The Barack Obama Campaign announced Monday that an 8-member leadership committee has been appointed in Buena Vista County to help guide the local effort to reach voters.
Members include Bruce Kurtz, JoAnn Westphal, Tony Cueto, Mike Moretz, Jon Terronez, Maurita Gholston, Grant Turner and Jaren Greene.
"Barack Obama has the unique ability to bring people together to solve the tough challenges we face," said Moretz.
The members of the committee will be hosting a "Countdown to Change" event for Obama supporters and local undecided voters on October 9th at the Boathouse in Storm Lake, 7 p.m.
"I'm honored to have the support of these leaders in Buena Vista County," Senator Obama said. "I know from first hand experience as a community organizer that real change happens from the bottom up, not the top down."
