“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of determination.” —Vince Lombardi
In 2012, we built a grassroots campaign that I am proud of. We highlighted the crucial issues our neighborhoods and communities face every day. We sparked a discussion that carried across the district, and many people took notice. I am determined to continue what we have started, and will continue to work to ensure that our voice is heard.
My life has been defined by determination and working hard—establishing a small business, the Wilde Roast Café, while at the same time prioritizing the education of our youth, who we will soon entrust with the care of our neighborhoods and communities. Now, I am convinced the experience and insight I’ve gained as an educator and small business owner are leading me to serve the interests of people in my district, and throughout the state.
I have been blessed to meet many exceptional people in my life, personally and professionally. You are certainly one of them. That’s why I am asking for your help.
First, I am asking for your financial support. It will take about $60,000 to run a successful campaign that fully engages the people in my district. The donation limit for 2013-2014 is $500 per person, and I am grateful for any help you can provide.
Second, we need you to volunteer for Team DeGree! Give me a call to lend your time and talents to the campaign, we will be calling and knocking this summer.
Thank you for your friendship and support. Let’s continue working together to keep Moving Minnesota Forward.
