56 days left: New Endorsement, Straw Poll Victory, & Steve’s Birthday Bash
We only have 56 days left, and our campaign is gaining more momentum. We’ve got a new endorsement and won a key straw poll with more good news on the way. Also, my cupcake fiesta (a.k.a. Birthday Bash) is coming up on Sept. 21.
I am excited to announce that our campaign has just received the endorsement of People for the American Way Action Fund whose mission is to promote the American Way and defend it from attack, to build and nurture communities of support for our values, and to equip those communities to promote progressive policies, elect progressive candidates, and hold public officials accountable. Here are the kind words they offered: “Steve is a true progressive champion and exactly the type of leader that Sacramento needs,” said Randy Borntrager, Political Director at People For the American Way Action Fund.
This endorsement is especially meaningful today as we remember the people and families who sacrificed for our country on Sept. 11, 2001 and in its aftermath.
Straw Poll Victory.
We got twice as many votes as our competitor in last weekend’s straw poll at the “2012 Black Political Convention” organized by the Sacramento Congress of African Peoples where I spoke, along with candidates from many other electoral races, to more than 130 African-American leaders. With a diverse district, this vote of confidence from a key community was another affirmation that our campaign is on the right track to win our election in November. Thank you to the attendees for believing in our vision for a more vibrant, open, and modern city!
Next Friday, Sept 21, we’ll be having a cupcake fiesta at the wonderful Midtown home of David Sobon to celebrate another milestone…my 33rd birthday! As the critical Sept. 30 fundraising deadline approaches, we need your help to meet our fundraising goal. Please join us at the event if you’re in town, but if not please consider sending a birthday contribution to help us out. You can RSVP through Facebook or by email to email@example.com.

PS- We’ll have some more good news and another spectacular event to announce soon…stay tuned!
