We met our goal ahead of schedule - let's go for $40,000

For immediate release
Friday, December 28, 2007
Media contact: Patrick Corcoran (847) 687-7579

On Dec. 18, we set the goal of raising $26,000 by Dec. 31. Thanks to you, we've already raised more than $31,000.

So we've set a new goal - to raise $40,000 before the end of the 4th quarter filing period. At the end of the last quarter, we raised $30,000 in a very short amount of time, so we know we can raise $10,000 in four days.

Most of you know by now that we picked the $26,000 figure because that's how much Dan Lipinski received from oil interests since he took office in 2005, the year he voted for the Bush energy bill, which gave oil companies $8 billion in tax breaks and permission to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

We want you to help us show Lipinski what people-powered fundraising is all about.

The Feb. 5 Democratic Primary Election is just 39 days away. If you'd like to volunteer for our campaign, call (708) 579-2834 or visit www.PERA08.com.
