November 30, 2019 (Alpine) -- Dr. Helen Horvath, candidate for the 50th Congressional District, will hold a candidate forum and community food drive at the Alpine Library Community Room in Alpine on Dec. 13 from 5-7 p.m.
Topics will include:
- Integrative Community Services
- Women’s healthcare
- Veterans’ initiatives
- Small business concerns and development
- Senior Care (Medicare, social security, and related topics)
- Balanced budget efforts
- Immigration and border security
- Other community topics as they are requested
Residents are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for redistribution in our community. Click this link for more information about the food drive. Food is only accepted on the day of the Town Hall Meeting. The food drive is part of a two-month “hand-up” campaign starting Dec. 1 that Horvath has launched, asking constituents to bring non-perishable foods to her community coffees and town halls.
“Within the 50th district, there are individuals who are homeless, food insecure, or marginally homeless. These community members may have just lost their jobs or are not making enough money to make ends meet. This where we, as a community, are able to provide and assist,” Horvath says. Foods will be distributed within the community where each event is held in cooperation with food pantries and churches.
Residents are encouraged to RSVP to horvathcampaign.com/events-1 to ensure sufficient seating for the community.
Horvath also encourages constituents to consider “random acts of kindness” to others. “The look of joy on a person’s face when someone does a kindness is priceless. It is time to remember our past when the actions of the community were not as polarized as we are currently,” the independent candidate not affiliated with any political party states. “Maybe by bringing momentary joy to members of our community we can begin the process of coming together again.”
