This campaign went as long as we could before crowd sourcing donations, and now I humbly ask for your contribution. I will continue my commitment in putting my heart, soul, and wallet into campaigning for the people, but my wallet is running dry. Family and friends around the world, if you believe in me and can spare a small donation, I would be so grateful for your generosity. This is my first election bout, and it's to the future or bust. I need you, I want to win, and I'm eager to serve. I will not let you down.
I am grateful for the opportunity to prove why I am a qualified candidate to represent the citizens of Marquette. This beautiful city has been my love, and home, for three decades. It is the greatest city on the planet.
From kindergarten to college, I am fortunate to have been educated here all my life. One of my greatest joys was starting a small-business downtown. I worked as an advocate of local arts, music, and entertainment.
Since then, I have successfully campaigned to get over a dozen local leaders elected, heavily active behind-the-scenes in politics. For over a decade, I helped small-business owners with marketing and promotion, and spent the latter four years digitally producing local news. Most recently, I was dedicated to non-profit public relations and fundraising. I work at Northern Michigan University's Center for Native American Studies and have become an outspoken advocate and activist for various causes.
I am now eagerly compelled to lead.
There is a lot of work to do. Please contact me if you are interested in helping with my campaign. From volunteering, signing my nomination petition, developing a committee, or simply just sharing my intent-to-run with your friends, I would greatly appreciate your feedback.
It would be an honor to represent you. It is my belief when you’re elected to public office, you do not ascend above your constituents, but rather become an extension of them to advocate on their behalf.
I’m looking forward to a new discourse on how to put the people of the Queen City back on their pedestal. With your support, we can accomplish so much. Thank you for your consideration.
Thank you. Shukran. Miigwech. Gracias.
