Notes & Noticias: My $5,000 Match For Wendy


Dear Friends,

It seems like election season has already reached a fever pitch.

Early voting for the November 2013 elections started Monday. I urge you to vote for the City of Austin bonds on the ballot, which will provide much-needed funds for affordable housing.

I’m also looking ahead to next November. That’s why today I’m launching my $5,000 match to Wendy Davis’s campaign for Governor. I’ll match every donation received through this link up to $5,000 to help her campaign have the funds to run all the way through next November.

Read on for more.

Run With Wendy: My $5,000 Match

For months, Texas Democrats urged Wendy Davis to run for Governor in 2014. Now that she’s in the race, we have to do all we can to make sure she can run a strong, winning campaign.

That’s why I’m matching up to $5,000 in donations to Wendy Davis through my website.

Starting today, I will match every dollar you donate to Wendy Davis through this link, up to $5,000.

Wendy can’t do it alone. She needs all of us to stand with her as she campaigns to provide new leadership for Texas. Our state can do better. We need Wendy in the Governor’s mansion so that our shared priorities of strong public schools, access to quality health care, and equal opportunities for all Texans can be realized.

Please join me in supporting her campaign. Donate through this link, and I will match up to $5,000 in donations to Wendy Davis.

Let’s make a better Texas, together!

Spotlight On: Keep Austin Affordable

Early voting started Monday for the November 2013 elections. If you haven’t voted yet, please go to the polls and support the City of Austin affordable housing bonds on your ballot.

These bonds are a crucial investment in protecting affordability for low- and middle-income Austinites. These much-needed funds will make sure that successful non-profit organizations can continue providing housing for members of our community in need.

To show my support, I made a video about the importance of this bond election. Click the image above to watch it, and then please share the video on Facebook and Twitter to help spread the word.

Working Hard, and Working Together

We all have to keep working hard and working together to make our community and state the best we possibly can. We need new leadership to refocus our legislature on our shared priorities: education, health care, and economic opportunity for all.

That’s why I’m asking each of you to donate to Wendy Davis, and double your money through my $5,000 match.

We also need to keep supporting existing organizations that are achieving tremendous results in our community, addressing issues of affordability.

Please vote early before the next edition of Notes and Noticias, and when you do, vote FOR the City of Austin affordable housing bonds.

Thanks for all you’re doing to help build a better Texas, and thanks for supporting other efforts to do likewise. I look forward to seeing you in the community.

Sincerely,
Eddie
