Nixon fundraising pitch: Strong and steady leadership
In just 34 hours, we’ll close the books on 2011 – and on this important finance period for Gov. Jay Nixon’s re-election campaign. We’re almost at our end-of-year goal, but we need just a few more contributions to get there.
Help us finish 2011 strong with a last minute contribution of $5, $25 or $50 today. The books on the fundraising quarter close tomorrow night – so please act fast.
Over these past three years, Gov. Nixon has provided strong and steady leadership in these challenging times – balancing the budget, working tirelessly to create jobs, keeping taxes low on families, protecting our state’s perfect AAA credit rating and standing up for the values we share. And now, because of that focused leadership, Missouri is turning the corner and making clear progress: the unemployment rate is at a 34-month low, our state’s auto industry is making a historic comeback, more of our kids are going to college than ever before and Missouri is ranked one of the best states in the nation to do business.
And just last week, Gov. Nixon announced that Missouri has added nearly 11,000 manufacturing jobs in the past year. That’s on top of the thousands of new jobs that Ford and GM have announced they’re creating in the Show-Me State.
We’re on the right track, but there’s much more work to do.
So, before you celebrate New Year’s Eve, make one final contribution to help re-elect our Governor. Every bit helps.
Thank you for your continued support and have a safe and healthy New Year’s.
