Dear Friends and Supporters,


Thank you all so much for responding to Maura's message.  We are gaining momentum and and want to finish strong this month with our first big milestone only 11 days away--our first FEC report of the campaign. 


With money pouring into my opponents' coffers, we urgently need to have the resources to respond.  Powerful interests are ready to pounce and shut us out if we do not have the resources by September 30.  Because I am a clean money candidate (no special interests), our challenge is even greater, and we need your help now.


I knew when I decided to run a clean money campaign, the naysayers would be out in full force, but I know that your support is stronger than their tired rhetoric.


Join me in standing up to the wealthy Washington insiders and naysayers.  Please contribute $25, $50, $100 or more today. 


I agree with Maura, this race is not about my victory, it is about your victory and victory for progress and civil rights and the power of true grassroots.  This Saturday, I will be the keynote speaker at a forum in Lawrence, "Raising Our Voices: Women Speak Out for Social Justice."  You know you can always count on me to speak out and stand up for you. 


Can I count on you to stand with me in our fight to bring a voice and a choice back to the people?   Please rush your secure contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more to us today.


As always, we are here, working hard for you.  All my best.


Thank you so much for your support!

Dear Friends!


A few weeks ago, Nancy Pelosi was here in Massachusetts raising money for Marisa's well-heeled opponent.  We may not have Nancy's machine, but what we do have is Marisa's word and Marisa's integrity and she does not break them for anybody. 


Nancy's theme of her visit was "When Women Succeed, America Succeeds."  Well, here we are: we have the first woman candidate for the 6th District in more than two decades.  Let's make history and send a woman to Congress, because it is not about Marisa's victory, it is about victory for progress, civil rights, honesty and integrity. 


Can you stand up and make history?


Marisa is not just a woman, but a woman who has an unmatched record fighting and winning for both women and men on the ground, in the courts, and against the biggest player on the block.  And when Marisa wins these fights, hardworking people, small businesses, and families across the District win. We win when Marisa wins.


Click here to contribute $25. $50, $100, $500 or more, and join Marisa in standing up and winning for hardworking people.


I am a woman who feels that we should elect the best candidate, period. But when the best candidate for the job is a woman, we win on both counts. Please join me in supporting Marisa DeFranco for Congress. We have only 18 days before the first report of this campaign, and what you give today will determine whether our grassroots voices are heard or drowned out by the tide of big money.  


Please rush us a secure contribution right now to make sure Marisa has the resources she needs to stand up...and fight...and win for you.


With your help we can send the best candidate (who happens to be a woman) to Congress.


Thank you so much for your support,

Maura Flynn
