Calling all Walkers!
Judge Alice Lightle welcomes your company and needs your support to tell the people of Little Rock about her campaign for District Judge, Position 1. She has begun walking already, knocking on doors and getting a great reception from voters, but the more people we can have knocking on doors distributing literature, the more people will know why she is running for this position. They will understand her broad experience practicing law, and will be sure, after meeting her, that she's the best candidate to represent the people of Little Rock as District Judge in the Criminal Courtroom. Our city deserves to be represented by judges who are fair, reasonable and respectful to all people. Judge Lightle has proven her ability to make sound decisions and has earned the respect of those who have entered her courtroom. Therefore, we need her to stay on the bench, and we need your help to keep her there!
Can you volunteer a few hours of your time Saturday afternoon to walk with Judge Lightle? Here is when she will be walking:
Saturday, March 15
1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
To meet her goals of knocking on several hundred doors, we'll need at least 8 volunteers to walk with Judge Lightle.
Volunteer walkers will meet in the parking lot at Kavanaugh and Spruce (beside the building that houses Acadia Restaurant) at 1:45 p.m.
Please let me know if you are willing or able to help Judge Lightle for a few hours this weekend. If this weekend does not work for your schedule, Judge Lightle will be walking in different parts of town every weekend between now and Election Day, May 20th.
