Now Would Be A Good Time, If You Are Able

Urgent – Your campaign donation to Friends of Gary Hooser is especially important now.

It is crunch time.  Primary Election Day is August 13 and mail-in absentee voting has already started.  We must push as hard now and your help is again needed as funds donated prior to August 1 are especially important. 

This is the time when we must maximize our advertising and voter outreach and this is the time when your contributions are most needed.

2014’s results (winning by 92 votes) was far too close for comfort.  The same/similar dynamics are in play this year and we can expect the same forces to be pushing hard against my reelection again in the coming weeks.

Many during the past few months have already stepped up with generous contributions to the campaign and I hesitate to ask again but must.

I am very pleased to report that our base of grassroots donors contributing $100 or less is larger than any council candidate in the race.  The average contribution so far this year is $92.12  We have had 480 total individual contributors with only 28 being from out of state.  83.88% of our campaign contributions qualified for matching public funds!

Please help us push extra hard these next few weeks and if you are able to make a contribution no matter how small by August 1, it would be greatly appreciated.
