A successful political campaign requires donations. That’s the reality. Without sufficient funding, a campaign quickly loses the ability to grow its base and fund its operations. Operations include overhead expenses, staff salaries, supplies, utilities, advertising, travel expenses, and fundraising. It takes a team to manage all the moving parts of a professional campaign and, as the campaign progresses, the team must grow to keep up with the increase in the number of engagements, communications, and travel.

Your donation funds my campaign. That’s the technical benefit. But it also tells me that you believe in me as your candidate. This is equally important. No matter the size of your donation, your support provides a motivational benefit that keeps my team and me fighting on your behalf. 

For my part, I pledge to treat your donation with the same frugality and respect as I do the revenue in my successful business, The Pisgah Inn. Waste or extravagance will not be tolerated.

If you haven’t yet, please donate today. We appreciate and need each and every one of you.

Respectfully yours,

Bruce OConnell
