This running for a political office stuff is definitely not cheap. Not by a very long shot. That’s why it seems that every candidate (including me) keeps asking for financial support. Frankly, we all abhor, hate, despise, and loathe having to do it. It is a necessity, though, because otherwise, those people who are NOT on Facebook, on Twitter, on Instagram, reading a newspaper or whatever, will not have a snowflake’s chance on a hot griddle of knowing who I am. Who knows? I might really be the better choice. It happens from time to time.
So let’s do a little basic math. I know. EW, ick, numbers. Do we have to?
Just to print that many postcards would be $10,370.
Postage would be roughly $2440.
Just that would be $12, 810. Which doesn’t include the cost of addressing, sorting, labeling, and getting them mailed out.
My campaign funds right now do not make it to the comma. We have just over one hundred days to the election. I need your help to stay competitive in this race.
You do not have to live in this district to donate. You do not have to donate in large amounts. What matters is that you support my campaign. If every person on my FB list donated $100, I would be well on my way to getting this done. I know some people can do more. Some cannot do that much. That’s fine. I can’t respond to every request either. Just do what you can.
In the meantime, I will be looking at ways to get this done as economically as possible. Thank you, my friends, from the bottom of my heart.
