It’s clear from the Republican-controlled State Senate budget proposals they expected my grassroots supporters, like you, to just stop working as soon as the campaign was over.
But together, we proved they were wrong — by standing up, speaking out, and holding the line when they tried to drag our state backward.
Now we’re facing another challenge. July 31 at midnight is our first fundraising deadline since the legislative session ended. We need to reach our $10,000 July fundraising goal to make sure we can keep fighting to close unnecessary tax loopholes, create jobs, and fully fund public education.
Our opponents are watching to see if you and I have what it takes to keep standing up and fighting on the critical issues facing our state.
And make no mistake about it: We have work to do.
This year, Senate Republicans failed to close unnecessary tax loopholes and create a long-term funding solution for our public schools. They stopped efforts to bring forth bipartisan legislation like the Dream Act and the Reproductive Parity Act.
And they failed to bring to a vote and pass a transportation package to keep people and goods flowing across our state.
That just means we have to keep fighting — harder than ever — to deliver on the promise I made to wake up every morning laser-focused on creating jobs and strengthening the economy.
Together we can keep up the fight, and together we can win it, but I need you to stand with me now.
Thank you so much for your continued support. Together we can do hard things.
Very truly yours,
