Volunteerism reaps success!

About 125 people showed up to support PEG’s Voter Guide initiative and hear Congresswoman Debbie Dingell; Paul Brown, candidate for U-M Board of Regents; Rena Basch, State Outreach Chair for VNP; Kary Moss, the former head of Michigan ACLU and a driving force behind Proposition 3 (Promote the Vote); Margot Schlanger, representing her husband Sam Bagenstos, candidate for Michigan Supreme Court; and Fran Brenner, campaign manager for Megan Cavanaugh, candidate for Michigan Supreme Court Justice. 
Barbara McQuade, the law professor at the U-M and legal analyst on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, was the special guest speaker. Quoting President Barack Obama, she said, “Elections have consequences!” over and over again to emphasize the importance of getting out the vote.
    Attendees at the PEG fundraiser left with a renewed commitment to participate in the election.
