Former Beaumont City Councilwoman Bobbie J. Patterson is now spearheading a drive she calls “Operation One Vote,” which is an outreach mission encouraging citizens to register to vote and to actually go to the polls and cast a ballot in coming elections.
In conjunction with a host of other entities, the group is sponsoring a “Meet-the-Candidates Forum & Voter Registration Drive,” which is scheduled for Thursday, April 7, at 7 p.m. at Our Mother of Mercy Catholic Hall located at 3390 Sarah Street in Beaumont.
The public is invited to attend the open meeting, and guests should expect to hear from candidates for Beaumont City Council and Beaumont ISD Board of Trustees platforms. Also, a representative of the Jefferson County Voter Registration Department will be there to register voters, Patterson stated. For more information, contact Patterson’s group at (409) 842-9632.
