Last week we - you and I - passed the 800 mark in nomination signatures. That's about 200 more than the maximum needed. So, come August I'll be on the Primary ballot, and if things go as planned there, on the November ballot in the General Election. Thank you for all of your help in getting this far so quickly.
Please join us on February 9th over at Exo Roasters for our casual campaign kick off. We'll be there from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. Exo is located right around the corner from Tap & Bottle - 403 N. 6th Ave. It's a great local business, our support of which exemplifies the values I'm offering in this application for re-appointment.
As many of you know, I'm doing this campaign without asking for funds. If you would have otherwise given to help my re-election, I'd suggest offering whatever amount that would have been to a local non-profit. There are plenty who can use the help. I'll be using both Facebook and Instagram to keep you up to speed on how things are going, and where we'll be having the house parties that will be our major outreach. That outreach will be directly into people's living rooms, without a financial ask. Take the money out of politics, and you get to know the person. We'll talk together about the issues and opportunities we face as a community.
And of course my firstname.lastname@example.org account is another way I'll be staying in contact throughout the campaign. Off and running now that the petition signature piece is a done deal.
