You’re Invited: Wedsnesday, 5:30 pm, Bus Trip to Annapolis
January 12, 2010 4 Comments
Tired of high taxes and out-of-control spending that is bad for business, homeowners, and future generations?
You’re invited to participate in a statewide rally in Annapolis this Wednesday. The event, sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, is designed to let the governor and legislators know that they should curb spending, reduce taxes, and be more responsive to citizens.
Why on a Wednesday? This Wednesday is the first day of the legislative session and we want to convince them not to over-spend or raise taxes.
Buses will depart from the Catonsville Park & Ride (I-195 & Rolling Road) at 5:30pm this Wednesday. We’ll depart Annapolis around 8:30pm. I am one of three reform-minded candidates who want to see lower taxes and spending in Annapolis and Towson. I (Steve Whisler) am running for the Baltimore County Council. Al Nalley and Dave Augenbaugh are running for the House of Delegates.
We have already paid for the bus. The cost to ride is a suggested donation of at least $15 per person to cover our costs. If you’d like to give more, we’d really appreciate your support … campaigns are expensive to defeat incumbents. Per campaign finance laws, we must list your name and mailing address will all donations. If you prefer, you can pay cash; however, we suggest you write a check payable to “Slate for Fiscal Responsibility.” Campaign finance laws require us to issue receipts for donations of $50 or greater.
If you plan to attend, you must register in advance. We want to ensure we have enough space for everyone. We also would appreciate you providing your cell number in case we need to reach you in Annapolis and direct you back to the bus.
Americans for Prosperity will pass out hot beverages, hand warmers, and goodies in Annapolis. These events are actually pretty fun … make a sign, dress warmly, and bring a photo ID in case you need to enter the legislative building to use restrooms or warm up.
I hope to see you there!
Who knows, maybe my new friend and most likely, closet conservative, Steve Lebowitz will finally put down his fake battle axe and join us once and for all.
