In the announcement diary, I described Deb pretty generically – a Democrat who cares about education and health care and the environment running against an awful Republican. All of which is true, but there’s more to it. Deb is not a career politician. She’s a concerned citizen, just like the rest of us, who decided to put herself on the line and make a run for office. What’s more, Deb’s surprisingly good at the nitty-gritty of the campaign; she’s persistent, shows up at every Democratic event in the area, knocks doors all over her district, and works extremely hard at raising money. When a qualified candidate puts forth the effort like that, she needs like-minded folks like us to step forward and help her out.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday night. Please bring a suggested contribution of at least $10. Questions and suggestions welcome in comments.
