Alan Feirer, our Democratic candidate for Madison County Supervisor, is hosting a series of Listening Post events in communities around the county starting tomorrow. He is very interested in meeting people from all walks of life and hearing their joys and concerns about the place we call home.
How can you help? If you know Alan and are already supporting him, please show up to any of the Listening Post events you are available to attend. When he is busy conversing with an individual and there are others who want to talk about their concerns, you can be available to listen and share them with Alan. Also, if you have friends in any of these communities, let them know Alan will be in their area and wants to hear from them. Each of these is set up as an individual event on his Facebook page that you could share (Alan Feirer for Madison County Iowa Supervisor). And of course, if you haven’t met Alan yet and want to bend his ear, here’s a good opportunity! He can also be reached anytime at email@example.com or 515-468-1969.
