Hi Tracey & Team, excellent work on EBB thus far. I am new to this group and this meeting. There has been so much Vaccine and Stimulus coverage on local news through National companies like Fox, ABC, etc... Especially social media. Is there a social media distribution plan for Arizona post tool kit release?
