August 2010


DC for Democracy is pleased to sponsor a fundraiser next week for Mike Panetta. He has been an energetic, creative and reliable shadow representative for nearly four years and a thoroughly delightful person to work with. His commitment to statehood for the District of Columbia was a major reason for our endorsement of Mike in June and we look forward to working ever more closely with him once he is re-elected. Help us to make that possible by contributing as generously as you can to his campaign. Details are below.

Mike needs your support now. Please attend the fundraiser next Tuesday and/or donate as generously as you can to his campaign.
