Support Burger for Congress
Harry R. Burger needs your help to run for Congress! The Big Two parties get lots of money from billionaires and corporations, but the Green Party says no to them, so we only represent the interests of the American People. That means your donations need to give us enough to advertise and get our message out to the voters, to say to the Democrat AND Republican parties, "A pox on both your houses!"
Since before anyone alive can remember, government controlled by the Big Two parties has passed laws that benefit their true masters (the super wealthy, big corporate donors, the military-industrial complex) while leaving you holding the bag, while they give you lip service and blast you with propaganda ads to manufacture consent and keep their positions.
Most of our costs are related to printing and stationery, advertising and the like. We need to get the word out that another choice is available, and instead of the lesser of two evils, this one is a man who will stand up and truly protect the People, with no regard for corporate profits. Any American can contribute funds or volunteer to help our campaign!
The first step is getting on the ballot - between 2/25 and 4/2, I need at least 36 valid signatures from registered Green Party members who are correctly recorded by the Board of Elections AND are residents of NY CD2 - if Peter King is your Congressman now, that's your district (he's retiring this year). The signatures need to be collected in a very specific way by any NY Green Party member or Notary Public - contact us if you want to help with that part! Albany makes this complex and difficult to do exactly right, so really I need more like 70 to survive the challenges from the Big Two parties. The first big expense is putting together door hangers so that when we knock and nobody's home, we can leave a message behind to hopefully connect with them later!
