* From a Scott Drury fundraising appeal…
Subject: We will not be silenced
David - Last week, we put out a call to action for our August fundraising deadline tonight at midnight, and the response has been truly humbling.
In recent weeks, the efforts to silence our campaign have reached new heights. On an almost daily basis, we learn of attempts to exclude our voice from Democratic forums. What are they scared of? For the first time in decades, there is a campaign that seeks to blow up the status quo and replace it with a government that works for us.
Next week is the unofficial start of campaign season. Help us send the strong message that our voice will not be silenced by those intent on clinging to power. Step up and support our campaign before midnight tonight.
If you stand with us and are ready to seize upon this opportunity, now is the time to act. Our campaign only succeeds when everyday Democrats across the state reject our broken system and make a contribution to our campaign:
Democratic Candidate for Governor
Drury’s last A-1 was filed in July and he reported receiving $1,000 from a Wilmette resident.
