Robert's Update

Since early February, we have been hard at work. There have been one-on-one meetings, home events and fundraisers. We are also building the necessary campaign infrastructure to be successful as we head toward November. My days and nights are long, but it has been invigorating to say the least as I meet new people who care about the future direction of their city.

Currently, we’re working on the official campaign kickoff, to be held in two weeks. This will be an opportunity to let the community know we are off and running as we take over Generations Plaza for the evening. I invite you to come out and join us for what I know will be a great time in our downtown.

I selected downtown for the kickoff because it truly is the heart of the community. People are excited about what has been occurring and what is on the horizon. Downtown needs to continue to be a primary focus, and that is why I am pleased that the kickoff is being sponsored by businesses and individuals who are champions of our downtown. They are vested in its success as they own businesses, property or understand its importance in our future.

Once we have this public launch of the campaign, we will be ramping up our activity out in the community, on social media, and beyond. To stay more informed about the campaign, please follow my campaign Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (personal/campaign) accounts.

Thanks for your continued interest and support, and I look forward to seeing you in two weeks!

Campaign Kickoff

Robert’s official campaign kickoff will be held Wednesday, May 29th in Generations Plaza! From 5:30-7:30 pm, there will be live music, root beer floats (one of Robert’s favorites!), food from Deja Brew, and Heritage Hop Haus will be serving no-host beverages for a special campaign kickoff price. Calendar the Kickoff today, and plan on joining us there at 112 E Idaho Ave (Main & Idaho), Meridian!

Women For Simison

On May 1st, Treasure Valley women (and a few guys) met at Mayor Tammy’s home for a “Women for Simison” open house. Amidst the snacks and refreshments, Robert summarized the many issues affecting Meridian residents and how together, we can ensure a vibrant and connected community for years to come. As one co-host said, “I’ve met with Robert Simison and believe he’ll continue to guide the fastest growing city in the nation in the right direction.”

We are grateful for Mayor Tammy opening up her home and backyard, as well as the many event organizers and over 70 co-hosts, who made this event a tremendous success. Stay tuned for news on more open houses to be held in the future!
