I have decided not to take campaign contributions from corporations. I think that sort of thing invites corruption and greed. Instead, I am financing my own campaign, and my goal is to spend less than $1000. I am not running for City Council to make money. I am running because I want to serve my community.
So, how can you contribute? Here’s what you can do:
1.) Most importantly, you can vote on November 2. Local elections usually have a low voter turnout. Let’s change that. If you are not registered to vote, you can do so at the library or post office. Show you care about your community by voting.
2.) You can tell your friends and family to vote for me.
3.) You can be my friend on Facebook. That way, you’ll know about all my campaign events.
4.) You can host a Meet and Greet. A Meet and Greet is where you invite me to your home or a local coffee shop (I like Max Bloom’s Cafe Noir on Malden), and you invite your neighbors and friends, and we sit down and chat about local issues. I want to meet you and hear your ideas!
5.) You can wear a Jesse La Tour 4 City Council t-shirt. E-mail me and I’ll send you one for free.
6.) You can put one of my campaign posters in your yard and/or place of business. E-mail me and I’d be glad to bring you some. Also, I host poster-making parties, where you can make your very own poster. I want my posters to be unique and created by members of the community. Check my events tab to learn when the next poster party is.
7.) Be creative. If you have an idea or suggestion, e-mail me. I want to hear it. I’m here for you, Fullerton.
Here’s an example of a creative thing my friend Charlie Visnic did. Charlie’s goal is to do one creative thing a day for an entire year. Recently, his creative thing was to make a Mad Magazine-style foldout for my campaign. The first image is the folded paper, and the second image is the unfolded paper. Check out Charlie’s awesome blog, The B-Roll.
