Tom Poetter is a friend, an educator, and a man who takes truth to action. I will be supporting this campaign and I hope that you will share this post, contribute to his campaign, and recognize that while all of us may not live in Ohio, we must begin to support candidates nationwide who can help us reclaim our democracy. Tom will.
I just received the following update from Tom:
Please Support Our Campaign to Defeat John Boehner in 2014, US HOUSE RACE -- OHIO'S DISTRICT 8
We are ready to launch our year long campaign to unseat Speaker Boehner in 2014. Over the past several days, we have received some major media attention regarding the campaign. You can read Monday's Newsweek article here and The Cincinnati Enquirer article from last Friday here.
We know that running will take a national fundraising effort in order to compete with Speaker Boehner's campaign war chest. However, the campaign begins at home with family, friends, professional colleagues, and acquaintances. But no matter where you live, please join us in bringing representation back to the people of District 8, bringing true leadership back to Ohio, and bringing integrity back to Congress. By the way, I sent this to you because I know you and hope you'll join our campaign, not because I necessarily know your political orientation. Take the step of putting a strong citizen who will represent you and all Americans back in this seat.
You can easily donate to our campaign here. You can also donate to the campaign by writing a check made out to "Poetter for Congress" and by mailing it to Poetter for Congress, C/O Glenn Rymer, Treasurer, 6440 Fairfield Road, Oxford, Ohio 45056. Please consider making a donation of $25, $50, $100, or even $250 to help us launch this effort.
Please also join us on Twitter @poetter4house and Facebook at "Tom Poetter 4 Congress District 8 Ohio." Let your friends and family know that we are running, and that we need their votes, communication with other supporters, and financial support going forward. Please forward this email to friends and relatives and encourage them to join us.
I am personally invested in this campaign. I'm willing to give time and money and heart to the work ahead. Please consider donating and volunteering, on the ground and through social media.
Many Best Regards,
