On Valentine’s Day, I went to Sacramento City Hall to pull my nomination papers, which is the first step to getting on the ballot. We have been collecting the signatures of voters in the district and sharing our vision of a brighter future for Sacramento. We have spent time at neighborhood meetings, the Sunday Farmers Market, and canvassing the doors of thousands of voters over the last few months.

When we began this race in October, we knew that making change in Sacramento and fighting for a better city wasn’t going to be easy. Our competitors have also geared up to fight, including one who loaned her campaign $50,000. As a people powered campaign, we need your help to win a brighter future for Sacramento. Below are three things you can do to help us carry our message to victory. We only have 15 weeks until the election.
1) Contribute to the campaign on-line or at an upcoming event: Your donation of $10, $25, or $50 really does make a big difference. Give it online or give at our exciting March 7 event at Bows & Arrows in Midtown featuring the food of Fat Face, local brew Ruhstaller, and some talented Sacramento musicians. RSVP on the Facebook event or click the picture below. Whatever you can do to help will be appreciated.
2) Attend a voter forum or host a neighborhood meeting:
There are two upcoming voter forums in March: 1) Sacramento Old City Association Forum on Saturday, March 10 at 9am, & 2) Land Park Community Association Forum on Wednesday, March 21 at 7pm. You can also find these events and more on our events calendar at: www.steve4sacramento.com/events/. To host a neighborhood meeting for me, please email our campaign coordinator Jameson Parker (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get it scheduled.
3) Volunteer on the campaign to spread the word to your friends and neighbors: Sign up for a Saturday or Sunday to walk precincts with us. Email Jameson@Steve4Sacramento.com to help. You can also help by following us on Facebook, Twitter @Steve4Sac, and forward this message to your friends.
Thank you for working with us to give Sacramento a brighter future.
