Core to our mission at the American Veterans Honor Fund is rallying support around our Veterans and raising awareness on Veterans’ Issues. Central to these objectives is getting Veterans elected to public office. And we have launched successful “Get Out the Vote” campaigns to do just that. Back in October, American Veterans Honor Fund ran a highly effective campaign in the state of North Carolina, where we reached upwards of 30,000 voters in the final stretches of the 2020 campaign. Now, we are back on the trail, this time in Plano, Texas.
Just like in the North Carolina campaign, we were able to successfully reach thousands of potential voters through multi-platform contacts, including Facebook, email marketing, text messaging, and phone calls. This campaign was dedicated to rallying the vote in local Plano elections that were held on May 1st to elect a new mayor and vote on various local ballot measures. We are pleased with the results.
In total, 34,915 citizens voted in the local Plano elections on May 1st, resulting in a new mayor for the city, Republican John Muns. For us, this was another opportunity to make an impact at the local level and we look forward to the opportunity to make a difference in future elections to come.

One of the most sought-after votes from any demographic of American society has always been our military veterans. Many promises are made to honor them, fight for them, and take care of them the way they deserve after putting their life and limb on the line for our country and our Constitution. But now, the season of campaign promises and pledges has come and gone. That is why now, more than ever, it is imperative not to lose sight of those who need our support; our nation’s veterans.
