Yes You Can

Contribute, that is. I’ve worked all day trying to figure out how to set up a secure campaign donations page with Paypal. It’s not as easy as I thought it would be. You can check it out here.

By the way, if you are a candidate for office, email me and I’ll give you the code to create the same type of page for your campaign.

[UPDATE]: Just to be clear and to respond to an email asking this, yes, I don’t care whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Green, Libertarian, etc., shoot me an email and I’m happy to help you with the coding.

    Erick,

    Are those statements for a city council election. You really can’t have Federalcontractors contribute to your campaign? That sounds like the congressional requiements.

  2. Erick says:

    Doug,

    Federal law prohibits campaign contributions from national banks, labor unions, and resident aliens. The prohibition applies to all races at all levels. I overlooked the contractor issue and will take it out.

  3. Erick says:

    Doug, I’d like to raise $10,000.00, and expect that to be the most I’d need for something like this race. I’ve got $8,000.00 left to go.

    Well, I finally brushed off the cobwebs from my my wallet, and donated to Erick.

    Fundraising is tough, and sucks more than anything else in politics, but it has to be done.

    Alot of us spend a good amount of time on this web site, and get a great deal of free entertainment and a chance to be spout off. How about repaying the guy and giving him a fighting chance in his race.

    To that end, I would like to challenge the regular posters to make a sizeable contribution and ease a bit of Erick’s burden. At $100 each, he would only need 80 more donations to reach his goal.

    Plus, think how much more receptive the zoning board in Macon might be when you need a variance once he is elected. (Kidding!!!)
