Instead of establishing a traditional campaign headquarters, Dahlkemper plans to move throughout Erie County, spending time each week at different locations to meet with citizens and answer questions. Her first stop will be Saturday at Lavery Brewing Co., 128 W. 12th St., starting at 9 a.m., according to a news release from Dahlkemper’s campaign.
Dahlkemper will then head into nearby neighborhoods to meet door-to-door with voters. Dahlkemper, a former congresswoman, is challenging incumbent Democrat Barry Grossman in the May 21 municipal primary.
“We are bringing our message to the voters, to their communities and to their neighborhoods,” Dahlkemper said. “We are taking our campaign message to them, rather than expecting them to come to us.”
Lavery Brewing is an Erie-based craft brewery founded in 2009. The company has more than doubled its beer production and began shipping its beers to New Jersey and Delaware in 2012, according to Dahlkemper’s news release.
