Thanks to Steve House and Richard Sanborn for the support. Bad news is I didn’t get signatures from these two respected attorneys until after I sent the letter to the printer, but stay tuned for the revised online version in the next few days. Still welcoming support so let me know if you’re on board.
As far as the campaign, things are going very well. I will start knocking on doors this week and the parade season is upon us. If you’d like to march with us let me know and I’ll make sure I have plenty of shirts available. I also welcome door knocking help. I’ll provide a stack of door hangers so you can hit the neighborhoods around your homes.
Now that the campaigning season is here, we welcome your financial support, too. If you’d like to help out, individuals and non-Pacs can give up to $500 up to the primary, and another $500 after. Please send a check or money order made out to “Kevin Mark Smith for Judge,” attn Richard Peckham, Treasurer, to 1502 N. Broadway, Wichita, KS 67214.
Yesterday we set a daily record for visits on the campaign web site. We bested the day of my swearing in! Lots of new followers on FB, too. Please hop on the website, http://www.kevin4judge.com, and follow it. We’re building momentum thanks to lots of people who believe judges should stick to judging and not make themselves legislators.
Please send me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org, and let me know if you can help knock on doors. To support the campaign financially, you can send a check or money order made out to “Kevin for Judge,” attn Richard Peckham, to 1502 N. Broadway, Wichita, KS 67214. Individuals and non-Pacs can contribute up to $500 before the primary, and another $500 in a contested race after the primary. Thanks in advance for the support.
Friends, family, and fellow believers of the sanctity of separation of powers, let me know if you’d like to help out with the campaign. For now that means spending some time during the week and weekends knocking on doors and placing door hangers on potential voters’ doors. Not lots of time, just those spare minutes when you feel the urge. Send me and email with your address and I’ll give you some door hangers to place. Also, when we meet people it’d be helpful to ask if they’d let us put up yard signs when the time comes. Making a note of addresses of the yays then forwarding them to me will suffice here. Won’t order them unless we get a contest in the primary or general, but it’s time to take names and prepare.
The more legs the more effective we’ll be.
Also, let us know if you’re willing to financially support the effort. You can send a check made out to “Kevin Mark Smith for Judge” to the attention of Richard Peckham, Treasurer, to 1502 N. Broadway, Wichita, KS 67214. The max for the primary is $500.00 per person.
As the end of the year approaches and we prepare to ramp up the campaign, reality strikes. It costs anywhere from $20,000 to $60,000 to mount a successful judicial campaign. Costs include yard signs, mailings, TV commercials, billboards, etc. All of those things are expensive, and all for a position that pays less than most candidates make in private practice. Hence, fundraising is invitable. If you support my position on the issues–namely, judges apply the law and don’t make it!–as well as my specific objective in division 24–to restore integrity to the division–then I’m asking for you financial support as well as your vote.
I am pro-life, pro-family, and pro-religious freedom, and a good part of my legal practice has been committed to providing legal support to organizations that stand for these positions.
Please consider supporting the campaign. Individuals can give $500 before the primary and $500 after. Give whatever you can. Send checks made out to “Kevin Mark Smith for Judge” and mail to my office at 1502 N Broadway, Wichita, KS 67214.
I thank you in advance for your support.
