We hope you are having a wonderful June so far! This month is Pride Month, which commemorates the 1969 Stonewall Uprising that occurred in Manhattan. In addition, we recognize Juneteenth or “Freedom Day” on June 20th, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. June is also PTSD Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness about PTSD and much needed equitable treatment options.
We are getting closer to the July Primary every day! Did you mark your calendars yet? Or in this day and age, add an event to your smart phone for July 19?
As an additional reminder, June 28th is the last day to register to vote for the upcoming Primary Election.
Requests for mail-in ballots for the Primary Election must be received by July 12, 2022.
