Direct mail is still the best way to get our message to voters. Each direct mail piece costs about $1 to produce and mail. We need votes from about 41,000 people to win, and past experience says we need to reach them with our message about six times for it to stick. That’s $246,000 right there.
That sounds like a lot, but I know we can do it.
Our next campaign finance report is due January 31st, and it’s the last report before qualification happens in March.
A strong report will show the Republican incumbent, Sen. Fran Millar, that our voices should be taken seriously.
It’s been years since Fran had a truly competitive opponent, but we’re about to change that. In 2016, Hillary Clinton got 54% of the vote in our district. Sen. Millar knows his incumbency is at risk, but he continues to rave on Facebook about how great President Trump is, as if the majority of his constituents doesn’t exist.
Your donation before January 31 will help give us that strong finance report, and will help get our message out to voters so we can flip District 40 and put a fresh progressive voice in the legislature.
Any amount you can offer supports our campaign. If you are able to donate $250, that really makes a difference in reaching our goal. Or, you could consider starting a $25/month recurring donation which would add up to $250 by November! I personally see every donation that comes in. Each one, no matter the size, motivates me to run harder.
As a State Senator, I will fight for accessible and affordable healthcare; a cleaner environment; and a quality education for every child, regardless of the zip code they live in.
That’s why I’m running for the 40th State Senate District, and why I hope you’ll consider making a contribution so we can flip this district.
