We received this note from Farrah Khan about her decision to run for Irvine City Council:
I wanted to share with you my intent to run for Irvine City Council. I have thought long and hard before making this decision, it wasn’t easy, but I feel it is very necessary. With my knowledge of Irvine, its politics and its current situation – I feel the Council needs a sound voice that does not bring with it baggage from the past.
Many of you know me well and also know how committed I am to every member of the Irvine community. My campaign is a grassroots campaign that will be built by community members like you: residents, students, employees, small business owners, corporations, religious and non-profit organizations. Each one of you has a stake in the upcoming 2016 local election and I urge to you participate.
Today, I have 3 asks of you:
- If you don’t know me personally, get to know me. Don’t rely on what you hear from others. Call me, email me, FB me, I am here for you and don’t mind answering your questions. My whole life has been based on integrity, it’s not a popular way of life, but it is one I am content with.
- In order to get the required endorsements and momentum to win, I need your help. Right now, I need to get 50,000 mailers out to Irvine residents – can you help me by contributing $25 to my campaign? If you are able to contribute more, please do. The maximum I can take from any individual is $470, $940 from couples.
- Will you be willing to volunteer? There are plenty of things to do from making phone calls to hosting Meet & Greets. It’s flexible and you can set your own schedule.
Please visit Farrah N. Khan | Candidate, Irvine Council Member | Irvine CA to find out more about me, to contribute and to sign up to volunteer.
