Sean Bielat asks for $150,000 to put him on Ballot
Dear Fellow American,
Sometimes late at
night, after my kids are tucked into bed and my wife has fallen asleep, I lie
awake worrying about the future. How will I provide for my family if the
economy collapses? How do I save for my kids' college education and retirement
with health care costs skyrocketing and taxes increasing each year? Are my kids
going to have the same opportunities this country gave me?
It's a scary time to be an American.
husband, father, U.S. Marine, and small businessman I recognize what I can do to
help shape our future and ensure we remain the strong and prosperous country we
always have been. Nothing will change in Washington if we elect the same circle
of people—the Barney Franks, Joe Kennedys, and Ed Markeys of the world—over and
over again. We need a new way of thinking in Washington to succeed and preserve
the American way. So
I'm launching a campaign for the open U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts to
replace John Kerry.
I don't want to wake up one day to find
we're fighting the war on terror on American soil or to learn that the Chinese
have called in our debt and that we're beholden to them. And I never want to
experience an America where our most basic liberties—freedom of speech and
religion, freedom to bear arms, and freedom to succeed through our own merit—no
longer exist. I know you don't either, and that's why I'm reaching out to you
You see, to get on the special election ballot, I need to
submit 10,000 valid signatures from registered voters by 5:00 PM on February
27. It sounds simple, but Massachusetts law makes it nearly impossible
to succeed without hiring a professional signature collecting firm. Unlike most
of the candidates in this race, I don't have the personal assets or wealthy
backers to write a check and be done with it; I'm relying completely on the
support of national conservatives, like you, to afford signature collectors.
There is so much at stake—and while I hope to
live my golden years in relative prosperity and security—I'm really doing this
for my kids and the grandchildren I hope to one day have. I know you share these
concerns and that's why I can't emphasize to you enough how critical your
support is today.
