Leslie Lester Osborne, Democrat for 5th Court of Appeals, Place 13
Fundraiser Meet and Greet
Wednesday, August 22 at 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM
108 N Travis St, Sherman
Please join us at Gary D. Corley’s office on 8/22/18 to have a beer or two, and help celebrate Leslie’s run for the 5th District Court of Appeals, Pl. 13. Several of Leslie’s 5th District Court of Appeals ‘slate mates’ will also be in attendance, and we hope you’ll come out to meet them, too. You don’t have to be a ‘politico’ to attend — the more the merrier. And neither do you have to make a campaign donation to attend. But if you you want to make one, here is a link: https://plasso.com/s/K55oA2MvTq
