to promote their platforms and campaigns. We are passionate about anti-drilling legislation (it could always come back if Trump is elected!), socially liberal policies (down with HB2!), and sustainable economic policies that encourage equal opportunities for all. Additionally, as many of us are graduates of the Dare County Public School System, we are committed to improving education in the area as outlined in the Democratic Party platform.
This upcoming Tuesday (July 26) we will be hosting an Elect to Protect Meet and Greet in Nags Head at the residence of Colleen Oaksmith (3625 S Virginia Dare Trail). The event will take place from 4pm until 7pm. It is designed to encompass an environmental focus and provide a casual environment in which young people can talk to candidates and learn about the issues at hand.
We would love it if you could join us for the Elect to Protect event. Included is the official flier for the event.
