Fundraising Update: Steady, but Slow

by Philip Baruth

Our last fundraising push is off to a start, but honestly not an amazing start. And there are good reasons for that, not the least of which is that typically people don’t re-engage with the political process until mid-September. But it’s worth remembering that candidates who want Yankee to remain open, who favor economic development even where it significantly impacts Vermont’s highly marketable environment, and who oppose a woman’s right to choose and a same-sex couple’s right to marry — those candidates raise plenty of money no matter the season. So please help us pick up the pace on this last drive, if you can. The Act Blue link is here to donate any sum, large or small. Thanks in advance, not just for digging deep, but for being engaged before the traditional calendar says it’s maybe about time.
