Columbia County Democrats ActBlue Appeal Launched

This has been an amazing year.

We Did It!! Barack Obama is our President-elect, Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand was reelected in a landslide and Democrats are at a virtual tie with Republicans in Columbia County.

But all of our gains have left the committee’s treasury empty, so we are asking for your help right now. We understand that the economy has taken a toll on many of us and that most of us have been making contributions all during the election season. We are asking that you make one more.

Please make the largest contribution you are able to today.

2009 is a pivotal year in Columbia County. Democrats need only two more seats on the Board of Supervisors to take control of the Board for the first time in decades. With control of the Board will come fiscal resposibility, the end of cronyism regarding employment and contracts, real environmental responsibility, long-term strategic planning and a renewed focus on ethics.

But in order for us to take the Board of Supervisors we must replenish our coffers. The Republicans know that they are on the ropes. They will be fighting with everything they have. We must be prepared to do the same.

Please make a contribution today.

No amount is too small. If all you can do is $10, please do that. If you are able to make a large contribution, now is the time to do it.

Columbia County Democrats have never been more united or stronger. Your contribution right now, will help us to finally turn Columbia County BLUE!
