National Voter Registration Day
Dear Employees of the McCormack Baron Companies –
Today, Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020, is National Voter Registration Day.
Please join us and our communities as we celebrate our democracy and encourage our friends, families and colleagues to make sure they are registered to vote.

And now a story about one of our own: the properties of McCormack Baron Companies are collectively and individually participating in a national coalition, Our Homes Our Votes 2020, sponsored by the National Low Income Housing Corporation (NLIHC). Last week, the NLIHC held a press conference to talk about this nation-wide effort. They invited MBS to include a resident in the press conference and D’Andrea Jones, a resident of Renaissance Place and valued MBS employee, stole the show with her eloquence about how it takes one person at a time to make a difference. I want to share with you some of the feedback received after the event:
“D’Andrea- You did such a fantastic job on this press call. You gave the voter engagement work a human face in a way that was relatable and compelling. You also made it clear that good things can happen when property managers are in partnership with residents for these efforts. So much gratitude for your time and your perspective. Great job!” -Joey Lindstrom, Director for Field Organizing, NLHIC
“Thanks to all for your partnership and leadership. D’Andrea, I appreciate your wisdom, insights and commitment – thank you for taking time to share it. You’re the embodiment of your saying ‘just being one is enough’!” - Diane Yentel, President & CEO, NLHIC
We are grateful to all of you for your hard work on behalf of our residents, our communities and our country. Thank you all, including D’Andrea, for being a critical part of our democracy.
Way to go,
