East Bay "Democracy for America" Meetup Message Board › URGENT: Jerry McNerney needs your VOTE ***again***
Hi DFA Meetuppers -
A few days ago, Jerry McNerney -- running for Congress against Richard Pombo -- sent out the following message to his supporters. I hope that you can take a few minutes to read it. It contains an URGENT and IMPORTANT request.
DON'T HAVE TIME TO READ THIS BUT WANT TO HELP?
VOTE FOR JERRY HERE (DEMOCRACY FOR AMERICA):
AND HERE (MAPCHANGERS):
Less than 30 hours remain until the polls close at DFA (2 p.m. PST on Friday) for the final round of this important competition!
NOTE: You can vote AGAIN in the DFA competition (this is a DIFFERENT round).
Be the Change,
Oakland DFA Meetup
McNerney for Congress
p.s. for more info on Jerry, please go to http://www.jerrymcner...
I may be leading Richard Pombo in the polls (46 to 42 percent, according to Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research) but I’ll need money – and lots of it – to send Pombo and his Big Oil buddies packing.
Democracy for America's “Grassroots All-Star” competition and Forward Together’s “MapChangers” competition are both tremendous opportunities to raise the profile of our campaign nationally – and raise the funds necessary to win in November.
These competitions are VERY IMPORTANT to our campaign. I am competing with several excellent candidates but I know we can win if you take just one minute right now to cast your online votes.
Please vote right now and then tell your friends that it only takes two clicks to take back Congress!
The final round of DFA’s competition started Monday and -- to win -- I need you to vote AGAIN before Friday at 2 p.m.:
NOTE: Even if you voted in a previous round, you can still vote AGAIN!
IF WE WIN: DFA will send a national fundraising e-mail to over 500,000 people that could raise tens of thousands of dollars before the all-important quarterly FEC deadline on June 30.
DEADLINE: This FRIDAY, June 23, at 2 p.m. PST (5 p.m. EST)
Gov. Mark Warner’s Forward Together is also conducting a national vote to determine its next “MapChanger”. After you vote in the DFA competition, please vote at:
IF WE WIN: Forward Together will cut a $5,000 check to our campaign and advance us to the final round. Grand prize: A major fundraiser hosted by Gov. Mark Warner.
DEADLINE: Thursday, June 29
Burning up shoe leather and phone lines, you demonstrated to the pundits and power-brokers on Election Day that grassroots, on-the-ground, people-to-people politics works.
Now it’s time to open your address books to bring even more people into our movement. Remember to tell your friends that we all live in Richard Pombo’s district -- especially given Pombo’s impact on our environment.
Please vote right now and then forward this message to your friends, family and neighbors!
Thank you for all that you are doing to help me defeat Richard Pombo.
p.s. once you have voted in BOTH competitions, please tell all of your friends that it only takes two clicks to take back Congress!
