In this campaign, I've made it a priority to write to you every Friday, sharing "behind the scenes" glimpses of the campaign trail.
So often, politics feels very removed from everyday life, and it's been important for me to hold space to remind you (and myself!) that I am just a human doing my best to fight for what's important.
In that spirit of honest and transparency, here is a graphic representation of my life right now:
The election is 25 days away, and everything is happening at once. We're knocking on thousands of doors, attending 2-3 events per day, figuring out yard sign distribution, tracking the whereabouts of thousands of postcards being written by volunteers, and prioritizing and re-prioritizing task lists that never seem to get any shorter.
And of course, I'm still trying to raise the final $7,400 we need to fully fund our mail program.
It's overwhelming. And I could use your help.
Can you make an online contribution of $50, $100, $250 or $500 today?
Every donation gives me a little breathing room: to knock 10 more doors, squeeze in one more event, or perhaps even (gasp!) sit down for a meal with my family.
You, dear reader, will carry me through these last three weeks, and I am so appreciative.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU,
PS -- I've promised my kids that on November 6th, they can stay home from school and we will watch movies in our pajamas all day and eat as much popcorn as our bellies will hold. If you have recommendations for family-friendly movies that we can stream on Netflix, please let me know!
