To The Editor:
Poppy Sias-Hernandez, candidate for State Senate 34th District, will be hosted by Flying Bear Books at a Meet and Greet on Thursday, May 31 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Flying Bear Books is located at 79 State Road in downtown Newaygo. The event is open to the public.
Ms. Hernandez has been a community leader throughout her professional career, serving in non profit youth oriented organizations as well as Muskegon Public Schools. Her campaign platforms include supporting public education, improving access to general and mental health care, protecting natural resources and supporting small businesses, among others. "I want to strengthen the connections between people in the community and the policy makers in Lansing."
John Reeves, owner of Flying Bear Books, was inspired by Ms. Hernandez, stating, "After hearing Poppy at another meet and greet I was impressed with her message and desire to represent her constituents." Mr. Reeves expressed a need to become more involved in our political system than just voting. "Flying Bear Books is a friendly place to ask questions and get to know Ms. Hernandez. I hope many community members will take this opportunity to come and meet her."
Ms. Hernandez will be vying for the Democratic win in the August primary against Collene Lamonte.
Information about the meet and greet can be obtained from Flying Bear Books at 231.414.4056.
