Letter from Bob

Hello everyone,
 
I’m writing to thank you all for your generous support for my campaign.  Thanks to our hard work and early start back in November, it looks like we are already headed to a winning campaign because the incumbent decided not to run for reelection in December and no one else has filed to run for the open seat.  After discussing with the campaign committee and staff, we think it would be best to pay off our remaining expenses and hold off on buying any more adds or yard signs. We will instead donate the money designated for advertising and printing to the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools.
 
I am planning to repurpose the time I had planned on using to campaign, and instead use that time studying up on the issues so that I can hit the ground running in May. 
 
Thank you so much for your support!
 
Sincerely,
 
Bob
