It’s been a busy September! I want to extend a big thank you to everyone who attended my kick-off fundraiser, signed my petition, donated to the Elsbree for Kane campaign or knocked on doors. I am so appreciative of the support.
Here’s a quick update on what’s been happening with my campaign. Petition signing started Sept. 3 and we’ve been busy knocking on doors, attending meetings and talking with friends and neighbors about my candidacy. I’ve continued to receive donations from individual donors and my Labor Brothers and Sisters.
Here’s how you can help:
Collect petition signatures. I need volunteers to both sign my petition so I can be on the ballot and to gather signatures from their family, friends and neighbors. It’s easy - to take a petition (or two) and ask registered voters who live in Kane County for their signature, printed name and address. Reach out to us through our website and we'll get you petitions.
Donate to Elsbree for Kane. I’ve been blessed with donations early on, but it’s a long campaign. Any amount helps spread my message on how I will bring honesty, integrity and transparency to Kane County government.
Elsbree for Kane supporters had a wonderful time during Aurora's Sept. 15 Fiestas Patrias Parade. We were able to share in community spirit, learn about the rich Hispanic cultural heritage and spread the word about our campaign.
Supporting Kayla's Hope
I was honored to participate in the Sept. 7 Fox Mill 5K & 1-Mile Color Run/Walk supporting Kayla's Hope. It was a beautiful morning for a race and to support a worthy cause. Thank you Kayla's Hope Foundation for spreading the message it's OK to talk about mental illness and that mental illnesses should not have a stigma. September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness month. Let's be kind to one another and make it OK to talk about mental health challenges. There is no stigma in asking for help. If you are having suicidal thoughts reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline or call them at 1-800-273-TALK.
Come run with me. With a passion for giving back and running, I combine both by running races that support various causes. As an avid runner, I enjoy participating in 5K races. Join me at the following race. Both runners and walkers are welcome!
I need your support in spreading the word about my campaign. Please share this newsletter with your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers so they can sign up and receive emails. More info is coming on ways to support my candidacy.
