Debra Medina - A Letter From The CandidateSubmitted by netzorro on Fri, 12/27/2013 - 23:36
Hey guys and gals we need a little help down here in Texas to help Debra Get elected.
Every $10 helps. Or more/ (-:
As the year comes to a close, I want to again send my wishes that you've had a joy filled Christmas.
I am also writing about another important matter. As you know, I'm campaigning for the Republican nomination for Texas State Comptroller. The Comptroller’s office influences nearly every financial decision made in Texas government, from budgeting, to revenues, to spending and investments. I want to make sure Texans get an honest and accurate accounting of their money, and a fair and equal application of the law for everyone.
In the coming weeks, you're going to see and hear media reports about the financial standing of candidates in the state-wide races as each of us must report to the Texas Ethics Commission our campaign contributions and expenditures as of Dec. 31, 2013. While my campaign may seemingly be at a disadvantage financially, I wanted to point out that the work of getting to know voters all across Texas (and of them getting to know me) began years ago.
During the 2010 primary season, the Debra Medina Campaign raised just over $870,000 and spent nearly $800,000 sharing our message of private property ownership, individual freedom and state sovereignty. That was a very significant investment and I've continued to build on those ideas, continued to engage in public discourse and policy making around these and the all important fiscal issues facing our state.
So while those dollars will not show up on these most recent reports, they are very much a part of the equation that will help determine the outcome in the March 2014 primary. I know we've invested those dollars wisely and I'm committed to doing the same with every dollar that is contributed in this campaign effort.
I am asking you again to help me in this effort. While the political class loves to declare their own victorious even before the polls open, let's show them, it's Texas voters who decide elections. Can you help today? Make a contribution, and/or volunteer to help.
Every dollar that is contributed between now and midnight Dec. 31, 2013 is magnified by the press and media attention that will shine on that upcoming campaign report.
Can you help by making a donation of $100, $250 or $500? I greatly appreciate your support.
