Walk the District
May 24, 25, 26, 2018
U.S. Congressional Candidate Stephen Perenich (District 12-FL) and a team (The Team) of supporters have committed to walk over 47 miles with Perenich across District 12 to disseminate his ideas and hear public feedback from May 24th through May 26th. Joining him (during varying segments) will be: his 2 oldest sons, Michael and Sam (in college); his brother Gregory and son; supporters; issue advisers; friends; and guest constituents from the areas visited (the public is welcomed and encouraged to join). High School Student Volunteers/Advocates from the recent March for our Lives event, which Perenich recently supported, are also scheduled to appear for a Town Hall event. It is Perenich’s goal to meet a diverse set of LOCAL businesses, charities and their patrons, and to hear and engage with the community for the evaluation of the needs of the District on the street level. The Team will carry signs representing issues important to District 12 residents, as well as Stephen’s campaign. Each day, three local businesses will become Meet and Greet locations for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A Town Hall meeting will be organized at/for each dinner gathering, where relevant issues, including public feedback and interaction, will be discussed and explored. Perenich will then spend each night in a local motel or bed and breakfast. The final day will include a celebration at the Perenich Caulfield Avril and Noyes Law firm. Yard signs will be placed down the walk path as permitted.
