As you may have heard by now, I'm running for re-election for Library Trustee in Brookline and I'm facing a contested election, with five candidates running for the four positions. (You can find out more about my campaign at http://www.bursteinforbrookline.com.) We set up a campaign committee with Nomi as the chair, and we're holding a fundraiser this Sunday. We were trying to think of something appealing to encourage people to come to a fundraiser, and we think we hit on it.
Nomi's going to bake her award-winning cookie bars, and we're offering them to friends who stop by on Sunday. In turn, we're asking for a tiny, minimum donation of $5 towards my re-election campaign (although of course, anyone is welcome to donate more if they wish).
Here are the details:
Burstein for Brookline Baked-Goods Fundraiser
Join Michael A. Burstein, 2010 candidate for Brookline Library Trustee, for a baked-goods fundraiser. For a minimum donation of $5, you can meet with the candidate and sample Nomi S. Burstein’s award-winning chocolate chip cookie bars and other baked goods.
Date: April 11, 2010
Time: 12-3 PM
Location: Our home (please contact us if you need the address)
If you're so inclined, stop by, say hello, meet our kids, and make a donation. And we'd appreciate it if you'd let us know if you're coming so we have enough cookie bars on hand.
And feel free to pass the word!
