Running for office is not easy work. But surely the hardest part about running for a campaign is asking for help.
There are many ways that you can help. Obviously, financial help is necessary. All contributions are appreciated, no matter how large or small.
I recognize that not everyone is able to help financially. There are other ways you can also help:
- Introduce me to your neighbors and friends. (How about a Zoom happy hour/town hall?)
- Phone bank. (There are scripts and phone numbers to make it easy!)
- Digitial door knocking. (Organize NH will help you connect your friends to my campaign)
- Hold signs at polling locations (Primary September 8, 2020; General election on November 3, 2020.)
- Participate in visibility at the Town Dump
- Put a sign in your yard
- Help put signs in other locations
- Share my social media posts
- Call my attention to social media posts that need attention
- Write a letter to the editor or make a FB post supporting my campaign. (I’d be happy to proofread!)
- Make a donation to my campaign
It distresses me to have to ask for financial help. It shouldn’t be necessary. But until we get campaign spending under control, political candidates must raise funds to ensure that all voters realize that they DO have options in the voting booth. This year, as we are being encouraged to not knock on doors, mailings will be more critical than ever.
And let’s face it: Rockingham 8 is a challenging district. It’s the size of 1/2 of a senate district, but we have 18 candidates (after weeding out a few in the primary), running for nine seats. It’s the third-largest, at-large district in the country! Every contribution helps; even small amounts add up. Your donation could help me win one of the nine State Rep seats in Salem (Rockingham 8). $10.00 allows me to send a letter to 14 people or boost a Facebook post to 290-840 people. $27 will pay for the first 75 of 500 postcards. $50 will pay for the first 500 out of 5,000 postcards.
Your donation could help me win one of those nine State Rep seats in Salem (Rockingham 8).
