There are loads of opportunites to support Flaherty!
There is only ONE race that pits good guys (Dems, of course!) vs. the bad guys before the General Election in November. That is the race for State Representative in the 30th District on TUESDAY, APRIL 11, between Shawn Flaherty, the only Democratic candidate for State Representative in the District 30 Special Election to replace Jeff Habay, and the Republican candidate he is running against. To pull off a win for the Democrats, we need YOUR help- and there are lots of ways to get involved.The Special Election is April 11, so with only two weeks to go, Shawn, and the Democratic Party, need your help.
Aside from being the only opportunity in the next month to take a state house seat back to the Democratic side, this race has further reaching implications. This state representative district is in the same area of Allegheny County that gave birth to Republican Congresswoman Melissa Hart and Senator Rick Santorum when both were just rising stars on the national scene. The Republican candidate for this race is a Santorum-Hart clone, and we can't afford another one.
Shawn Flaherty, on the other hand, son of former Pittsburgh mayor Pete Flaherty, will bring commonsense solutions to create real property tax reform, protect the quality of our public education, and ensure a more open government. Shawn is the only candidate with the experience of helping residents reduce their property taxes. His law firm has helped homeowners save more than fifty million dollars in assessments, and as Representative, he will bring that same smart approach to Harrisburg with the Shawn Flaherty Plan for Real Property Tax Reform.
There are visibilities scheduled for Rush hour this Friday at the intersection of: Mt. Royal Blvd & Rt. 8 - It's the fisrt traffic light after exiting Rt. 28 at the Route 8/Butler exit.
There are also opportunities to phone bank, canvasss, etc. We MUST win this race!!
The campaign will be canvassing Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and all day on Saturdays and Sundays. Please sign-up for whenever you may be available. The campaign will also be phoning whenever anyone is available.
On the weekend of April 8-9, the last weekend before the election, the PA Young Dems will also be organizing a statewide Campaign Invasion, providing lodging to Democrats from across PA willing to come in and help for the final push. More information on this effort to follow.
If you'd like to get involved, make a real difference, and get yourself tuned up for the rest of the big races in 2006, please email or call the campaign at (412) 418-7330 to get involved and talk to Campaign Manager, Shawn Westcott (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
