Reportback from PB Gardens Candidate Forum

Image from the flyer handed out
Our presence was noticed. Thanks to the folks who came to help hand out flyers and hold a banner out front of the event.

We got over 200 flyers out to Gardens residents at the library and people attending the forum.
At least one person noted that he had also received the mailer we sent in December, and encouraged us to keep him and his neighbors in Palm Beach Country Estates in the loop as the development creeps further west, closer to their community.

We had a brief encounter with law enforcement, which resulted in library staff explaining that we could request permission to table any time we want out front of the high traffic library (for future reference... could be a great general outreach spot).

A local activist from PB Gardens, who has come to several meetings and protests, went inside the well-attended event and got in a question about development, with much support from the audience.

Let's keep the pressure on!
