Sen Karen Spilka: Announces her candidacy for 5th Congressional District

Dear Steve,
I have some very exciting news to share with you: when Ed Markey becomes our next U.S. Senator this month, I will be a candidate for Congress from the 5th Congressional District. 
You and I have worked hard and achieved some great victories together for Massachusetts over the past 12 years. Now, I'm asking for your support again. 
I'm running for Congress because I have never been afraid to fight for what I believe in—and I know how to turn that fight into real results. In a time of cynical sound bites and the promise of quick fixes, I always follow one simple formula: lead with your heart and back it up with a lot of hard work. It's the reason why we now have public bus service in MetroWest, a statewide system of mental health services that keeps our teens out of the criminal justice system, and a cost containment measure in our healthcare reform that will save us $1B over 10 years—all things that someone, somewhere, said could never be done.  
Our country faces seemingly insurmountable challenges, including creating good jobs at every skill level, putting middle class families back on the solid foundation we deserve, and rebuilding our infrastructure so our economy can get humming again. Someone, somewhere, is saying that these things can't be done.  
Together, we can prove them wrong. 
Volunteer to knock on doors, make phone calls or write a post card to your neighbor, and together we can ensure more funding for our kids' education. Donate $3, $12, $25 or more today, and together we can fight for good jobs for middle class families. Invest in our campaign today, and I will invest my heart and hard work in creating a brighter future for all of us. 
I hope you will join me. Regards,Karen

P.S. Sign up today to join our volunteer team, and we will be in touch very soon with opportunities to get involved!
