Euer said “I am encouraged and humbled by the support the community has shown me with their willingness to volunteer and to contribute to our grassroots campaign. Our team of friends, family, and supporters are committed to supporting our small businesses, improving government accountability and transparency, as well as the protection of our critical environmental resources.  


Euer announced her candidacy just 33 days ago and has seen an incredible outpouring of support of her campaign. “We’re just getting started and will be officially launching our campaign on Tuesday.“ Euer’s campaign launch is scheduled for Tuesday, May 2 at 5:30PM at The Fifth Element in Newport.
