An Upward Turn of Events...
Last night, I received a phone call from a close friend of mine who is a principal advisor in the Chumney campaign, and my friend had startling news.
My friend called to tell me that Carol's fundraising, which has been her weak spot up to this point, had taken a dramatic turn for the better since the beginning of August, and she was now pulling in $3000-6000 A DAY.
I stopped my friend and advised that I was too smart to be spun or be fed bullshit. My friend was ADAMANT, noting that they had seen the figures for themselves, and they went on to tell me that the campaign would now more than adequately be able to compete once September hit and the stretch run for the mayor's race hit.
This tells me that people have finally come to the inescapable conclusion that the only candidate capable of unseating the incumbent is Carol Chumney. It stunned me, not because Carol couldn't do it, but because I was not sure that the citizenry of Memphis would give her a chance; this news reaffirms my belief that she can win this race.
She is gaining momentum every day, and I am asking to you to get on board if you want TRUE, SERIOUS change in the operations of the City of Memphis. We have until October 4 to win this race, and if you believe as I do that the future of this city AND this region is at stake, come by and help. Click on this link, and begin the process of reclaiming this city for ALL of its citizens, not just the developers and those who live in gated communities.
If not here, then where? If not now, then when? If not you, then WHO?
The time is now.
