We are just inches away from being on the ballot for House of Representatives in New York’s new 7th Congressional District. We have a hearing at the Board of Elections on Tuesday May 1st @ 1:30 PM, 42 Broadway 6th Floor in Manhattan to see if we are going to be on the ballot. As Bum Rush the Vote is first and foremost dedicated to political education, we encourage you to come and witness what it looks like behind the curtain at the BOE.
General objections were filed against us last week, but it looks like they are not going to be initiating a ballot challenge as specifications were not filed by the deadline last night. Seems like they heard us loud and clear, that we were not going to tolerate any sort of voter suppression money game.
In our efforts to get money out of politics, unfortunately we still have to raise money. Please contribute to our Act Blue page. We are committed to not taking any corporate money in this election. That means we need many small donations. Our opponent’s money has hardly come small donors at all. It mainly comes from Washington, PAC’s and the Banks. This is what separates us.
If you truly believe in getting money out of politics, we are on the front lines. As yet, we cannot get money out of politics, but we CAN get corporate money out of politics, but only if the people who say they care about it, prove that with actual support and real resources.
