From my email inbox comes this heartfelt appeal for funding from Joanne Staudacher, running as a Democrat for the 53rd State Assembly district.
As you may have heard, I’m running to represent the 53rd District in the Wisconsin State Assembly. I am facing a primary on August 14 and will need to get the word out to potential voters to reach them with my message if I want the chance to represent the 53rd in the November election.
To get the message out, I can purchase 5,000 door cards for around $400. Every $2 you invest in my campaign will buy 25 door cards and the voter contact that comes with them. I also need database access to help maximize my contact hours, since my current condition and the rural nature of my district means that I can’t walk as quickly as when I knocked my 3,000 doors for State Senator Jessica King last summer. When I am able to reach people, I receive excellent feedback and quite a bit of support from the people to whom I talk.
Now more than ever, we need people who are willing to work for a brighter future for Wisconsin. We need to attract jobs that pay a living wage and do not destroy our environment, as well as reexamine tax cuts for wealthy corporations that cut jobs only to increase their own profit margins. We also need to invest in education and the protection of our most vulnerable members of our communities. Above all, we must return to good, clean, open government. While we might not always agree on issues, we must learn how to sit down, talk, listen, and at least understand each other again if we want to be able to build a state community that will be able to move forward for the benefit of all. I promise to work toward that cooperative future that will be vital to our state’s future while I continue to advocate for those who most need it.
If you are able to help out in any way, no investment is too small. Bonus points if you can contribute before midnight tonight, which is my next reporting deadline. Even if you can’t donate, other kinds of support are needed, including volunteers, general moral support, and spreading the word about my campaign by sharing links to my Facebook page and/or my ActBlue account. I also need people to march with me in parades on July 4th in Oshkosh and Omro and on July 15th in Eldorado for their Hog Wrestle. If you have any questions, either about helping with my campaign or about my stance on specific issues, please let me know either here, at [email protected], or at (920) 215-0053. Thanks for your past support, and for any that you are able to offer me now. Together, we can make Wisconsin’s future brighter.
Candidate for Representative to the State Assembly, District 53
Though I’ve never met Joanne, I know she’s been a passionate activist and advocate on behalf of progressive ideals, and I’m confident she’d be a great addition to the State Assembly.
