While Hal Heiner kicks off his general election campaign by opening a South End headquarters on Thursday- free and open to the public, his opponent, Greg Fischer, is kicking things off at The Olmstead.
The Fischer event, billed as a “kickoff fundraiser,” starts tomorrow at 6:00 P.M. and has a suggested minimum contribution of $100.
This isn’t an attack on Fischer, despite what a couple blowhards will allege in the comments (I thought I didn’t matter? Why foam at the mouth 24/7 if I don’t?), but a look at how the two candidates are conducting business.
Heiner’s event is obviously targeted to more everyday voters. And since so many people have asked me about the Fischer event, let’s take a look at the host list from the invitation to see who his event is targeting…
