Our Representative candidate JP Hollembaek has had a large number of signatures challenged, and it looks like an uphill battle to get on the ballot. His district was recently gerrymandered, and a lot of people didn't realize they're now in a different district. We had a film festival over the weekend. The turnout was disappointing but we met some new potential members. I guess people like talks better than free movies.
