TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) The family of Michael Dean held a special community event to spread awareness on the importance of voting in the upcoming elections and to remember their brother.
The event, held at Miller Park in Temple on Saturday afternoon, gave citizens the opportunity to register to vote.
Dean's sisters, DeShaundra and Tosheena, organized the event.
"A lot of the elected officials that are involved in our brother's case are up for election this year," DeShaundra said.
"A lot of people say they don't agree with some of the things that're going on. We just want to get the information about the candidates out."
The sisters say they don't endorse one particular candidate, but do believe that city officials could do more to help in Dean's case and other pressing issues in the community.
