Former Secretary of State and US Senator officially launched her candidacy for President in New York City this weekend to huge crowds and less than a week later, she’s bringing her campaign to Orange County.
Irvine Council member Beth Krom offered this letter about the June 18 event in Newport Beach.
I know that, like me, you are concerned about the future of our country. While it may seem too early to care about the 2016 election, the truth is that Republicans see an opportunity to take the Oval Office along with their other conquests, and our greatest weakness is complacency.
That’s why I am writing to invite you to join me in being an early supporter of Hillary Clinton.
This Thursday, June 18th, Hillary Clinton will be here in Orange County at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach for a special fundraiser. The event will be from 7:30 to 9:30 and will include an intimate conversation with the candidate.
There are two levels of support: $1000 and $2700. I know that bar may be high for some, but for those of you who are able, please consider donating and attending. For those who cannot give at these levels but would like a chance to attend…read on.
You must donate online to secure admission to the event. The link to contribute is: https://www.hillaryclinton.com/special-events/conversation-hillary-jun-18/?raiser=82736
For those who would like to provide early support to Hillary’s campaign and would welcome a chance to attend this event — but who cannot commit $1000 at this time — I have another option tailored just for you.
Everyone who donates $250 through the link above before this Wednesday, June 17th will have an opportunity to attend.
For every four $250 donors, a name will be drawn. That’s a 25% chance to attend this very special event — perhaps your only opportunity to be at a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton here in Orange County. You will be notified by Wednesday evening if your name has been selected.
I have had the good fortune to hear Hillary Clinton speak on several occasions. She is one of the few politicians whose words inspired me, touched my heart and convinced me that her motivation is service in the public interest.
Hillary’s lifelong passion for improving the lives of all Americans is at the heart of her campaign and she has the character, the intelligence, the determination and the experience to put people back at the center of our national agenda.
I hope you will support Hillary Clinton, support this event and encourage others to do the same.
We are fighting against ignorance and an all out agenda to abandon “We the people” in service to the selfish interests of the extreme partisans and self serving profiteers. If our democracy is worth fighting for, we must not abandon our post as citizens. Let’s work together to take back America.
