Matt Burden at BlackFive is running for office:
For more than 20 years, I’ve served my country, fighting to protect and preserve the American freedoms, rights, and values that make this country great, first as an Airborne Soldier – and then as one of the leaders of the Internet political revolution that has held arrogant and corrupt leaders accountable from city halls all the way to Washington D.C.
After much thought and one helluva exploratory committee, the green light is on and I’m ready – I have decided to run for office. I will change Illinois’ political landscape and culture of corruption. But I can’t do it without your help.
But he needs help:
If I can raise $100,000, I can be competitive and if I can raise $250,000 I can win.
My competitors have an “advantage”. Most politicians raise that kind of money from special interests $5,000 and $10,000 at a whack. Then they’re owned by them.
While there is no campaign contribution limit in Illinois (something I will change), I want to raise it $10 at a time from you.
If 10,000 people give me $10, I’m competitive.
If 5,000 give me $10 and 5,000 give me $25 – the cost of two decent Scotches at a bar – I can raise $175,000.
Matt has done more for you and I as a soldier than a measly $10 could ever repay. Help him out of you can.
