It's been a little more than a month since I first filed to be the next Seminole County School Board member for District 4. As a first time candidate for office, I wondered how my friends and family would react, much less voters who have never met me or heard my name before this campaign.
I can not be happier and thankful for your support.
Our first month, we had more than 40 individual contributors to the campaign. The average contribution was less than $100 per person.
This is important as I'm working hard to build a grass-roots organization, one that brings the community together for our children.
Of course, I need your help. If you haven't contributed yet, please make sure to do so soon. Remember, for $25, I can place eight yard signs in yards. For $50, I can reach 100 more voters in the mail. For $100, I can call 1,000 voters.
If you would rather contribute your time, or both time and treasure, you can volunteer to help the campaign. Please send us your information. As we get closer, I'll need people to waive signs, knock on doors, call voters and stuff envelopes. There will be something for anyone who volunteers.
I look forward to working with you over the next several months. Together, we can be victorious.
