Jay Swearingen: We Have An Opponent
On Tuesday, the campaign gods smiled on our race and gave us Jerry Nolte as our opponent in the General Election for Clay County Presiding Commissioner.
That's great news.
Jerry's Primary campaign was well-funded, but unprofessional and only barely effective. He won by the skin of his teeth thanks to the anti-Pam-Mason endorsements by all the local Clay County papers and the Kansas City Star; endorsements that will likely come my way in the fall.
Jerry is an artist from Gladstone, and his resume has only one item of note - eight years in the Missouri House of Representatives.
Some called him "No-Show Nolte" for missing nearly 250 votes in a single legislative session. But I think that moniker is unfair. Jerry made all the important votes, like voting to gut Medicaid at the direction of Gov. Matt Blunt, and voting for his own bill to decrease the minimum wage by overturning a minimum wage ballot initiative that was supported by more than 79% of your Clay County friends and neighbors.
My master of public administration degree, decade of experience working in municipalities and counties creating jobs, and 12 years in the U.S. military will set me apart from the far-right Jerry Nolte in the eyes of the voters.
But I have to have the financial resources necessary to communicate with voters how my experience and education have uniquely prepared me to be Clay County's next presiding commissioner. And I need your help to do that.
Please consider making a $25, $50 or $100 contribution to our campaign today.
Our campaign has purchased all the signs, letterhead and office supplies we will need through November. Now, every dollar we raise goes directly into our strategy of direct voter contact designed to compare my extensive experience with my opponents lack thereof.
A $25, $50 or $100 contribution from you today will help move this campaign closer to victory.
I can't be successful without you. Thank you in advance for your willingness to help.
