If you haven't already, please view my delegate campaign video on the left explaining why I wanted to be a delegate. Being elected a delegate to represent Democrats Abroad at the Democratic National Convention is a big honor and I am thrilled to be able to participate in this way. Now I need your help to cover the cost of being a delegate.
Convention delegates have to pay their own transportation to Charlotte, for their hotels rooms, food and other incidentals. For me that means:
- Round trip airfare from Stockholm to Charlotte ($1,074.20)
- Hotel ($650.00)
- Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) weekly card ($17.50)
- Estimated food ($175.00)
- Estimated WiFi/Internet/Mobile phone access ($100)
I support the Democratic Party for many reasons. Here are just a few issues Democrats support that are important to me:
Civil Rights Act and the right to vote;
Affordable Health Care Act;
Immigration Reform; and
Gays serving in the military.
Visit the Democratic Party website for more information.
I will be forever grateful for you helping me fund my trip to the convention. Thank you for your support and sharing your generosity with me!
