Local woman organizes community meet & greet for political candidates
LOCKWOOD, Nev. (KOLO) - A community Meet & Greet Bar-B-Que happened on Sunday in Lockwood. Nearly 60 candidates running for political office came out to meet the potential constituents of Storey County.
The event was organized by Lisa Holleman, who says she wanted to get people inspired to vote and thought the best way to do so was by organizing an event for private citizens to get to know the people who want to serve their community.
“I care about Storey County. That’s my issue. And there are people who are running for office that are really good on all parties and I want to get word out,” said Holleman, event organizer and Storey County resident.
Attendees got to enjoy burgers and hot dogs on a nice, sunny day and got to mingle and chat with various candidates. The election hopefuls included candidates running for Governor, U.S. Senate, Storey County Sheriff and more.
Primary elections are coming up in June.
