It's time for our campaign to make some tough decisions. Vote by mail ballots go out in a little more than two weeks, and we need to choose how to spend our limited resources in order to have the most impact. Do we send another mailer? Do we pay for online ads? Do we hire more staff?

We can't make these decisions until we know how much we have to spend...

Will you make a contribution of $50, $75, or $100 before the next reporting deadline this Saturday at midnight?

Got plans for Thursday night?

If you've been waiting for the right opportunity to make a contribution to our campaign for creative leadership, we've got an event for you THIS Thursday night. Join San José community leaders for an evening of great food and drink, good company, and a little karaoke — right in the heart of District 6!

WHAT: Una Noche de Apoyo (An Evening of Support)
WHEN: Thursday, April 21, 2016, 5:30-7:30pm
WHERE: México Lindo Restaurant, 11 Race Street at The Alameda

With the next fundraising deadline fast approaching at midnight on Saturday, I need your help to compete in a crowded field.

Please visit our website to RSVP for this fun event (which includes a chance to suggest a song for me to karaoke) and click here to make a donation in advance.

We're excited to announce a special Youth (Joven) rate of $50, available to young professionals — and the young at heart! FYI: Donation levels are suggestions only. ALL are welcome, and no one will be turned away due to inability to pay.

I look forward to seeing you this Thursday night.

No better time

We started on this journey because we believe in the power of people working together to accomplish amazing things. Four months, 5,000 door knocks, and more than 400 donations later, we have our goal clearly in sight. But we need your help to reach it...

On Saturday, April 23rd, we're facing a deadline to raise the funds we need to win on the ground, on the phones, and in the mailboxes.

Will you help us meet our goal by making a contribution of $50, $75, or $100 before April 23rd?
