Even if you
don't live in District 35, you can still help out. As a state
senator, the work I do will not
just help the people in my district, but people all over Kentucky
and the people who visit us.
A sign in
your yard and a sticker on your car are great ways to spread
the word, because people from District 35 will see that support
when they're on the road.
I would love
to have support and contributions from people from all over
Kentucky. We're all in this together, so tell your friends and
family about the changes we're trying to make and encourage them
to my campaign as well.
If you do live
in District 35, your help means even more. Please help in any
way you can by signing up for yard signs or stickers, making
a contribution, ordering a t-shirt, and, of course, by voting
for me on November 4, 2008.
