I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and you were able to enjoy the company of loved ones. I certainly have plenty to be thankful for this year. It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a year since I announced my candidacy, and I’ve been honored by the outpouring of support I’ve received.
While I have had many things to be thankful for in the last year, the best part of my campaign so far has been going door to door and talking with voters about what is important to them.I, along with my hardworking group of volunteers have knocked over 1,700 doors this year. I’ve had the opportunity to stand on the porches of constituents and talk with them about what is important to them in their community. It’s grassroots organizing at it’s finest.
If I could knock every constituents door in the district, I would, because this is the best way to get a pulse on who these people are and what they care about, and to communicate to them our campaign's message. However, this is not always possible - some residents live in large, inaccessible buildings, and those whose doors we do knock aren't always home when we want to talk to them. Fortunately, we have other methods of getting in touch with them, like trying to catch their eyeballs on Facebook, or mailing my smiling face and entreaty for votes to their doors. But as you might imagine, these efforts take money. This is where I need your help. Any contribution, no matter how big or small will help me get my message to those voters, and take their voices with me to fight for making Colorado a place we will continue to be proud to call home.
I promise you this: No less than 80% of your contribution will go directly to voter outreach. We run a lean campaign and are fortunate to have a team of volunteers willing to put in the time and effort because they believe in the campaign, which means that we operate efficiently and take pride in using your donations directly to get our message out to voters.
If you are unable to donate, we need for boots on the ground to help propel the campaign into the New Year. Please consider volunteering by clicking here.
I wish you and yours a Happy Holiday, and a Happy New Year. As always, thank you for your support.
