I’ve been a candidate for State Senate for about a month now. I’ve learned a few things.
- Do not assume that people who wish you luck really wish you luck.
- Without a circle of rich friends, it is hard to raise a quick $3,000 in $50 increments to qualify for the state campaign subsidy.
- There are a lot of lesser known issues that come up when I talk to people. That’s great, because I need your advice on all the issues important to you to help me become the best candidate.
I am working, listening and learning from people and having a good time.
I’ve been working with Sigrid Iversen, the House candidate in 36B. She is a great person, witty and enthusiastic. Pat Garofalo should be worried. I’ve also been talking to Colin Lee, the House candidate in 36A. He also has some great ideas. He’s having a “Had Enough Bull” Buffalo Roast on June 29. I hope you will attend.
As for my campaign, I just got some letterhead and envelopes and will be sending out a letter soon asking for support.
This Sunday, I will be at the DFL State Central Committee meeting. Say “hi” if you are there.
I hope you will take a minute to contribute to my campaign. I’m looking for that “golden” $50 donations, but I will be just as grateful to you for a $5 or $10 contribution.
