VID Kicks-off Petitioning Season!

Mar 05, 2024

VID kicked off petitioning season with it's annual Petitioning Kick-off Breakfast on March 2nd. It was a packed house with VID & community members, elected officials and our endorsed candidates.  Bagels and schmozzing ensued. Thanks to VID Treasurer, Irene Kaufman, for hosting in her wonderful home. Thanks to all who helped and attended! 

Now, let's get to work!

Meet and have fun with neighborhood activists and help make a difference! Click HERE for a list of VID's 2024 endorsed candidates who will appear on petitions. As a reminder, Petitioning is required for every candidate running for office. VID helps by collecting the required number of signatures in the district for its endorsed candidates so they can qualify for the ballot.
