Greetings Libertarian comrades!
Do you crave liberty in your lifetime? Here is your chance to make a difference. I am trying to show by example how we can build our party from the bottom up. I am on the path of success and want to keep the ball rolling. Up to this point I have been able to accomplish everything myself, without help. I realize that to progress any farther, I now MUST ASK FOR HELP. In my hour of need, I call on you, my libertarian fellows.
We have talked the talk long enough. Now is the time to walk the walk. I have made the commitment. I have laid the ground work. We have worked on too many losing campaigns over the years. I offer you a chance to participate in a WINNABLE RACE for a change. This is a money bomb request.
I am Norm Westwell. I am the only elected libertarian in Southern California. I am currently serving taxpayers as President of the Ocean View School District in Huntington Beach California.
The OVSD is comprised of about 50,000 registered voters. We operate 11 elementary schools and 4 middle schools, K-8 and operate with an annual budget of approximately $77 million. I am now in my 3rd year of governance. In 2008 I was re-elected, unopposed.
I am now running an active WINNABLE campaign for a seat on the Huntington Beach City Council in November, 2010. This will be my 5th run for this office. Admittedly the first 4 campaigns were only paper campaigns, but over this time I gained experience, campaign materials such as a huge stockpile of signs and most of all I have gained an enormous amount of name recognition and a record to stand on.
I already have printed seed materials, a Webmaster, a web site, a Director of Print Media, a Photographer, a Campaign Committee, and a Treasurer.
The election in 2010 will have 4 ballot positions, 1 incumbent, and 3 open seats due to term limits. It is anticipated that I will be the only non-incumbent holding a seat in public office. I project I can win this election with only $50,000 due to my great name recognition, campaign signs already in hand, poor economy, and the huge amount of precinct walking and community activism I have done over the years and am currently doing.
For example, Google my name, Norm Westwell and you will see I am very active. I get things done.
The City of Huntington Beach has a population of nearly 200,000 and is the 16th largest city in California. Boards and Commissions are DIRECTLY appointed bye each Council member. Again, this is a WINNABLE race!
I have already raised 1/10 of what I need to get elected.
Not only will they not support me, the Police, Fire, and Municipal Employees will each spend tens of thousands of dollars to oppose me. I already know this. This is why I call for your help. Are you a patriot? Are you hungry for a win as I am?
The bottom line is; I NEED YOUR HELP. This is a WINNABLE race. If each of us can contribute $25 I can win this thing and drag others up along with me. Isn’t this what we all want? Isn’t this what we all talk about doing; getting Libertarians into office? Here is our big chance, our big opportunity like no other in recent memory. Now is our chance to win a WINNABLE race, get a Libertarian elected into the 16th largest city in California. I call on you to not turn your back on a active Libertarian in his hour of need.
If you like my campaign, please give until it feels good.
