Hope X. We'd like to hold a meet and greet. Planning: https://piratenpad.de/p/hope-xxxxxxxxxx. Lucia and Jason have volunteered their hotel room as a location. We'll need to develop a flyer. May want to participate in Noisy Square activities. Steve to find out more.
Campaign updates. Noe's website being worked on; bank account established. Nothing to report from Joe's campaign. We should start thinking about ways to get Noe and Joe's name out there. Might be an opportunity for candidates to be interviewed on Activiate Radio.
SCAT TV Panel Discussion. https://www.facebook.com/events/662890290456898/. Noe will be moderator.
Artbeat. Happening at the same time as Hope X. Need volunteers to help Noe canvass at Artbeat.
