An Election Year Like No Other

BY: DAVID G. GREINEDER, IOM, ABC KEYSTONE DIRECTOR OF GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS

In election years, we often hear the phrase, “this is the most important election in our lifetime.” I am sure you will hear the phrase many times, and in many ways, the cliché is more “real” given national and global events.

In previous issues of the Merit Shop Spokesman, you read about important ways to engage in the political process. The time is now! In August, we are pleased to continue our series of virtual legislator Meet & Greets. This is an opportunity for you to contribute to ABC Keystone’s political funds and directly interact with lawmakers who support our issues and serve on key committees. Please consider joining one – or all – of the upcoming events. Of course, there are sponsorship opportunities as well!
