Trippi, you should see this. Howard Dean just sent out an email urging people to support Giles Perkins, candidate for Attorney General in Alabama. Governor Dean wants this to be seen and read by as many people as possible — We asked if it was ok to get to you and other blogs and he said we should guest post away! Thanks for spreading the word!
Finance & Operations Director for the Giles Perkins for Alabama Attorney General Campaign
Every so often you come across a candidate who is perfectly suited to take an open seat from the Republicans. That’s one reason why I’m so interested in the Alabama Attorney General race, where Giles Perkins is proving to be a legitimate and viable progressive candidate. I have worked with Giles Perkins many times throughout the years. He helped me when I ran for President and when I ran the DNC. If you go to Alabama to raise Democratic money you can always count on Giles. He and his wife Hillery have hosted events for many of our national leaders.
Giles know how to win. He was executive director of the Alabama Democratic Party in 1998, the last year a Democrat won the Governor’s mansion in Alabama. He is in a runoff election in twelve days on July 13th. He needs your financial help.
Giles is running on a progressive agenda. He has called for a moratorium on Alabama’s death penalty. He has called for a rewrite of Alabama’s archaic, regressive Constitution. Giles wants to establish a Civil Rights division in the Office of the Attorney General; the state which was the birthplace of the Civil Rights movement – certainly needs a Civil Rights division.
You learn a lot about a leader during a crisis. And right now, we’re learning a lot about how Giles Perkins would lead Alabama. Alabama’s coast is in peril, and Giles Perkins has the experience and skill to be an Attorney General who will take on BP and the Federal Government and make sure the citizens of Alabama’s coast are made whole sooner rather than later.
Electing people like Giles in Alabama is a next step in my 50-state strategy.
Please give $25, $50, $100 or more to Giles to help him reach his goal of $50,000 in the next two weeks. Help make sure he can protect not only Alabama’s fragile coast, but the state and her citizens.
With the challenges Alabama is facing in the years to come, we need someone who will focus on delivering effective solutions while working with others to solve the state’s problems.
Help Giles today by giving $25 or more. Giles will make sure Alabama moves forward with honesty and transparency and he will strive to protect all Alabamians.
Thank you for your support of Giles and don’t forget to give $25 or more to help him reach his $50,000 fundraising goal.
