Will You Be My Rich Uncle Charlie?

The election is exactly 6 weeks away today, so its time to start thinking about the school board again.   Let me be up front: I’m asking for a donation to help support my school board campaign.

In the primary election this past spring, my opponents Gharrett Rhoads and his running mate Chris Donatelli spent more than $7,500 on the election.  That is almost 800% more than I spent, and over $3.60 per vote Mr. Rhoads received in the primary!  And the vast majority of this money– $6,000– came from one individual, Mr. Charles Rhoads, according to campaign finance reports.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a rich Uncle Charlie to underwrite my school board campaign.  I have paid for almost everything myself up until this point.  But now I’m asking for your help.  Already I have more requests for yard signs than I can meet.  And I need to print updated campaign materials to give to people as I go door to door in the coming weeks.  If you live in the East Penn School District, please consider a small donation to help with these costs, whether its $10, $25, or $50– every little bit helps.  You can contribute right now with a major credit card by clicking the “Donate” button below.  Or if you prefer, you can mail a check to Citizens to Elect Munson, 305 N. 2nd St., Emmaus PA 18049.

And if you know anyone else who might be willing to make a small contribution, please send them to http://www.munson4eastpenn.org/get-involved.html

Thank you!
