Huge thanks to the award-winning Double R Productions for their friendship, talent, and remarkable generosity. Thanks to the Double R team: Rosemary Reed, Paul Jamali, Catherine Baum, Maxine Mendelovici, Hyoji Sun, Jessica Bouyer, and Delvakio Brown. I am so grateful!

Thanks to our Growing Team!

My personal thanks to everyone on our campaign! We have the most amazing team of dedicated souls who are working so hard! I am deeply grateful to each and every one of you. You are outstanding!
So many of you are going door to door, standing at farmer’s markets each weekend, attending debates with me, putting up or fixing yard signs all over town, hosting events for me, sharing information about our campaign with friends and neighbors, and so much more. Thank you, one and all!

Meet & Greets!
Special thanks to all those who are hosting events for me in their homes. We are having a blast. All the gatherings have been incredible.
Yard Signs, Window Signs, & Bumper Stickers! Oh my!

Driving home from City Hall, I saw our sign in front of this home in Old Town. It is a thrill for me to see all the support across our whole city. Our window signs and bumper stickers are around town, too. Heartfelt thanks!

Please email Ken, our Yard Sign Guru, if you would like a Yard Sign, a Bumper Sticker, and/or a Window Sign. Ken Hill delivers fast!
Many thanks to Ken! And my thanks to Winnie Hill for all her help with keeping track of our records. Ken and Winnie make a wonderful combination. My thanks to Dipti Pidikiti-Smith, our phenomenal treasurer, as well as Ernie Lehmann, our events coordinator, and John Salmon, our campaign manager, and Vicki Salmon, who is terrific wearing many hats on the team, including as coach. And big thanks to Betty Guttmann, our outreach coordinator, plus Robin Woods, our Parkfairfax Brigade coordinator, Alan Chodos, our volunteer coordinator, and our co-chairs, Laura Mandala and Eileen Cassidy Rivera. What would I do without all of their help, guidance, and support? My thanks to all of you and everyone on the team.
Thank you for all the Contributions!
Personal thanks for your generosity. We are doing well because of your help. Every dollar makes a big difference with our grassroots, all-volunteer campaign.
We continue to be focused on raising funds to cover our mass mailings to voters. A contribution of any size will make a difference and is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!
