Contribute Now to Working for Free

by Matthew "Mudcat" Arnold


I say all the time that I'd do my job for free, and that I'm amazed even that people pay me to do what I do. I love my job. But right now, that's especially true because I'm working for Darcy Burner, who is running for Congress in Washington's 8th District.

Darcy's great. We need people like her in Congress. She's intelligent, thoughtful, and is legitimately invested in the welfare of the people in her district. But more importantly, she's a great fit for me. She's funny and nerdy and calls me out when I'm wrong and defends me when I'm right. She takes care of her people, and that's a rare thing in a candidate. I feel like I'm lucky to be a part of this campaign. Like I've got a job I'd do for free.

Money is always the biggest demand for a campaign. You always need more than you have. And we're in the most competitive and expensive Congressional race in the country. I want to help with that. So I'm asking you, my family and friends, to help me do what we all want to do- work for free. I want to raise enough money to pay for my salary for one month. It's four thousand dollars. I'm starting with a pretty small list, but I'd like to ask you all to give, and then pass this on to other people.

This will have a big impact on our campaign and on our ability to win in November. Please give, and please pass this along to your friends.

Thank you,
