This week marks the launch of the city council campaign season and we’ve been busy attending events like the Denia Neighborhood Forum and Kevin Roden’s Campaign Launch party. If you haven’t been paying attention, it’s time to hit up VoteDenton.Org and check out the candidates and find out district you're in (if you don't already know). Your single vote (out of roughly 1,200 in a district seat race), is the most powerful vote you’ll cast in comparison to state or national elections. At any rate, get involved and get active in the future of your city. This election is another important one. As usual, we’ve picked out ten events we think you should attend this week. Get out there, snap some grams and hashtag #WDDI to get featured in our Monday’s, What We Did post.
