|Thanks to Fred Kraybill for this one.|
In 2010 I made phone calls, and canvassed for Joe on doorsteps in parts of Pittsburgh I didn't know existed. In the end, he narrowly lost to Republican Pat Toomey, and we've all seen where that has led us (see below for informative links). This time, we're upping our game: in order to give more local folks a chance to meet and talk with Joe, and to help line his coffers for the long road still ahead, Neil and I are hosting a fundraiser!
Please join us to meet and support Joe Sestak in his campaign to be the next U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania. A former Navy Admiral and U.S. Congressman, Joe kicked off his Senate campaign by walking 422 miles across the Commonwealth, from Philadelphia to the Ohio border. At each stop, he spoke at length with local residents about issues affecting Pennsylvanians, and heard their concerns. Come and sit with us to hear what Joe has learned, not just from the walk, but also from his vast experience as he lays out what he will stand for in the U.S. Senate so that we may hold him accountable -- as put forward in his book, Walking in Your Shoes to Restore the American Dream.
4:30 at Neil & Maren's house in Frick Park. All the details and online RSVP are on the official invitation. Minimum donation is $100; attendees can either contribute online or bring a check to the event. After you RSVP, you'll receive an email with directions and other information.
If you need any further convincing about Joe's merits, here are a bio, a comparison of Sestak's and Toomey's careers, a quick comparison of their records on a few key issues, and more detailed contrast sheets on a whole host of topics.
