Happy Hour w/ Gwenn Berud (virtual)
September 24 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm CDT
Gwenn Berud for TX Senate: Hi! You, yes you, are invited to join Team Burud for a virtual town hall and meet and greet. Bring your questions, concerns, and ideas to Gwenn. Please RSVP here for your zoom link: https://www.mobilize.us/burudfortexas/event/413125/
Why virtual? Gwenn and the team have children who are not eligible to receive vaccines and have weighed the considerations for this group event and decided it is best held in a virtual format.
Why happy hour? Well, after a long school week and following Texas politics, kicking back on the couch and enjoying your favorite beverage is encouraged. We’ll have more formal events in the future, but this one is meant to be casual! And “whine and wine” just sounds less productive!
Who is Gwenn? Gwenn Burud is running for the Texas Senate in district 9. She ran in 2018, stepping up when everyone else thought this district was unwinnable. She turned the 30-point district into an 8-point race, and has continued her activism ever since. She’s stepping up to the plate again because this district was only 2 points from flipping for Biden–and she can finish the job.
Gwenn’s day job is a public school teacher working specifically with children who are deaf and hard of hearing and their families. She is a mom of three boys: Gavin (10), Logan (20), and Garrett (26). Gwenn is also a sign language interpreter at her church on Sundays. Her kindness and spark make her enjoyable to be around, but her fight for progressive values is why she’s the best candidate for Senate District 9.
But you should come see for yourself!
