State Rep. Robin Robinson (R-Laurel) presented “Campaigning during a Pandemic” at the recent International Women’s Forum quarterly meeting.
“My mother was the first woman in our area to be elected as a justice court judge. I helped her campaign in the 1980s and 1990s, ” Robinson said. “Sam Britton, my husband, was elected Public Service Commissioner for the Southern District in 2015. He ran for statewide office in 2019. I helped him campaign. So, I know a little bit about campaigning and campaigns, but what I knew had to be adapted because of the pandemic. One thing is clear — COVID campaigning forced us to think outside the box and embrace change.”
Robinson was elected June 23 during a special election for House of Representatives in District 88. Her term will end in 2024.
“During these uncertain times, I wanted the voters to know that I care, and that I am willing to work to help make things better for all of us,” Robinson said. “I am honored to serve the people of District 88.”
