Mayoral Folks Kick Off General Election Campaign

June 29th, 2010 by jake · 2 Comments

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…

    Wow–kinda hard to avoid the continuation government label when you’re up to your eyes in money from the old guard and hiring Jerry’s old mouthpiece, Chris Poynter, to write your policy. And to think Fischer is trying to run as an “outsider”.

    It would be interesting to see how many of these folks have also donated to River Fields.

    Lars (and anyone else), I’d be happy to forward to you copies of River Fields donor lists. Just send a request by e-mail to steve@historyandissues.org.
