Saturday's Kickoff was a smashing success! I can't thank all of you enough who joined us at the start of this campaign focused on building community. 

If you missed it, be sure to watch the speeches (you can find mine at the 30-minute mark or the written speech here).

Kickoff by the numbers:

  • Over 120 attendees 
  • 16 skilled volunteers helped put on the event, plus 30 more volunteers signed up to work on the campaign
  • 7 dynamic, insightful speakers supporting the campaign, including special guest Ken Yeager! 
  • Nearly 30 co-hosts deeply connected to the community
  • $19,218 raised since launching 6 days ago
  • Tons of support by attendees for the vendors of the farmers market
  • A truckload of momentum! 

While we've reached another early milestone in this campaign, as one of my best friends Alex Daniels told me last week, "This is just the beginning."

So now that we had the inspiring moment coming together at base camp, it's time to start the real work of climbing the mountain: talking to District 6 voters and raising the funds necessary to reach as many of them as possible.

That starts with me yet this campaign only reaches the summit because of you! 

Here are 2 things I'm asking you: 

  1. Now's your last chance to become a #WeekOneDonor of the campaign.
  2. You can sign up to volunteer, as the campaign will begin knocking on doors this month! 

I'm deeply moved by the out-of-the-gate outpouring of support this week; what an incredibly generous, diverse group of supporters we're already assembling!
