On March 25, the MDO held a successful Meet & Greet at the Pike Run Clubhouse. Montgomerians came out to meet their neighbors and talk politics while the kids made crafts and enjoyed the playground. Attendees also got the chance to meet Sadaf Jaffer, the Democratic candidate for Montgomery Township Committee, as well as Laurie Poppe and Roy Freiman, Hillsborough residents running for the District 16 NJ State Senate and Assembly seats. Shanel Robinson, Democratic candidate for Somerset County Freeholder also dropped in to talk with everyone.
Guests enjoyed refreshments and conversation, and were treated to three motivating speeches by the candidates about the importance of local politics. They spoke about the amazing grassroots energy of the progressive movement since Donald Trump came into office. Candidates also discussed the necessity to vote Democratic “down the line,” instead of just at the national level, and to get fired up about getting out the vote as the November election nears.
This well-attended event proved that Democratic politics are alive and well in town!
