email from Lois Herr, 8/26/10:
I just received an email from Congressman Joseph Pitts encouraging his supporters to help him attack the pensions of working families.
I was shocked that my congressman would make such a callous assault on the foundation of working people’s financial security for crass political purposes.
This extreme right-wing agenda is exactly the reason I have decided to run for Congress. Pennsylvania’s 16th is realizing that we can’t afford any more of the Party of “No.”
Please help me stop Pitts with a contribution of $25, $50, $100, or even $500 today.
Pitts has said “No” again and again. No to health care. No to working families. No to the environment. This must stop.
With my endorsements from the Sierra Club and the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO this week, I showed that I am ready to take this seat from the reactionary right wing and bring sense back to the 16th. The polls put me within single digits of Pitts. I am poised to win.
But I do need your help.
Can you contribute $25, $50, $100, or $500 today to bring sense to this congressional seat?
Thank you for all of your support.
Candidate for US Congress
