Dear Fellow Greens:

While the other races in the City have received widespread attention, the race to replace Sup. Tom Ammiano in District 9 has gone relatively unnoticed.  We have a very good chance at electing another Green to the Board of Supervisors and, in turn, electing another Green to be President of the Board.  Mark Sanchez has proven that he can represent Green values at a citywide level and link them to respected policy and sound legislation.  This is the kind of leadership we need at a local level to grow the party and offer an alternative to the Democratic machine.

Mark needs a hard commitment from you to be out the last weekends of the election.  We are going to need energetic bodies in the streets to get Mark into office.  For volunteer information, visit: https://app.e2ma.net/app/view:CampaignPublic/id:23898.1429207178/rid:358af214b3cba611f0cebd8c6a08eaea

This is a critical time in the campaign, and Mark's campaign desperately needs your help to finance its last round of literature.  You can donate by calling 415.430.7091, or making a check out to "SANCHEZ '08" and sending it to:
988 Valencia St.
San Francisco, CA 94110

Checks are still being matched 1 to 1, and your donation of $50 becomes $100 through matching funds. Your donation of $500 (the limit for individual donations) becomes $1,000.  Please consider a donation today!  http://marksanchez.org

We have put a lot of time and thought into our endorsements and would like to share our political analysis and ballot recommendations with Greens and allies citywide. We are currently raising funds to cover printing and mailing costs.
