Rich Whitney Asks For Funds to Open Up Chicago Office
August 12, 2010 in General
The Rich Whitney for Illinois Governor campaign is asking supporters to make a donation so that they can open up an office on the South Side of Chicago in Bronzeville. See message below:
Full Disclosure: I am a volunteer on Rich’s campaign.
Dear friends and supporters,
Currently Rich Whitney has very little name recognition on Chicago’s South Side. The reason is fairly obvious: neither the Whitney for Governor campaign nor the young Illinois Green Party has had much of a presence on the South Side.
The Whitney for Governor Campaign wants to change this reality by OPENING A SOUTH SIDE CAMPAIGN OFFICE IN CHICAGO’S HISTORIC BRONZEVILLE NEIGHBORHOOD, out of which the campaign can base its South Side organizing efforts.
To pay for this office, a South Side organizer’s stipend, and for miscellaneous office expenses, the campaign needs a total of $4,500.00. Right now the campaign has $1,800.00 set aside to use for these expenses. But we still need to raise the rest of the needed funds — $2,700.00 — from our supporters.
PLEASE HELP US MEET OUR GOAL OF RAISING $2,700, BY MAKING A DONATION TODAY, AT: http://www.facebook.com/l/593cfTVrBiclxtbo7zD3CyBMXqg;tinyurl.com/27waurs
With great appreciation,
The Whitney for Governor Team
