NEENAH, Wis.(May 15, 2020) – Lauri Asbury, the pro-small business candidate for Wisconsin State Assembly’s 55th District, is inviting those who live in the district to sign her nomination papers this Sunday, May 17 from 1-3 p.m. in the old Shopko parking lot near Festival Foods, on the corner of Green Bay Road and Winneconne Avenue in Neenah.
Due to current CDC health recommendations, traditional methods of gathering signatures such as knocking on doors and circulating papers at events, are not a good option at this time. Instead, the safe sign and drive event will allow people to sign nomination papers while remaining inside their vehicles. Asbury and volunteers will be wearing masks and gloves and will provide new pens for each signature or guests are welcome to bring their own pens. Yard signs will also be available for pick-up at the sign and drive event.
