On April 14, Precinct 34 invited Punta Gorda Vice Mayor Gary Wein to a neighborhood coffee and conversation event. This event is one of many being planned and held around Charlotte County. The
county DEC’s goal is to hold at least one event in every one of the county’s eighty precincts this year.
Precinct captains are planning and holding the events for their precincts to focus on local concerns and to organize party efforts and campaigns, especially with the upcoming mid-term elections in mind. Currently, the Vote by Mail initiative is being promoted.
Precinct 34 is located in Punta Gorda. Vice-mayor Wein discussed Punta Gorda’s growth issues as well as providing insights about regional and statewide campaigns. Using both statistical information and his experience, he talked with event participants about current conditions and future projections for our area, including tips about what local citizens can do to have their voices heard and make a difference in our communities.
